The Gatsby is Little Venice’s latest pleasure boat venture, and its without a doubt the smallest. Trips are a unique experience because the vessel is a mahogany and teak punt that once plied the Thames during the 1930s. Punts were very popular on the Royal River in those days – especially among romantic couples!

The Gatsby was restored by Chertsey boatyard in 2015. It has been fitted out with a canopy and sides for all weathers, and sports a electric motor and is absolutely silent as it glides on the canal. Boat trips commenced 10 July 2017 providing bespoke and enchanting cruises on the Regent’s Canal.

Tours from Little Venice to Camden are available to book. The boat will hold a small party of four. Champagne and food is provided during the trip. Musicians are available at extra cost to complement the romantic setting as the boat glides along the Regent’s.
I am happy to write about businesses on the canals or anywhere else in London, such as shops, parks, art galleries, buskers – many of my posts do cover these. These posts are simply articles written as a matter of pure of interest and I receive absolutely no money plus there is no affiliation of any sort with any of these businesses.
