Thames Barge Edith May
Static Charter

Whether you are looking for somewhere to host a big birthday bash for up to 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.

The main cargo hold can be adapted to suit your party, with the tables and chairs either being cleared to create a large space for mingling and dancing or left in place to provide plenty of seating. For those seeking a quiet place amongst the roar of a party, the original Master’s Cabin at the aft end of the barge allows for a few moments of quiet conversation.

A bar can be arranged, with an option of a cash bar or ‘bring your own’ (small corkage fee applies). We are happy to provide a quote for catering to suit your needs, which will always be of a high quality.

The standard cost of hiring the barge for a private party is £125 per hour. Concessions are available for smaller groups and we are happy to discuss quotes on an individual basis.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss the options available.
