While in London, combine an iconic British tradition with a unique sightseeing excursion on an afternoon tea cruise! Spend a luxurious 1.5 hours enjoying a unique dining experience with family and friends on the River Thames. As you cruise from Tower Pier to Westminster, indulge in tea, freshly prepared cakes and sandwiches, and view London’s great landmarks including the Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.
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.
You get lots of food and you get to see all the sitters.

Everything was lovely and it was a perfect afternoon out on the river. I definitely recommend it if you are after a delicious and relaxing way to see the city from the perspective of the river.
Very enjoyable, service was good and surroundings excellent. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to see London from the different perspective whilst relaxing with afternoon tea
We loved our experience. It was our favourite and most informative tour, without standing in line, looking for something to drink, or trying to understand what a guide was saying. The master of ceremonies was extremely humorous while still clearly giving us a great overview of a great city. We would recommend this tour to everyone that goes to London. 10 out of 10! Or 5 stars!
