London Thames River Evening Cruise

A River Thames cruise is a quintessentially London activity—and, in high season, it definitely pays to book ahead. Reserve in advance for this stylish evening cruise where you can savor sparkling wine and canapés as you travel past iconic sights like the Tower of London, Big Ben, and the London Eye to maritime Greenwich—and back.

What to Expect

Board your boat at Westminster Pier and explore the open-air deck or indoor saloon as your cruise heads past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Enjoy a glass of wine and elegant canapés as you glide past the London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Gherkin, the Tower of London and the 1,016-foot (310-meter) Shard.

You may want to purchase a drink from the onboard licensed bar as your tour continues east to Greenwich Pier, passing Canary Wharf and the sights of maritime Greenwich, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Finally, cruise back to Westminster Pier with plenty of time to hit the town or go for dinner.

Great, apart from one important detail

My experience was very good. The weather was perfect and the singer that performs in the boat was very nice and had a great repertoire. The only problem (and it was a big one) was the food. I was very clear when I booked that...More

Nice enough but overpriced

We enjoyed it overall but the 29 quid is a bit steep for what you get: --nice views of London from the Thames --upbeat live music (soft rock, jazzy pop) --a glass of sparkling wine --generous (cold, dry) canapes BEWARE: there is no tour guide...More
