Frederick was just right for our trip up the canal, heated inside which was great. The barge was big enough for us all. Katherine was very helpful from start to finish and the buffet was excellent catered for everyone including vegan! The cake was magical and worth getting via Katherine. Nothing was too much trouble, the bar on board was very reasonable, I would definitely use Central Boat Parties again and would highly recommend them.

I am 60 in September 3 other colleagues are also 60 this year so it was decided we would arrange an office barge trip on Birmingham's famous canals. Despite the pouring rain we had a great time. There was about twenty of us and it didn't feel crowded, there was a full bar on board which we all took advantage of and prices were very reasonable, nice coloured lights decorated the barge adding to the party feel. The price for the 2 hour trip was very good at just £10 each. I would recommend the trip to anyone who is planning a party.

Celebrated my 40th on the Victoria yesterday best birthday to date! Everyone loved it. Katherine helped me to set up and my guests stated how friendly and approachable she was.Katherine always responded to my emails and answered any questions i had.Drinks were resonably priced and the flexiblity of bringing your own nibbles was great... but would also recommend using Katherines catering to save time and cleanning up to give yourself more time to enjoy the sights! I would recommend Central boats for something different and would definately use them again.
