The stunning Bridge room with its enormous windows overlooking the water is an inspiring and peaceful setting to hold any meeting or workshop.

  • Floating Harbour is a lovely space. The staff also are super helpful. Our company has been there a few times now for meetings and it's always productive.

  • The Floating Harbour Venue is a truly fantastic venue. The Creative Group at Robert Half used the venue to hold a marketing networking event and it provided the perfect atmosphere and space for a great evening. The staff were super friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for an alternative and welcoming space.

  • Cracking space to work in for the day to get out of the office - Highly recommend it as a space for working, meeting, training etc with a great view.

  • I held a Celebration and Evaluation day (meeting) for about 16 people here last week and it was such a great and different place for a meeting.

    Light and airy and a great environment for being creative and letting ideas flow. The 'bridge' holds up to 20 so is great for smaller groups and we also had smaller sessions where we split into 3 groups to write down ideas and there was plenty of room for this. Presenting is easy as there's a easy to use wireless screen. We didn't use the hold but it's bigger and darker so perfect for screenings or more of a presentation-style meeting. You can also use the outside where there are tables: we took our lunch out there.

    The owners are lovely people and what I also liked about it is that they let you get on with things, so you really feel like it's your space for the day. However, they are just in their office next to the hold room so can easily be found with any queries. We will definitely be back!

  • Really excellent location particularly for Covid friendly as the meeting room is on the top of the boat with lots of doors and windows to open. Really hand for supermarkets, food, coffee, etc. Projector facilities, internet, etc. Parking for 1 car but parking nearby. Toilets are a bit "quirky" but superb. Used it for a meeting room for 12 and perfect.

  • Excellent venue for a corporate team meeting / away day. Expertly looked after by the team at Floating Harbour. Great facilities, plenty of plug sockets screens, and even an Amazon Echo for background music! The catering was spot on, a good supply of hot drinks, and lunch was excellent. We will be back. Thank you!

  • We held our two-day Management Away Days on the boat. The hosts were wonderful. The venue is light and airy. Would definitely recommend it.
