THE ULTIMATE PRIVATE
HIRE ON THE THAMES
We are delighted to introduce you to The Greenwich Yacht Club. GYC is London’s hidden riverside gem located next to the O2. The Club has 2 stunning event spaces available for hire throughout the year for 20 to 200 guests making it the perfect venue for weddings, private events, parties, meetings and conferences.
ABOUT THE GREENWICH YACHT CLUB
Founded in 1908 Greenwich Yacht Club only arrived at its new home on Peartree Wharf in 1999.
The club now has its own pontoon which can take large boats to and from the city and 2 venues suitable for a wide variety of events.
Whilst it remains primarily a sailing club, the clubs activities have diversified into rowing, cycling and art!
Over the past 10 years, the clubs events have been run by The Willo Project’s team and have hosted many weddings, celebrations and conferences not to mention open-air cinemas, concerts and whiskey launches.
Nestled between the O2 Arena and the incredible Thames barrier on a wide stretch of the Thames the views are at times breathtaking and it is hard to imagine that you are so close to the centre of London.
The GYC is a friendly place managed by a professional team with a great track record in hosting events. Please have a look at our brochures if you interested in having an event here or contact us to come and have a look at the venues for yourself.
THE CLUB HOUSE
Without doubt the most striking of our 2 venues it appears to be a 2 story building sitting on stilts in the middle of the river. Accessible by bridge (or Boat) with floor to ceiling windows the panoramic views are something to behold.
THE RIVER ROOMS
A stand-alone event venue, the river rooms with its large windows has 2 rooms and a large outdoor decking. Guests enter onto the decking, which overlooks the river and the boatyard and is a great place to have your reception drinks in the afternoon sun.
