Christmas 2014


Inspired by the fun of the 1814 frost fair when the Thames froze solidly for four days, Woods’ Silver Fleet is hosting a fair of its own on the river this winter.

Let us take you back 200 years to celebrate the magic of the frost fair spirit with a contemporary twist. We have menus laden with roasted meats, pies, oysters, ice shard cocktails, roaring limestone fireplaces & fabulous entertainment by Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts trained singers. Expect hand-chiseled ice sculptures crafted by Ice Box & extraordinary fireplaces by Chesneys surrounding luxe ‘Victoriana’ dining tables laid with touches of cut crystal glassware & hand-made crackers. Faux fur cushions & throws will keep you snug as you sit & delight at the panorama of London’s night skyline from our teak top deck
