Know More about this tour

Head to Embankment Pier in central London and then board your Thames River night cruise. If you opt for the start time of 7:30pm, travel aboard the Harmony, a beautiful Scandinavian sightseeing boat with a dining saloon and spacious open deck. Alternatively, select the 8pm cruise and board the largest dinner cruise boat in London, the magnificent Symphony. The glass-walled vessel is one of the most luxurious vessels on the Thames, affording passengers with sweeping waterfront views of London.

Pick up a welcome cocktail from the onboard bar, and then take a seat at your table as you head east along the Thames River. Relax while listening to live jazz music, and feast on a sumptuous 4-course meal, served by your waiting staff. See the Itinerary below for a sample menu. Upgrade to the Premier Dinner option if you want a half-bottle of house wine and mineral water included. Drinks are also available from the bar (own expense).

As you eat, gaze out of the window to see the sights of London by night. Pass the Houses of Parliament, bathed in a golden glow, and look to the South Bank to see the trendy Tate Modern museum as well as the London Eye — a legendary city landmark. Glide beneath the Millennium Bridge, featured in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and then admire the sight of Shakespeare’s Globe. Look to the north bank for a glimpse of St Paul’s Cathedral and gaze east to see Tower Bridge illuminated against the dark London sky.

Finish your London dinner-cruise experience dancing to anything from 1960s tunes to modern hits. After 2.5 hours of cruising up and down the Thames River, your experience finishes back at Embankment Pier.

    Fun dinner cruise up and down the Thames. Food and service were good. Nice way to get an overview of London at sunset. Went under the London Bridge, cruised by Big Ben, Parliament, London Eye and O2 Arena. Entertainment was amusing to all the Americans on board - the trio sang classic American songs from the 50's think Rat Pack and 70's/early 80's soft pop. It was a fun evening and would recommend for 1st time visitors to London.

    One of the highlights of our week in London. I highly recommend the boat we were on, Symphony. It has more glass than the others and so there were amazing views from every table. It also leaves the latest so in early June we got views during daylight, at sunset and after dark. The food was quite good and our service very good.

    this was an absolute blast, there was live jazz an intimate dining environment and great views at night, the food was excellent, but beware, if your shoes don't look formal you may not get to go.

    Great time on this cruise!! The food was amazing and the band/singer were great! Our party enjoyed it greatly. Note - Dress shoes are a requirement. A gentlemen in our party had boots on and he had to run buy a pair of dress shoes and run back to the boat before he could board. The papers we received just said no sneakers. It really should have said dress shoes required. And he was not the only person that had to go buy shoes. Other than that, it was a great time!

    Met some great people and enjoyed that. Food selection could be better. Food was nothing special.

    The most amazing trip, I booked the premier dinner on the Symphony departing from the Embankment. This was a special treat for a 50th birthday and it was special. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar opposite and boarded the boat at 7pm. We had a good table and lots of space between each table. We received a glass of bubbly once seated, the waiter and all staff were very friendly. The menu arrived and we chose want we wanted and then went on to the back deck to see the sights. As it got dark the lights came on along the river and to see Big Ben, London Eye and London Bridge lit up was amazing. The food arrived and we couldn't have asked for better, wine and water were included in our booking and the waiter made sure we were ok and had every thing we needed. There was live music and we manage to dance, if there is a negative the trip didn't last long enough as we were having such a lovely time. A sparkler was presented to my partner and other people who were there to celebrate birthdays and that was a surprise to me but I had mentioned at time of booking that it was a birthday treat, that was really nice that they made a effort to say Happy Birthday to all who were celebrating. Recommend to one and all as this was an amazing trip and a lovely way to see London sights all lit up and to have great food, wine and music just made it such a special day.

    An excellent way to spend an evening. The boat was lovely. We had a table for two to ourselves. The food was super and the live music made the evening special. It was so nice to see London in the evening from the Thames. Would highly recommend.

    Great experience, even on a cold evening. We were pleasantly surprised by the food quality. What a great way to see London at night. I would highly recommend this tour on the Symphony. Well worth the money.
