This activity will end right where it started.
Your luncheon cruise sets off from Tower Pier in central London at midday. Make your own way to the pier with plenty of time to board the boat and find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city shoreline as your cruise begins.

Heading west from Tower Pier, first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard—the 95-story pyramid dominates the South Bank skyline. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic active theater, and the enormous London Eye. Along the South Bank, witness the bustle of performers, locals, and meandering tourists. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before turning around.

As you cruise, indulge in a sumptuous 2-course meal featuring an entree and dessert with coffee and tea. For an added treat, purchase wine, beer, or other non-alcoholic beverages from the onboard bar. After lunch, get some air on the outside deck as your river cruise returns to Tower Pier. Arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!

I booked this cruise for my daughter's 50th and it made her birthday an occasion to remember. The booking procedure was easy although I had to change the date a couple of times. The cruises were being booked up as I was trying to book which was a good sign! The service we got from the moment we arrived at the boarding gate until we left, was friendly, full of fun and highly professional. The meal was delicious and we enjoyed the commentary on the history of the river and buildings. There were 8 in our party and we all had a good time and felt it was well worth the money. Thank you.

The embarkation was seamless and very we’ll humoured. Table were ordered and fresh bread eating. The meal was delicious and served quickly and with very pleasant staff. After dinner a member of staff gave us a commentary on the sites. A trip upstairs gave opportunities for wonderful photographs . All in a truly splendid event.

Good experience and good value!! Suggestion - we would have had two glasses of wine but we didn’t get a server for 40 minutes and when we went to the bar they said they would send someone to us but we had to flag somebody down

The food was really good we were speechless, we it was under 50 pounds a head, we sort of assumed airplane food, as we really just wanted to be on the river. The deck upstairs is perfect for after the lunch. All was so calm, service fast and discreet... all just easy and it's just a wonderful feeling perfectly organised. The guide was funny and enthousiastic. What more can you ask for? Best two hours on the day. Very easy to find after you get out at Towel Hill tube.

Enjoyed a lovely family Thames Cruise. All the staff were very attentive and on the whole professional - they even managed to cater very quickly to a change in menu requirements - very impressed. The food was generally good, the veg was a little undercooked and hard for my liking and the chicken breast was a little dry - but then that's chicken breast for you. Everything else was lovely. Only let down by the toilets - broken doors, lack of toilet paper and in need of a little TLC. Commentary was good, funny and informative.

Very enjoyable. A nice relaxing way to spend the afternoon. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. I asked for Ice Tea which is my drink and the waitress said that she didn’t have it but could make some. I told her that it was ok that I would just have a diet pop. She went out of her way to make one just for me. It could not have been better.

A Wonderful Trip and Delicious Food
Karen_M

A beautiful day out for my daughter and I. Great weather, great food, great scenery. The meal was a set menu of supreme chicken, green beans, courgettes, carrots and potatoe gratin followed by a chocolate mousse and tea/coffee. There was time to go up to the top deck and see the sites; accompanied by a humerous running commentary highlighting the most important landmarks. The staff were friendly, polite, helpful and efficient. Highly recommended.
