Know More about this tour

Board your sightseeing cruise boat at Tower Pier on London’s Thames River, and then take a seat at your window-side table. From the comfort of your seat, gaze out at the sights as you start cruising west into the heart of London.
Following a round-trip route to Westminster, your cruise takes in several iconic London attractions and landmarks. Pass the famous Tower of London, juxtaposed against the modern buildings of the city’s Square Mile, and avert your gaze southward to admire a medley of the capital’s big-name sights. Look to the skyline to see the Shard — Western Europe’s tallest building — and see street performers and tourists strolling down the vibrant South Bank.
As you pass further attractions such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, take time to savor your afternoon tea. Beautifully presented on quintessentially English cake stands, your lavish spread consists of scones with clotted cream and jam, dainty finger sandwiches and a selection of moreish cakes. A good British pot of tea is also included and, if you would like to make your meal that little bit more special, ask the waiting staff for a glass of Champagne (own expense). Any additional drinks can be purchased from the onboard bar.
After 1.5 hours on the Thames River, hop back onto dry land back at Tower Pier where your cruise ends.

  • Easy to use. Had assigned seats so don't need to rush to get a window seat since preassigned we didn't know this and came early but we really didn't need to. We didn't get a window but it was still good views.

  • Food was pretty good, wait staff were very attentive. We got to see the bridge opening which was cool. Took a lot of pictures from the upper deck. Departure pier is right next to Tower of London which is convenient. Highly recommend and will do again.

  • I took my mum for the cruise as a treat. Service was great, staff very attentive. We had great weather which made the trip even better. and it was nice when we were told about the sights we were passing. Time was perfect, not too long not too short. The only downfall was the food. Sandwiches were ok, the scones not amazing, but the chocolates were disappointing. I'd rather have 2 freshly made cakes than this chocolates. Afternoon tea should all be about cakes :

  • Enjoyed this tour along the River Thames. Tea and lunch was good.

  • Superb! But you must contrive to order table at the window :

  • A different way to enjoy afternoon tea and take in some sights of London without walking a step. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Liked the idea of being shown to our table. Tables for two are on the windows, bigger tables in the middle, but this does not restrict your viewing. Good selection of sandwiches, one round per person, lovely selection of mini cakes and a large fruit scone each with jam and cream on the side. No stinting on the tea. Commentary on return part of journey helped to point out the more interesting buildings etc. A pleasant way to spend an hour and half.

  • A very comfortable cruise, and a perfect afternoon tea. The staff really took care of us, as we had a few dietary restrictions, they changed around the menu for us even though it was last minute. Hats off to the team and we look forward to it again when we visit London in the near future.

  • A delightful way to spend the afternoon!

  • Had a really lovely day, food plentiful staff polite and courteous, would of been nice to go a little slower en route to Houses of Parliament etc, commentary a little muffled over everyone chatting, but would definitely recommend this trip, will certainly be going again

  • This is a wonderful way to experience the sights of London along the Thames as well as a sampling of what afternoon tea is like. We were not expecting the amount of food served. We also got to see the Tower bridge open for a passing ship. We thought it was well worth the cost. The only negative was that it was somewhat difficult to hear the explanations of the sights we were passing.
