Local Love: The Electric Barge
You know we love paddleboarding it, but we’re sending out some local love by highlighting some other great ways to enjoy Regent’s Canal
Lockdown has been hard on all of us and, like us, many of our canal friends have fairly seasonal businesses which have had to adapt to try to extend our season. Since the great outdoors is still a green zone in our current Tier 2 status, we’d like to suggest some options for spending time along our gorgeous Regent’s Canal and having a grand time while doing so. Over the next few weeks we’ll feature some of our water-based friends and this week we’ve got the lovely Electric Barge.
Every Saturday and Sunday in November they will be offering their signature Bubbly Brunch – a scenic tour of the canal, boxed brunch selection and 90 minutes of bottomless fizz. Launching at 11.30 from Sheldon Square near Paddington Station, you can choose the standard box brunch with smoked salmon bagel, croissants, yoghurt, banana bread and fresh fruit alongside mini Dutch pancakes or choose one of their veggie, vegan or even gluten free options.
The Electric Barge have done a brilliant job in ensuring that the barge is Covid safe including enhanced cleaning, social distancing, table service and cashless payments, so you can rest easy while enjoying your tour.
Did you know that The Electric Barge is also a social enterprise? Established in 2016 by the charity the Beauchamp Lodge Settlement, all proceeds raised on board fund their charitable efforts the Floating Classroom – providing fantastic learning experiences for local children and young people on and around Regent’s Canal. Since its launch they’ve welcomed over 40,000 primary school children on board to teach them more about the history, heritage and ecology of London’s waterways.
Book your bottomless brunch today – support a small business by having a great time.
