Spirit of Chartwell

The Spirit of Chartwell boasts the sumptuousness of a classic luxury yacht. Designed to evoke the timeless grandeur of the 1929 Côte d'Azur Pullman railway carriage, the deluxe river vessel has been built to the very highest standard.

1929 'Riviera' Côte d'Azur Armchairs
Only 612 of these famous dining armchairs were actually ever made, with only a small number still surviving to this day. 33 of them can be found on board the Spirit of Chartwell, beautifully restored and re-upholstered.

Large panoramic windows provide unspoilt views of London, while rich hardwood finishing, glittering table settings and the finest attention to detail create a fabulous environment on board. Impeccable service, fine dining and a relaxed but elegant atmosphere create a unique sense of occasion for this unforgettable journey in the heart of our capital city.

This luxurious river ship's facilities include an elegant lounge, a relaxing bar and spacious open air viewing areas - perfect for taking in the sights and sounds of the River Thames at a leisurely pace. On board there is also an internet centre and complimentary hot beverage station.

Dining in the George Bradshaw Restaurant
Dining on board is an experience in itself and a real highlight of your time on board the Spirit of Chartwell. We dine in the stunning George Bradshaw Restaurant (named after the man who gave us the first railway timetable), where meals are accompanied by uninterrupted views through panoramic windows.

Superb meals are freshly-prepared by the on board chefs who make use of local produce throughout the voyage. A full English breakfast is served each morning, buffet-style or from the galley, with eggs individually prepared to your particular choice.

Lunch is usually served in the George Bradshaw restaurant, although when the weather is particularly kind, you will have the chance to dine on the London Observation Deck above. Lunch is three courses, with a choice of main dishes and a vegetarian option.

Each day concludes with a four or five-course Gala Dinner served in the George Bradshaw Restaurant and is often accompanied by music from the adjoining Somerset Maugham Piano Bar. Your seat for dinner is at the Commodore Table, located in the centre of the George Bradshaw restaurant, with six guests per table. You have the option to upgrade your seat to a Category B seat at a Riviera table for four, or to a Category C seat at a Riviera table for two. Riviera tables are located beside the panoramic windows for enhanced views as you dine.

Your State Cabin
Every cabin on board the Spirit of Chartwell  provides the perfect haven of calm and tranquility, beautifully presented with rich cream and mahogany finishes. Designed to the last detail, your cabin comes complete with classic fabrics and fully restored antique details such as original Navy ships' badges and reading lamps taken from the SS France and Olympia.

Cabins have individually controlled air conditioning and heating systems, and all have outside facing windows. Cabins come with twin Hypnos beds (double beds on the Upper Deck), and every cabin enjoys en suite bathroom facilities with walk-in showers, television, music system, hairdryer, trouser press and safe.
