What You Can Expect

Christmas Day on the River Thames: Sightseeing Cruise with Traditional Lunch

Enjoy Christmas lunch on the Thames River!

Make your own way to the departure pier on the Thames River near Westminster, and step aboard your sightseeing boat. 

Settle into the comfortable cabin and soak up the views over Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament on the northern banks of the river. Then, sit back and relax as your boat pulls away from the pier and sets out along the river in the direction of Greenwich. 

As you cruise, drink in the all-encompassing tranquil atmosphere. As your cruise is on Christmas Day, the Thames will be free from everyday river traffic, and the waterfront promenades and sights will be crowd-free and serene.

Sip on an aperitif to celebrate the special occasion and take a seat at your table. Then, sit back and enjoy your 3-course festive feast (see the Itinerary for a sample menu) against a backdrop of iconic London sights, such as Tower Bridge and the London Eye. Savor juicy roast turkey served with all the trimmings as your main course — or a delicious vegetarian option — and if you wish, order a glass of wine or other drink from the onboard bar (own expense). 
With your meal complete, perhaps enjoy the fresh air on the upper deck, and have your camera ready to capture other top London landmarks such as the Tower of London and the Cutty Sark ship. 

After nearly three hours on the water, return to the start pier where your Christmas Day cruise finishes.

Much better than expected. Great staff and food perfectly acceptable given the circumstances. I lost a couple of thins on the boat but I'm still hoping they might turn up and Esther Cellar in the office has been very helpful.

The boat was nicely decorated for Christmas Day and it had lots of large windows to make sightseeing easy and it was lovely and warm on board. The wait staff were pleasant and the service was good. The food was nice - particularly enjoyed the dessert! Christmas Carols on boards was nice. The live performer was good although a little to loud to allow conversation. My guests and I thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Day 2006 Lunch cruise.

It was OK. The food was ordinary. Sightseeing was good.
