Woods’ Silver Fleet has been cruising on the Thames for over 7O years, welcoming aboard guests such as Prince Charles, Rihanna, Sir Mick Jagger, Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Brigitte Bardot and Justin Timberlake.

Their events yachts Silver Sturgeon, Silver Barracuda and Silver Darling now have a new, sleek home named Woods Quay which, after 20 years in planning and build, quietly sailed into place during London’s lockdown. Now fully completed and opening on 14th August.

“Our new spaces at Woods Quay offer wonderful flexibility for small groups wanting an intimate dinner party with a river tour aboard 15m Silver Darling, through to a large Covid Secure seated dining when also chartering the 61m Silver Sturgeon.” enthused Head of Sales, Sarah Bere.

Featuring a Michelin standard Tasting Room and a spectacular bar, all framing the view of Westminster at water level, and 140m of private river moorings (the longest in central London). The quay is located directly in front of the Savoy Hotel’s river entrance, a few steps from Covent Garden and on the quiet, leafy Victoria Embankment. Woods Quay also overlooks one of London’s most famous views of Westminster, once painted by Monet.

William Woods, Director, said “We are ready to emerge from lockdown with Woods Quay, a very private London ‘island’ for our guests to await their chosen Silver Fleet vessel, host a company meetup, celebrate a birthday, taste a future menu or lounge for a post event cigar.

Covid Security has been smoothly implemented within our usual high level cleaning and maintenance schedules and we are fit and ready to host events on our spacious decks.”

Woods Quay’s tasting room is overseen (in tandem with the renowned Silver Sturgeon river yacht) by Head Chef, Doug Gaunt, who also partners Michelin-starred Ollie Dabbous of Mayfair’s HIDE restaurant to create seasonal Modern British menus inspired by UK coastal waters and pastures. The sleek open tasting kitchen for guests to view the chef’s at work is fully equipped with Electrolux Grand Cuisine appliances.

Woods Quay & Woods’ Silver Fleet are powered by ‘Bulb’ 100% renewable energy.
