London Party Boats Ltd has an excellent safety and sanitation record and have always operated and maintained a rigorous process around cleanliness and hygiene. Our crew are working to ensure that they meet the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning protocols. We are taking specific steps to include proper and frequent hand washing/sanitising, thorough disinfection of food preparation surfaces before and after each event, alongside regular sanitisation of our vessels before and after service. In addition to these measures, we have increased the frequency and focus of our cleaning procedures, with focus on high-touch areas like handrails and doorknobs, and other surfaces.
