Chartering the Edith May

Whether you are looking for somewhere to host a big birthday bash for over 60 people or a small group looking for a place to meet, the Edith May could be the perfect choice. The barge is now a well established venue whose unique feature is a fantastic atmosphere for all occasions. With the natural glow of the pitch pine timber, coupled with close ceilings and the coal fire on colder nights, few venues can match the warmth and versatility the barge provides.

Tea Rooms

Based in the old brickmakers dock in Lower Halstow, Kent, the Edith May Tea Room is how the barge now spends her winter months. First opened in November 2009 to allow the local villagers to see the barge in the final stages of her restoration, the homemade cakes proved a delicious success and the Tea Room grew in popularity, becoming established in its own right.
