Experience bustling London at twilight with a 2-hour evening cruise along the historic River Thames! Delight in the glittery cityscape as you pass contemporary attractions like the Gherkin, the London Eye and the Shard, and historic sites such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the haunting Tower of London. Indulge in sparkling wine and canapés as you cruise the river and take in London from this romantic vantage point.
Your luxurious evening cruise departs from Westminster Pier. Make your way there with plenty of time for the early evening departure, and stroll the open-air deck as you embark on a leisurely float along London’s historic River Thames. Find a seat in the indoor saloon, enjoy live music and help yourself to a glass of sparkling wine and delicious, hand-passed nibbles. Then relax and admire dazzling views of the city landmarks at dusk.
Heading first past Westminster, you’ll witness the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben bathed in a sunset glow. Glide past the London Eye and Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic Elizabethan monument and active events venue. Then spot the city's distinctive glass towers, the Gherkin and the Shard – London’s tallest building at 1,016 feet (310 meters) in height. Across the river, the mystery-laden Tower of London offers stark juxtaposition to these modern constructions, reminding viewers of London’s rich and colorful history.
The final leg of your cruise takes you to Greenwich Pier, passing Canary Wharf and the magnificent Cutty Sark, one of the world’s last intact clipper ships. From here, your boat will make its way back to Westminster Pier. As you cruise through the descending night, treat yourself to a drink from the onboard bar (own expense). Your 2-hour tour returns with plenty of time to hit the town.
Perfect evening activity.
Absolutely incredible. The London skyline at night was so beautiful. As we travel the world these past several years, we always go on an evening cruise, and this was the best by far.
We chose the cruise with no dinner. A dinner cruise takes too much away from the reason you are there.
The evening lights cruise was perfect in every way.
Well worth it and very good way to see London from the river perspective
I enjoyed the tour. We were on the inside with live jazz music, snacks, and glasses of wine being served seeing the most beautiful lights/sights London has to offer. What is not to like?
I really enjoyed this experience, I brought it for my boyfriends Christmas present and it was way better than I thought! Would definately recommend it
