City Cruises is bringing flower power to the River Thames this spring with the new and exclusive Floating Gardens of Westminster. In partnership with award-winning florist Amie Bone, the sailing will see a cool and contemporary cruise collide with a quintessentially British garden, offering tourists and Londoners alike the best garden party in the city.
Blossoming in May this year to coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show between 23rd – 27th May 2017, the fresh, flower-clad vessel will see a City Cruises sightseeing boat transformed into a fragrant paradise. Hundreds of thousands of fresh roses will adorn the ships exterior and turf will be laid on the inner and outer gardens, creating a typical English countryside garden and a completely unique experience on the River Thames.
The top deck will burst into bloom with a rose-lined pathway and a three-tier water feature centrepiece, creating the gardens coolest hotspot with unparalleled views of London’s skyline. Designed by Amie Bone, who has dressed glitzy London hotels including The Corinthia and the Shangri-La Hotel in The Shard with her fabulous floral expertise, the ship is the first of its kind to sail along the Thames and is the ultimate springtime day out.
While on-board guests can indulge themselves with unlimited bubbles and delicious canapes and a DJ will bring the party to life with a live set. Passengers will take away a goody bag full of floral treats, complete with a plantable ticket to bring the Floating Gardens of Westminster to life at home.
