London Thames River Lunch Cruise

Choose your desired cruise departure time when you book. Then, make your own way to the departure pier, and step aboard your comfortable sightseeing boat for your 1.5-hour lunch cruise.

Settle aboard and drink in your first glimpses of London’s skyline from the Thames River. Then, have your camera at the ready as your boat slips its moorings and sets out on its journey up and down this famous river.

Snap photos of top London sights such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, and hear fascinating facts about their history from the informative onboard commentary. Watch, too, for other legendary landmarks, including the immense dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, the instantly recognizable Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

As you cruise, feast on a delicious, 3-course lunch of classic dishes, all freshly prepared by a team of talented, onboard chefs. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Savor each course as you drink in the passing sights and enjoyable river setting.

After around 1.5 hours on the water, your cruise experience concludes when your boat docks back at the original start pier.

The meal and the attentiviness of the servers and staff is superb. Add the scenery and youve got the best lunch you can have.
Take your time to savor the meal while gently watching the banks. Make your reservation ahead so you get a window table.

It was great. My husband and I truly enjoyed it. The meal is excellent. If anyone wants to sit next to a window for the best view, they have to pay extra by asking it when you check-in your voucher
