Thames Boat Hire, The Dixie Queen

The Dixie Queen is a River Thames Charter Vessel  of wonderful proportions suitable for all seasons with an extremely flexible layout.  The upper deck  has a large reception and dining area plus a stage with a night club specification sound and lighting system and a large outdoor viewing deck. There are two horseshoe bars, a lower deck for seating or dining and full a/v facilities are available  for conferences and meetings.  The Dixie Queen cruises between the Tower of London towards Greenwich and The Thames Barrier and is too tall to sail west towards Westminster however hirer's have the unique advantage of seeing Tower Bridge raised especially for their guests.
