Thank you Yiannis, we now consider Lady Lena to be a truly international boat due to all the different nationalities that we have welcomed aboard over the years. Also thank you for your comments about the prosecco.

Thank you for taking time to write a review, the fact that we don`t actually ask guests to leave a review makes it more special.

Hi Chelsey-E., sorry I have only just seen your question. 10 is the max on lady Lena, we do have another boat , "the Sir John Knill" that will seat 12.

Sorry for the delay in getting back, have only just spotted this. The cream teas are £5.50 at the moment but due to go up to £6.00 at the beginning of April. Bookings made before this date honour the old price.
