Steam Yacht Gondola

Gondola is a wonderfully romantic venue for a wedding reception.

As Gondola is a boat, legally we are unable to hold wedding ceremonies but we can organise wedding receptions. We work closely with Brantwood where ceremonies can take place. Gondola can embark passengers at Brantwood either prior or following the ceremony for canapes and champagne.

The interior of the boat is divided into two saloons reflecting Victorian trains from the Furness Railway - a first class saloon with its luxuriously upholstered seating and ornate ceiling and a 'third' class saloon with a rich mahogany ceiling and leather upholstery. 'Gondola' has a luxurious ambience recreating the atmosphere of a bygone era.

Seating capacity
'Gondola' has inside seating capacity for 40 and carry a total number of 86 passengers. When catering is provided, the maximum number of passengers recommended is 50.
The central seating in the saloons can be turned into tables for catering - the seating is fixed 'bench' seating around the perimeter of the saloons.

Individual requirements
We recognise that every wedding is different. We are very happy to discuss your requirements, so please get in touch on 015394 32733 or email us and we will see what we can do for you.
