All Aboad The Christmas Boat

Christmas always seems to come round quickly and there is always 1 million things to do at the last minute. If you are in charge of booking the Christmas party at work this year, then you might be starting to think about a few ideas and that’s great. But if you’re not, here’s some of the problems you can overcome by booking your office party early with West End on the Thames.

Feed your guests

Dinner service is always a central part of an event and filling up your hungry guests with great food is always important. There is a range of catering options that will suit your guests’ needs at your Christmas party on the Thames. Our most popular choice of a sit down Christmas dinner will help you get into the festive mood but if you prefer canapés, or a hot fork selection, they are both a popular option.

Get creative

If you book late, there is less time to transfer ideas into reality. Although the vessels will have a Winter Wonderland theme this Christmas, we welcome your own ideas for a theme or concept. Leave the planning process to us and just check in on the progress along the way.


Putting together a playlist on Spotify or sticking someone’s iPod on might be great for the office lunch hour, but when it comes to a big event like this, it needs to be a bit more professional. West End on the Thames has some fantastic industry connections and has access to top DJ’s and performing artists that know how to get a party going! There will be plenty of space on the dance floor for everyone to have a dance to the music. We take great responsibility in making your entertainment then best it can be, but we aren’t responsible for any of the dodgy dance moves it makes you do…

Easily Accessible

The major plus of a river boat is the venue is mobile, subject to pier availability, so it can actually begin and end wherever you want it to. We have access to multiple piers along the river, so if you want to start in the East end of town and finish in the West, we can arrange for certain pick up points.


Having to organise a big celebration can easily add to your never ending to-do list. Let us take the weight of planning your party for you. Relax this Christmas and let us do the hard work so you have time to enjoy a glass of champagne or two at your Christmas party this season.
