A look back at September 2020

This month I have enjoyed numerous products to enjoy at home and even managed to pop into London this month to dine and enjoy an experience a chilled self drive along the canals of London. All opportunities given to me and community members are all on a complimentary PR basis.

GoBoat London

GoBoat London is situated in Paddington and Kingston and provides self-drive boat down the canals. The boats are powered by electric engines so no rowing required. Each GoBoat can carry up to eight people. All boats have a long table so you can enjoy a picnic on-board whilst sailing down the canals of London creating a very fun and sociable atmosphere. There boats serve as a breathing space in the city away from the hustle and bustle of busy London.  GoBoat is certainly the perfect experience for any social occasion.


“No boating experience is necessary as training will be given upon arrival and you’ll be given a route map.”
