This event was amazing in April, and might even be one of the best events of the year!

Who says learning can’t be fun and social?

Our floating classroom will explore wine and make new London discoveries along the way.

It’s New World Camden vs Old World Little Venice – who will sink and who will swim?

This is one boat you don’t want to miss.

About the Venue:

The Grand Canal is an extensive network stretching over 130 miles. The section between Little Venice and Camden is one of the most scenic and historic. The floating classroom is a charitable vessel. Weather permitting, you can soak up the natural beauty of grassy banks and historic boats from the outside viewing deck.

What’s included?:

3 hour boat ride with a welcome glass of bubbles, guided wine tasting of premium wine, cheese & generous canapés/light dinner, booking fee, PayPal fee, exclusive boat hire (£20 per person), donation to local schools


*Tickets must be purchased in advance, only 30 tickets available.

Attending on your own?  Don’t be nervous.  Most attendees will be on their own and our events are designed to make you feel like your one of the regulars as soon as you arrive.

Time: 1:30-4:30pm

Welcome drinks and canapes from 1:00-1:30.  The floating classroom will depart at 1:30 and return at 4:30. Optional drinks at a nearby venue will be arranged for after the event.

Feedback from the last wine tasting:

“ Really great night, I was going initially going to learn about wine, but the social aspect was a real bonus. Kelly was a fantastic host and I look forward to attending more of her events. ”

“ Kelly is incredibly organized, and plans great events. She brings together fun and interesting people for a high quality evening. And she is a wonderful hostess, making everyone feel welcome and keeping us entertained! I also learned a thing or 2 about wine! ”

“ I've been to other introduction wine tastings over the years, but I found this one more structured and I learned some new things about wine tasting. ”

“ It was a fun evening and great way to socialise and learn at the same time ! ”

“ Very nice! Good wines & interesting people! Look forward to the next one! Thanks Kelly! ”

“ Organization was very good, atmosphere was lively, wine was tasty, and people were friendly. ”
