We hired the Elsdale II for our daughter’s 7th birthday party and it exceeded all our expectations! Everyone had a brilliant time!

The boat is moored at Packet Boat Marina, in Cowley, Uxbridge. There's a large free car park.

On the boat, there are toilets and a kitchen. We brought our own party food, but the skipper can arrange catering.

We booked a two hour cruise along the Grand Union Canal. The activities and timings are completely flexible and Joe, the skipper, is friendly and informal. Joe also recommended and engaged the services of a local Entertainer/Magician, who was absolutely brilliant!

We travelled to Cowley Lock, which at this time of year, was more like a waterfall!

We cannot recommend enough! This is a hidden gem!
