The SolarShuttle

The SolarShuttle is a magnificent vessel which glides silently across the water powered only by the sun carrying up to 40 passengers.

Relax with friends and family or clients as you enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Hyde Park from the water.

The SolarShuttle has two extra Ship’s Wheels so that children can enjoy trying their hand at being a Captain for the trip.

The SolarShuttle travels between the Diana, Princess Of Wales Memorial Fountain, which is on the south side of the Serpentine and where there is a car-park, to the new Boat House on the northern edge of the lake near the newly-refurbished Dell restaurant. With its sound-system, lighting and twilight cruise capability, groups, parties and special event bookings are most welcome on board. Please call for more information.

Daily Cruises operate at weekends, school and public holidays between March and the end of September and full-time during June, July and August from 1200 hours. The service runs approximately every half-hour until dusk.

The SolarShuttle, boat hire and visitor centre are operated by Bluebird Boats on behalf of The Royal Parks.
