There are several facts in life. Amongst them: Londoners love boats and Londoners love barbecues. Thinking about it, it was only ever a matter of time before someone put the two together and created London’s first BBQ Boats.
We took to the waters in Canary Wharf to try out the concept last weekend and… spoiler alert, it was a whole load of fun.
Here’s a sneak preview of what we got up to
Skuna BBQ Boats Canary Wharf
Skuna launched the new boats in Canary Wharf earlier in the summer and they’re running until October so there’s still just about time to squeeze it in.
Simply make a booking (the boat can hold up to 9 guests), head down to West India Quay in Canary Wharf and hop aboard.
What You Need to Know Before You Book the Barbecue Boat
You bring your own food, but there’s a fully-stocked bar for buying any drinks you’ll need. Once aboard, the boat has everything you need to create a sizzlin’ barbecue as you float between the high-rises in your vessel.
The barbecue (gas of course, ain’t nobody trying to suffocate from charcoal fumes, plus, health and safety) is easy to use and, when you’re finished, simply switch it off and float around the quay at your leisure.
The booking is for 100 minutes and can be rescheduled if the weather looks like it’s going to be a washout – this is London after all.
