Take this opportunity to wow guests with the enchanting and ever-changing backdrop of London’s famous sights whilst cruising aboard this replica 19th Century paddle steamer - London’s largest entertainment, conference and party boat.  See who attended in 2018 here.

We'll sail east past the Tower of London, on past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round the O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier before turning back for a Grand Finale. Just before we dock, Tower Bridge will be raised. London’s busy traffic will come a halt. The Dixie Queen will pass through in a blaze of coloured lights and the applause of your guest. This is a spectacle not to be missed.

You can start your party early and join Eden Brown for pre-boarding drinks at All Bar One, a short walk from Butlers Wharf Pier.  All Bar One is a stylish city bar where you can find a sophisticated space to indulge in an excellent selection of food and drink - their staff will always make sure you’ll always find a glass of the good stuff.
