Know More about this tour

Make your own way to Westminster Pier in central London in the early evening, and hop aboard your cruise boat. Then, take a seat on the open-air upper deck, or settle into one of the window-side seats in the fully-heated lower saloon area.
Feel the rumble of the engines and take in unparalleled views of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben as your cruise boat slips away from the pier and out onto the calm waters of the Thames River.
Nab a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and help yourself to the selection of colorful canapés being served by the friendly waiting staff. Then, relax and listen to the live musician play soothing jazz, pop and soul songs as your boat glides down the river toward historical, Royal Greenwich.
With the sun hanging low in the sky, see the landmarks of London bathed in a dreamy, orange glow. Cruise past the London Eye, and see the majestic St Paul’s Cathedral and the famous Elizabethan playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
Have your camera at the ready as you meander through the cluster of famous sights that surround the London Bridge area. See the aptly-named Gherkin building and the gravity-defying Shard that stands at a dizzying 1,016 feet (310 meters) tall. Then, marvel at the iconic Tower Bridge and be awed by the monumental Tower of London.
Travel past the impressive skyscrapers and twinkling lights of Canary Wharf, London’s financial hub, before admiring the Cutty Sark, the world’s only surviving tea clipper, standing proudly at Greenwich pier.
Perhaps head to the bar on the lower-deck to purchase additional drinks (own expense). Then, as the cruise boat turns and makes its way back to Westminster, return to your seat and watch the lights of London flicker to life as the sky grows ever darker. See the city’s skyline illuminate against the inky backdrop and snap a few final photos, before disembarking at Westminster Pier where your cruise concludes.

  • Great tour!!! We picked the perfect night. There was a full moon and we were even able to witness tower bridge raising

  • Too many people packed onto the boat. Difficult to find somewhere to sit as it was raining. Had to face inwards and couldn't really see. Once the rain cleared we could go up on deck and had some space.

  • Lovely to see the Thames at night. Enjoyed the sparkling wine and tasty canapes as well as the jazz music..

  • Wonderful night

  • Absolutely beautiful way to see the city on the River Thames. Drinks were inexpensive, sights were amazing. Would definitely do this again.

  • We did this on our last night in London and it was the perfect ending to our trip! Even our two sons 21 and 18 enjoyed it very much. We were lucky and had beautiful weather that night, so we sat up top. We came prepared with hats, jackets, scarves and gloves, but it was surprising to us how many people stayed below. It was very nice inside with live music and canapes, but even with the large windows it seemed hard to see the beautiful London skyline. And the glass of sparkling wine was a wonderful touch!

  • We had a really great time and enjoyed it to the full. We went on this in January and it was a really cold night so you couldn't resist more then few minutes on the open deck. I would recommend to take this tour in Summer if possible although we still had a great time.

  • The staff was very friendly and engaging, and the trip was much longer than I had anticipated! My boyfriend and I had plenty of time to enjoy a bottle of wine and the many rounds of canapes. I planned this for his birthday, as the London Eye was closed for annual maintenance, and it proved to be the perfect thing! Although it was the 20th of January, we spent the entire return route on the open air deck above, snuggling up and enjoying the lights.

  • A really nice experience. The boat in a excellent conditions with all the crew aboard with a smile in their faces and a very good service. We enjoy passing though all the best spots in London: The Elizabeth Tower with its Big Ben Clock, The Parliament, Tate Modern Museum and specially The London Bridge that we admire it thoughtfully and the best thing: we took great pictures in a different perspective. Very nice ride!

  • Not amazing, we cruised at night so the sites were beautiful however we were disappointed with the layout of the vessel and the 'selection of delicious canapés'. There was nowhere near enough for everyone on the cruise and a lot of us walked off starving. One of the crew members was quite rude to an older disabled individual which didn't sit right with us.
