About The Yacht London


Now moored in Central London, leisure ship The Yacht London has had a long and colourful life. Born over 90 years ago as a survey steam vessel, it was fitted with guns and manned by the Navy during the Second World War. In 1946 it was given a luxury refit and new calling as a VIP cruise ship, entertaining such heads of state as King Faisal of Saudi Arabia and Winston Churchill, who smoked one of his cigars on the top deck. In 2008 it was restored to its former glories in a £1 million project as a floating events venue. Located a short distance from the Houses of Parliament with sweeping views of Southbank, the ship has four main areas over three decks including a top deck terrace and roof garden, Art Deco cocktail lounge and restaurant. Holding a 3 a.m. events license, all decks can be hired out for parties of up to 250 guests.

Choose Between Two Options

Starters may include: Pate de Campagne | butternut squash soup | oven-baked king scallops | heritage tomato and quinoa salad | classic Cornish fish stew
Mains may include: confit duck leg | slow-cooked belly pork in garlic and thyme | classic Mediterranean ratatouille risotto | oven-roasted hake fillet

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs taken on their wedding day.
The pictures, taken by Alexi Lubomirski, include a group photograph with bridesmaids and close family, including their parents and the Queen.
The couple would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations on Saturday, Kensington Palace said.
"Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits," a statement added.

Mr Lubomirski, who also took the couple's official engagement pictures, said it had been an "incredible honour" to document the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's "inspiring journey of love".
"This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget," he said.
Thousands of well-wishers gathered in Windsor as Prince Harry wed Meghan in St George's Chapel on Saturday afternoon.
More than 110,000 people filled the town's streets with about 67,000 train trips made in and out of Windsor's two stations on Saturday, according to the council.
Meanwhile, an average of 11 million viewers watched on BBC or ITV at any one time.

Mr Lubomirski is normally found shooting for fashion magazines like Vogue and Harpers Bazaar and can count celebrities including Beyoncé, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson among his subjects.
According to his website, in 2014 he published a book called 'Princely advice for a happy life', written for his sons, about behaving like a 21st Century prince.

Meghan's pure white, boat neck gown was designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of French fashion house Givenchy.
A five metre-long white silk veil - which covered her face as she entered the chapel - included embroidered floral detail representing all 53 countries of the Commonwealth.
This was kept in place by Queen Mary's diamond encrusted bandeau tiara, loaned to her by the Queen.
As a member of the royal family, Meghan now has an official profile on the Royal Family website, which details her work for a number of charitable causes.
"I am proud to be a woman and a feminist," the Duchess of Sussex, said on the site.
