For the smaller more private experience why not have a "Poop Deck Party".  You can reserve the whole Poop Deck for your family and friends to enjoy your special occasion. Secluded from the rest of the passenger decks and enjoying table seating for up to 12 people with direct access to the bar and facilities, a Poop Deck Party is the best way to enjoy an afternoon on the river.
We can provide decoration, music, drinks and snacks to make for an easy and fun event.  The deck will be roped off so that you can enjoy the cruise without interruption.
To make reservations for a Poop Deck Party please phone in advance.  The reservations can be made for the public day trips at 1pm & 3pm. The trips are one and a half hours long. Reservation for the Deck is £40 plus the normal ticket price for the passengers attending your party.  The maximum passengers on the Poop Deck is 12.
