Through North London and along the historic Regent’s Canal…this high-end, floating affair is no booze cruise.

…Quite the opposite, to catch site of the London Shell Co’s canal-cruise is to glimpse a warm, intimate dining experience.

There is Such a Thing as a Cute London Dinner Cruise

London Shell Co

In 2015, siblings Harry and Leah Lobek established the London Shell Co. aboard the Prince Regent, a 2.5 hour dinner cruise that noodles past the London Zoo, Regents Park and explores the Maida Hill Tunnel. Stuart Kilpatrick heads up the galley with British and European classics. The menu varies on a daily basis, using only the finest ingredients. To compliment the food, Harry regularly adjusts the wine list, which focuses on old world wines and underappreciated regions.
