where to go now: Goboat London

Despite today’s snow – the spring weather will shortly be upon us and Londoners can rejoice as GoBoat has reopened! You and a group of friends (up to six friends, following government guidelines and social distancing rules) can enjoy a relaxing trip up and down the Thames with a picnic.

You can choose between two routes – either from Paddington or Kingston and if you want to go for 1, 2 or 3 hours.

GoBoat London Paddington:

Your journey begins at Merchant Square, head east on the vibrant Regent’s Canal through Little Venice, the 249 metre Maida Hill Tunnel, Regent’s Park and London Zoo to Camden Lock.

GoBoat Kingston:

From our Riverside Walk mooring next to Kington Road Bridge, you can charter your own electric picnic boat up river past Hampton Court Palace to Molesey Lock, and down river to Teddington Lock.

Bookings for GoBoat are open now and you can once again charter an electric picnic boat without the need for a licence. Both GoBoat London (Paddington) and GoBoat Kingston sites will open from Monday, bookings available now.

Some changes have been made to ensure things are kept safe and within government guidelines:


Six people may charter a GoBoat from GoBoat London (Paddington) and GoBoat Kingston

  • Every GoBoat is sanitized in-between each trip
  • Contactless payment only, booking ahead online is advised
  • New safe-distanced queuing system to keep guests apart
  • Contact-free check-in at the kiosk


From the 17th May, GoBoat will be taking bookings for:

  • Up to six people per boat (guests must maintain social distancing guidelines throughout the experience)
  • From 18th May, GoBoat can take up to 8 people per boat (no restrictions)
  • Please be aware that future government guidelines may affect your booking. Remember to arrive at least 15 mins before the sail-out time.
