A Unique Floating Venue

Cruising along the Canal

London has a million secrets and its canals are one of its best kept. They provide a brilliant backdrop for all kinds of events and The Electric Barge is the perfect venue on which to explore this green corridor through the city.

Whether it’s for a Birthday Party, Anniversary, Surprise Hen Party, Launch Event, Office Party, Away Day or Meeting - you name it, we can host it. And with a capacity of 60 guests, we’ll do our best to fit you all in.

Our very large cabin, flexible layouts and host of catering options guarantee each event is unique - a perfectly crafted, bespoke canal boat party for you and your guests.

The cherry on top? Every event supports our charitable work as The Floating Classroom providing practical educational opportunities for local children and communities.

The whole process was stress free and felt custom made each member of staff we encountered was incredibly friendly and went to all lengths to help us with any requests we had.

You are a hidden gem and the chance to see London from a different side was a treat - as were the cygnets racing along side us.

WHat we do

Great Food, Great Drink, Great Company

Events don’t come in a “one-size-fits-all” package; each event on the barge is tailored to your needs and tastes because we know that what you want is something unique to you - something that stands out.

We listen to your needs, make suggestions where appropriate and work with you to ensure you host an excellent event. We have a selection of catering options to choose from and a bar menu that includes as many of your favourites as possible.

Once on board, our welcoming crew then look after you and your guests, helping you to relax and enjoy the cruise along the canal, knowing everything has been taken care of.

I have just celebrated my birthday on The Electric Barge and it was simply perfect.
Every aspect of this hire went like a dream, and I will certainly use them again for my next big party as there is just nothing else like this. Thanks for all your help in making my special day even more special.

The guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the crew were extremely helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend booking the Electric Barge for summer parties, and it’s a bonus that the money goes to a great cause!
