Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your journey along the Thames River begins in the evening at Westminster Pier where you board the ship. Stroll the open-air deck and help yourself to delicious canapés as you embark on a leisurely float along London’s famous waterway. Then find a seat in the indoor saloon, enjoy live jazz music and admire unobstructed views of passing city landmarks at sunset.

Heading first past Westminster, get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben, followed by the illuminated London Eye and Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a gorgeous Elizabethan playhouse that still runs regular performances. Sip on bubbly wine as your boat cruises under London Bridge and past the Tower of London and the monolithic Shard building—London’s tallest building at 1,016 feet (310 meters) in height.

The final leg of your cruise takes you by Canary Wharf and the HMS Belfast which is now the Royal Naval Museum. From here, your boat makes its way back to Westminster Pier, where you disembark with plenty of time for dinner or evening activities.

Was easy to book/find and well organised. A big age range but no kids. Entertainment was live not recorded as we'd read and was a good performer who covered a range of styles. Canape style food tasty. Plenty of photo opportunities. Bar prices a bit high and online ordering seemed to be unavailable. Our cruise may have been under capacity as were able to change seats and decks easily according to sun/breeze/entertainment

Misleading information

Unfortunately we went by the booking website and were mislead to believe the cruise left from Westminster pier..when it actually left from Tower pier so although darting to the correct pier and arriving at 633pm we saw it had gone, and it did not return to tower pier..so god knows where it went back to.
