What You Can Expect

Thames Lunch Cruise with 2-Course Meal

Enjoy seeing the attractions of London while cruising down the Thames River

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 1.5-hour cruise begins.

Heading west from Tower Pier, you’ll first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard. Also, know at The Shard of Glass, this 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’ll 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. You'll arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!

Great food and a lovely cruise. A different way to experience London. Great photo opportunities on this 2 hour cruise. We really enjoyed it.

My only suggestion, soft music with the meal versus listening to the clanking of people's dishes or other tables conversations since seated so close.

My favorite Parisian tour. Great food, lovely cruise and a definite highlight for us

The best, however, more clarification on where this pier is. Our taxi driver took us to one pier and when he said down under we didn't realize that we had to take the tube to another pier. We literally had to run and if you were not able to you would have missed the boat. Got there with only a few minutes to spare. BUT the meal, the service, the servers and the views were great. Highly recommend.

We did this tour last Saturday. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Lovely lunch, very good service and it was lovely to see London from the river. We were lucky with the weather too - bright and sunny albeit cold, but the inside of the boat is very comfortable and warm. Good value for money too.

Having read previous reviews saying how good a trip this is we guessed it was only a trip up the Thames but having our son and his wife over from Canada we booked.A great trip with good food exellent coffee and we particularly enjoyed the captain's witty commentary after lunch.
