Keeping you safe

We have limited table and group sizes for this cruise as well as overall passenger numbers. Each table will be shielded from other guests by one of our brand new and bespoke boat screens and/or carefully planned out seating, which give you a great view but also keep you safe.

We do ask you to wear a face covering for boarding the vessel or when moving around and you will find our crew both on deck, in the galley and waiting staff are wearing additional protective PPE in line with government requirements. We are all the same friendly smiling people ready to help you enjoy autumn on the Thames You can find full details here.
