Full description
See London at its very best by spending New Year's Eve in style on board the replica paddle steamer, the P.S. Dixie Queen. It's London's largest and most recognised passenger boat. Following a specially created celebration buffet, relax inside the vessel's beautifully decorated interior and take in the spectacular views available from its spacious windows and open-air deck. Marvel at the city's world-famous landmarks, spectacularly illuminated along the banks of the river.

With a live band, the party on the dancefloor never stops, except to celebrate the countdown at midnight. What's more, you'll have the experience of a lifetime as you pass under the spectacularly illuminated Tower Bridge on your journey through the heart of London. The centrepiece of your celebrations on-board the Dixie Queen takes place beneath Tower Bridge. The raising of this iconic landmark to mark the start of 2020 provides a truly memorable moment during your starlit cruise through the city.

Know before you go
• Please note that due to Tower Bridge's location on the Thames, views of the fireworks display above the London Eye, if they can be seen, will be limited. The sheer size of the Dixie Queen means it is unable to cruise further up the river, towards the fireworks, as a result of low bridges and high tides.
• Tower Bridge will rise at 23:30. From approximately 23:30 to 00:30 the vessel will be positioned between London and Tower Bridge (opposite the HMS Belfast).
• Age restrictions: The entry process will require everyone to present ID, regardless of their age. All guests need to be aware they need ID and have it in their hand prior to reaching the front of the queue, together with their printed e-ticket.
• The dress code is smart casual. No trainers or jeans are permitted.
