The New Orleans

Styled after the classic Mississippi paddle-steamer, The New Orleans is the largest and most luxurious passenger boat on the upper Thames.

It’s the perfect vessel both for a glamorous evening cruise and for a scenic daytime river trip.

The New Orleans is an ideal setting for any kind of large event, whether that’s a private party or a corporate conference. She is often used as a unique venue for weddings, anniversaries, and even wakes.

On board the vessel, we have a captain, crew, waitstaff and bar staff, all dedicated to ensuring that your event is an unforgettable experience.
