    ''Shaken Not Stirred'' Sunseeker Superhawk Motor Yacht Rental in London, England

    This is a terrific charter. A perfect boat for sightseeing (I'd say 5 is about the max unless you have kids) and a well trained, very professional crew to ensure you have an amazing time on the water. Highly recommend!

Boating Guide - London

What to know about renting a boat in London

There are many great spots in London where travelers can rent a boat for a day on the water. Boat cruises on the River Thames, paddle boating in park lakes and canoeing in the canals are some of the options a traveler can choose from. It’s a fantastic way to see the sights and gain a totally different perspective on the city. Many points of interest are located on the banks of the river, so you won’t be missing out by opting for a boat ride over touring on land!

Cruise on one of many vessels - a speedy rib boat, a private yacht for you and your travel companions, take a quick ride on a massive passenger barge, or rent out an entire party boat for your private event. There are many ways and options for boats rent out for hours passing by the famous landmarks of London.

One alluring aspect of boating on the River Thames in London is the antique charm of the passenger boats. Enjoy open-air decks and saloon style interiors, complete with all amenities needed for catering.

For people looking to spend a day on the water paddling at their own speed, there are a variety of spots in the city to rent a canoe or a kayak. Check out Hyde Park to pedal boat on the Serpentine, or kayak down the Thames. If you’d rather cruise by wind power, the Thames Sailing Club is a great place to learn. You can also rent a sailboat or book a sailing charter.

Boating Events in London

Some of the best boating events in London include the May London On-Water Yacht and Boat Show. It’s a ticketed event that features a collection of motor yachts, sailing yachts, and power boats and takes place right in the heart of the city.

Other Things To Do in London

There is no end to the list of things to do while on a trip to London. For history buffs, tours of the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, The British Museum, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace are not to be missed. If you like impressive city views, take a ride on the London Eye or ascend 72 stories to the Skydeck of the Shard.

If shopping and dining is your primary focus while traveling in London, be sure to check out Oxford Street, Knightsbridge, Covent Garden and Carnaby Street are not to be missed. Walking through Hyde Park, stopping in St. Paul’s Cathedral, admiring the Lions of Trafalgar Square and watching the changing of the guard in front of the palace are all experiences not to miss out on either.

Marinas in London

There are a variety of marinas to choose from when inquiring about renting a boat while in London. They are scattered at different points on the River Thames. The St. Katharine Docks Marina is a historically significant spot to not only rent a boat or yacht but also dive deeper into the rich history of London, or stop at some of the local shops and restaurants in the area. The South Dock Marina, Greenland Dock and Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre are all great options for people looking to book an incredible experience on the water in London.

About London

Famous for the Royal family, centuries of history, and being an international hub for finance, trade, politics and culture, London is a must-visit city for any traveler. Situated on the River Thames and spread across various districts, each one a unique neighborhood with its own points of interest, restaurants, and things to experience.

The weather in London is mild year-round, with few days of extreme temperatures. It can be very rainy in the winter and springtime, with many foggy days. The best time of year to visit London is in the summertime when there are more clear days of sunshine and warm weather. The summertime is the festival season when people take to the outdoor green spaces to enjoy concerts and live entertainment. The summer is also the most expensive time to visit, but it’s worth it for the warmer days and longer daylight hours. In winter, the sun sets very early. September and October are a good choice for travelers looking to avoid the crowds and high prices but still have a good chance for decent weather.

It’s worth it to check out a calendar of events before planning your trip to London. Various festivals take place all throughout the summer. Major events like Wimbledon, Notting Hill Carnival, and Pride London draw huge crowds, raising prices on accommodation. In the winter, the beautiful decorations and holiday spirit that lights up the city makes it a magical destination to visit before Christmas.
