Originally built in 1892, this traditional English side wheeler offers elegance and versatility unrivalled on the upper Thames. The luxury lower saloon is furnished with padded seating and wooden topped tables.
Weather permitting, there are steps leading out to the open foredeck. Alternatively there are spiral staircases either side leading to the upper deck and the bar.
The large open foredeck provides a great location for guests to gather and admire the Thames. The area is also suitable for a BBQ in the summer months.
The Yarmouth Belle can accommodate up to 125 guests or up to 32 for a sit-down dinner.
The charges for daytime boat cruises are based on a Kingston start and finish.
All boat hire is exempt from VAT. Pier fees apply and are subject to VAT at the current rate when the pick up point is not a Turks pier (we own the piers in Kingston, Richmond and Hampton Court).

An additional security deposit is payable and is held against breakages and damages until after the event when it is reissued in a cheque assuming it is not needed for the aforementioned.

Charity Event, August 2012, L Chapman
“I am writing to convey my thanks to all the staff who were involved in making the trip so pleasant for all our members. I appreciate that it must have been difficult to have so many old and infirm people on the boat but your staff were absolutely charming and helpful.I am particularly grateful to the crew who helped assist one of the members in a wheelchair, as her disability is as such that she is unable to move her legs when moving her. My thanks are also extended to the staff in the office who were infinitely patient with us all as we were trying to get the logistics right. I would certainly recommend Turk’s to any of the charities I come into contact with and hope to use you again next summer.”
