This exclusive four-acre island, which is only reachable by private ferry, offers an extremely intimate environment on the River Thames for corporate dragon boat events and other team building activities and we host several client events here each year. The vast amount of space available on the island makes it perfect for company away days incorporating dragon boat racing for up to 250 people.
