The barge has been such an iconic part of this view but the time has come for her to get a new lease of life.
“The barge is to be restored and put to good use”
The Swan reported it was seeking new owners for the vessel, which will require considerable work to restore it to its original condition.
The hotel, situated along the River Thames, previously used the barge as a wedding venue, but says it is now in desperate need of restoration which it is unable to provide.
“Thank you to everyone that popped down today to say farewell to the barge.
Her new owners will be bringing her back to her former glory and creating an education centre within the space.
Thank you so much for sharing your memories with us, we’ve loved hearing them”
