BETTER BY WATER
ABOUT DIXIE QUEEN
A warm welcome aboard the replica paddle steamer Dixie Queen, London’s largest luxury floating event venue.
A large and versatile event venue able to host up to 620 guests, Dixie Queen’s proportions set the atmosphere of a ship rather than a large boat. Her flexible layout allows for a wide variety of events to be accommodated, including a celebration, birthday party, wedding reception, corporate function, business meeting or conference, product launches, Christmas party and much more. To reflect this versatility, her charter rates adapt around the number of guests on board, making her affordable for smaller groups that require the space she offers. She really is a unique venue for hire in London.
The Dixie Queen is centrally heated throughout: warm and welcoming in the winter, with an air-cooling system maintaining a pleasant temperature throughout the warmer summer months. A full brigade of chefs can serve a range of creative cuisine to meet your requirements and budget, while we can set the atmosphere on board with flowers, decorations and entertainment to really bring your event alive.
Wow guests with the enchanting and ever-changing backdrop of London’s famous sights while cruising aboard this large replica 19th century paddle steamer. Sail east past the Tower of London and your guests will marvel as Tower Bridge is raised for the Dixie Queen to pass, momentarily bringing London’s busy traffic to a halt. Cruise on past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round The O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier.
