  • Overview

    What could be more English or more delightful than an elegant afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames?

    Winter or summer, rain or shine, you’ll enjoy magnificent views of London’s monuments from the huge picture windows of your vessel.

    As you glide along, you’ll be treated to a generous spread of tasty sandwiches, scones with dollops of clotted cream and strawberry jam, traditional cakes and unlimited tea and coffee or soft drinks for kids. Delicious!

    And when you've finished tea, you can always stroll upstairs to take in the 360 degree views of the riverside landmarks.

    This relaxing cruise is the perfect antidote to an early morning shopping spree, or an ideal curtain raiser to an evening at the theatre.

    Should the tour not be available on your chosen date, we have an alternative which includes 2-course gourmet lunch, click here for more details >>
