What You Can Expect

The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River

The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River

Make your own way to the departure pier on the Thames River in Westminster, and step aboard your sightseeing showboat for your 3-hour evening dinner cruise.

Meet the friendly crew and be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine in the plush lounge saloon. Then, as you sip your drink, soak up your first views of historical London from the water. As your boat pulls away, have your camera ready to capture the city skyline and illuminated sights along the riverbanks. Then, sit down to a delicious 4-course meal of classic British dishes, served with your choice of a half-bottle of red or white wine.

Cruise past famous landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye; snap photos of the monumental dome of St Paul’s Cathedral; and sail under the iconic Millennium Bridge and Tower Bridge as you cruise to the Thames Flood Barrier and back.  In the summer, enjoy the extra attraction of watching the sunset before the city’s floodlights flicker into life.

As you savor your meal, enjoy a fabulous live performance by a cabaret singer. Listen to a string of pop hits and West End numbers followed by more live entertainment, and if you wish, enjoy ample time to hit the dancefloor. Alternatively, simply sit back or head for the outer deck to admire the beautifully lit-up sights.

After around three hours on the water, end your showboat experience when you disembark back at the starting point.

Outstanding tour - Lovely setting for a dinner cruise, professional and friendly staff, great meal / good wine, engaging entertainment. The view of London at night from the Thames is incredible.
