Our new tug boat at West India Quay at Canary Wharf needs a name and we want you to name it!
Londoners have gone crazy for floating hot tubs. Just a year after launching, HotTug UK is very excited to announce the opening this summer of a second location and permanent home, in West India Quay/ Canary Wharf on the 1st of August.
This second location will give HotTuggers an incredible experience as they cruise through the docks in a hot tub boat filled with fresh, hot water whilst watching the hustle and bustle of Canary Wharf surrounded by the spectacular skyscrapers. The site will be open throughout the year.
“I am so happy that Londoners love the HotTug and we are delighted to be making West India Quay our permanent home. It has been an amazing first year for us with our weekends booked out months in advance and incredible reviews that already have us ahead of major attractions such as the London Eye and London Zoo on Tripadvisor. It is such a testament to the small but great team we have here at HotTug UK”- Tommo Stuart Thomson - Founder HotTugUK
Bookings are now open!

HotTug is lucky enough to be in the canals of the beautiful Angel & Islington and all the amazing restaurants, pubs and cafes in the surrounding area for a post-trip meal. Here are a few of the many great establishments that are tucked in and around the streets surrounding the Islington Boat Club.
On your trip you would of passed this iconic pub on the canal with a seating area that overlooks the water. Not only does this pub have a great view but a great atmosphere with friendly staff and good food too! The truffle fries are a particular favourite of the HotTug staff. Make sure you book your table in advance so you secure one of the tables at the front for prime views and waving at fellow HotTuggers.
119 St Peter’s Street, London, N1 8PZ
This spot is directly in front of the first turn right on the route. A great cafe for your breakfast and lunch or just a coffee and a pastry to continue the good times after your trip. This cafe is also situated in one of the most spacious spots along the canal walk way so if you can't grab a table then a spot down on the canal edge is just as great.
79 Noel Road | On The Tow Path, London N1 8HE
Looking for some fine cuisine within 5 minutes of the boat club? Well Sardine is the spot for that! It was recently voted 85th in that National Restaurant Awards and is host to many, many raving reviews. Enjoy the cooking of Southern France in this upmarket but neighbourly restaurant that is tucked away in the back streets of Angel & Islington.
15 Micawber Street, London, N1 7TB
This is Britains first and only organic pub that has teamed up with Riverford, the family-run organic farm based in Devon. Using the most fresh produce, the light and airy pub is definitely on another level to the traditional boozers. With a menu that changes with the seasons, diners are in for a treat.
30 St Peter's Street, Islington, London N1

Did you get fooled by our April Fool's post?
Sorry to get all our NYC fans excited but we haven't made the cross Atlantic voyage in the HotTug just yet but stay tuned as we have an exciting announcement about our second London site soon!
Sick of the Baltic conditions of the North Pole, Santa traded in his old sleigh for a hot and steamy upgrade – a floating Hot tub aka the HotTug. Taking it for a spin with Mrs Claus and his cheeky elves they floated up through King’s Cross and along the Regents Canal in Central London, handing out early Christmas presents to Londoners who have been well behaved this year.
Bookings are open and slots are filling up fast. You can view our latest availability for London's most unique experience, HotTug UK online.
Remember, The HotTug is a great experience come rain or shine. Every trip uses fresh water.
