Summer holiday fun with Go Boat

It’s the summer holidays! Hooray. As temperatures are continuing to soar, you may be looking for a fun family friendly boating activity and GoBoat are just the ticket! This boating experience, offer guests one, two or three hour trips on its electric picnic boats seven days a week, with booking starting from 9 AM. Expect a leisurely cruise, with the boats travelling at speeds of 4mph, and take in some of London’s most impressive views including Hampton Court Palace (Kingston) and Little Venice and Camden Lock (Paddington).

Groups of up to eight can board each boat and the experience is both dog and child friendly with life jackets and buoyancy aids provided. No prior boating knowledge is necessary, with staff giving a full tutorial before setting sail, meaning it’s something for the whole family to enjoy. 

GoBoat Head of Marketing, Ryan Price, said: “It has been great to see so many families booking a GoBoat for the summer holidays. It’s a really fun day out for all ages and we can’t wait for families to enjoy the great weather we’re having in a unique way. We’re open every day of the week for bookings for parents and their children to enjoy.

“People can charter our electric picnic boats and discover some of London’s most beautiful areas without the need for a licence. We’ve already seen a huge influx of bookings and cannot wait to see everyone taking to the water this summer.”

GoBoat costs start at £89 per hour but do keep an eye out for special offers and discounts. More info and booking via their website at
