What You Can Expect

Thames River Sightseeing Cruise with Afternoon Tea

Nibble on cakes during an afternoon tea cruise in London!

In the afternoon, head to Tower Pier in central London to board the teatime cruise along the River Thames. Find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon 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 mystery-laden Tower of London and the monolithic Shard building, a 95-story pyramid of glass. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a stunning Elizabethan playhouse with running performances, and the towering London Eye. Along the South Bank, you’ll see a medley of buskers, locals and tourists meandering on the bustling pedestrian path. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you’ll get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before heading back east.

As you cruise, indulge in British culinary delights like scones spread with jam and spoonfuls of cream, finger sandwiches, cakes and unlimited tea and coffee. For an added treat, order a glass of bubbly (own expense) from the onboard bar. After tea, feel free to wander the open-air deck as you arrive back at Tower Pier.
