If you have been looking for a unique Christmas venue for hire in London, then look no further than the HMS President. This is an amazing ship that was once owned by the Royal Navy Military Reserve. This ship has the capacity to entertain several hundred people at one time, and you even have the option of remaining anchored at the dock in the Thames River or cruising on a pre-determined course.
What do you get when you hire the HMS President as the London venue for your Christmas event? You get total exclusivity, including the upper deck Ballroom and Gunroom. The Ballroom is the ideal setting for a formal dinner or fantastic party. It offers 2500 square feet without any columns to break up the sightlines of the space. It is one of the most versatile and unusual spaces available on the Thames. There are floor to ceiling windows that face the south and provide a view over the Thames River with the best view from sunrise to sunset.
You also get the exclusive hire of the Gunroom, which is just adjacent to the Ballroom. In the Gunroom, you will find a full service bar that can service as many as 350 guests with ease. The Gun Room features luxury leather tub chairs where people can relax and take in the breathtaking scenery.
If you are planning to take advantage of the HMS President’s unique Christmas venue in London, then you will also be treated to a three-course seated dinner and coffee with mince pies. There is the option of a five hour unlimited drinks package, which includes a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, house wine, beer, and soft drinks. Guests can also enjoy exclusive access to the outside deck of the ship and enjoy the enchanting and elegant winter wonderland décor. There are also beautiful fresh flowers in every reception area of the ship.
Many people do not look forward to planning a Christmas party, but HMS President has her own dedicated event manager who can help you to make your own party a success. The ship has a discreet and professional security team that can ensure the privacy of your party and your guests once you get your party into full swing. A fully attended and complementary cloakroom is provided so you will not have to worry about the safety of your belongings.
The HMS President also has butler and waiter service, as well as a highly trained chef and catering staff. The ship has recently been painted by a leading German artist Tobias Rehberger, who has covered it in what is known as dazzle camouflage. This type of painting was used to camouflage a ship in the First World War to make it difficult for an enemy to target it accurately. The dazzle effect is achieved by painting a ship with contrasting curves and stripes to break up its outline and shape.
The HMS President is one of the most interesting places to invite your guests to for a Christmas party this year. Contact the event manager at HMS President today to arrange this Christmas venue hire in London!
