It does what it says on the tin. There's room for loads of people and alcohol is permitted. If you are a Londoner you will probably be fascinated by the underground network of canal tunnels and their history. It is quite astonishing to think that...More

Amazing captain/crew mates, very well looked after and an even more amazing ride down the canal. The tunnels were especially cool. 5* would thoroughly recommend!

We hire the narrow boat for our wedding party. We were allowed to decorate and set stuff up on board. Staff were friendly and helpful and unobtrusive. It was a great event and really good value.

I booked The Lapwing for a team night - 12 of us so the perfect size. We brought our own food and drink and had a great time with the team on board! Would definitely recommend!

Hello, yes we can take children on the boats provided they are accompanied by adults. The route goes through canal locks and a tunnel so there is plenty to see. Thank you
