Disabled Policy

Although the boats were purpose built for passenger use on the River Thames, the design and facilities of these historic boats does not favour modern disabled requirements.

All of the vessels are restricted in terms of disabled access, and it is not possible to board a motorised wheelchair.

A lightweight non -motorised chair may be boarded if the wheelchair user is able to leave the chair and step on board with assistance of the crew. The chair can then be lifted on board to allow use on board. The crew are more than happy to move seating to allow the wheelchair user the preferred seating location.

Access to toilet facilities varies from vessel to vessel, but in all cases is not accessible to wheelchairs, and requires mobility for use.

Access to lower and upper decks is not possible for wheelchairs, as varying levels of steps access these decks.

Crews on all boats will always do their utmost to facilitate the needs and requirement of any passengers that require extra assistance in any way
