Partake in a unique sightseeing excursion with this delightful lunch cruise along the River Thames! See the best of London’s riverside attractions on a 1.5-hour roundtrip cruise from Tower Pier to Westminster. Stroll the deck, savor a delectable 2-course meal and admire great views of the London Eye, the Tower of London and more. An onboard bar offers additional drink options for spicing up your afternoon (own expense).
Your luncheon cruise sets off from Tower Pier in central London at midday. Make your own way to the pier with plenty of time to board the boat and find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city shoreline as your 1.5-hour cruise begins.
Heading west from Tower Pier, you’ll first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard. Also, know at The Shard of Glass, this 95-story pyramid dominates the South Bank skyline. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic active theater, and the enormous London Eye. Along the South Bank, witness the bustle of performers, locals and meandering tourists. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you’ll get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before turning around.
As you cruise, indulge in a sumptuous 2-course meal featuring an entree and dessert with coffee and tea. For an added treat, purchase wine, beer or other non-alcoholic beverages from the onboard bar. After lunch, get some air on the outside deck as your river cruise returns to Tower Pier. You'll arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!
Excellent meal, value for money trip
The best thing we did in London- better than the London Eye
Food was better than we expected, relaxed and enjoyable trip.
Just the time I needed to relax.
I was really impressed with this cruise and would highly recommend it! I travelled with my husband and 2 children aged 16 and 8. Staff were really professional and friendly. The large spotless boat was well maintained and the food lovely. We had an excellent time.
My wife and throughly enjoyed the Thames Lunch cruise. The staff was courteous and attentive, the food was served promptly and efficiently . We were fortunate that the weather was very nice so after lunch we sat outside and enjoyed the scenery.
Very good! The boat was warm and comfortable, the food and service also good. A brilliant way to see the sights.

Delicious food fabulous service, great way to spend an afternoon.
This was an excellent tour. The food was very good, the service excellent and the scenery along the Thames was great. Also the boat was very clean and the restrooms top notch
This tour was awesome...the only bad thing was Viator failed to submit our names to the tour company. Thankfully I had a screenshot of the receipt and the tour had no shows so we were able to embark on the cruise. The food was awesome and the scenery was great!
