Make your own way to the departure pier on the Thames River in Westminster, and step aboard your sightseeing showboat for your evening dinner cruise.

Meet the crew as you're welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine in the lounge saloon. Then, as you sip your drink, soak up your first views of London from the water. Settle into your seat for a 4-course meal of classic British dishes/.

Cruise past famous landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye; snap photos of the monumental dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral; and sail under Tower Bridge as you cruise to the Thames Flood Barrier and back. In the summer months you can catch the sunset, too.

While you eat, enjoy a live performance by a cabaret singer. Listen to a string of pop hits and West End numbers followed by more live entertainment, and if you wish, enjoy ample time to hit the dance floor. Alternatively, simply sit back or head for the outer deck to admire the illuminated sights.

Words are not enough for such a fabulous trip
, Jun 2021
What more could you want a 4 course dinner whilst travelling down the River Thames. Even though we did this during a Pandemic the food was terrific, the staff fantastic and the whole experience was fabulous. One of the many things we loved was travelling one way in daylight and the other way under the lights of London. The bridges looked spectacular. This trip is highly recommended.
Wonderful evening but food is limited.
, Jun 2021
Such an amazing evening - wonderful live music and drink on tap. The only criticism is the food - not everyone likes tomatoes and a lot of the meal was either tomato flavoured or actual tomato like the soup and there is no choice. Would be better if there was a simple choice of what the meats are covered in. Otherwise a great experience.

Poor organisation
, May 2021
We got there in plenty time for our cruise......poor signposting for our cruise so when we got there the boat had left before 7.45. We have lost 240 pound. No phone number to ring as they close at 3pm and only monday to Friday. Very poorly organised.
Dinner cruise

The food and entertainment was amazing, we were lucky to have a lovely calm evening to go up on deck and explore the wonderful views of London at night. Well worth the experience.
