London: River Thames Dinner Cruise

1. London: River Thames Dinner Cruise

Take a leisurely evening cruise through the heart of London to see its famous sights illuminated at night. In the summer, there is the added delight of watching the sun set from the water before the lights come alive! The 3-hour cruise from Westminster to the Thames Barrier and back starts with a welcome drink when you board. Follow your cocktail with a delicious 4-course dinner, plus entertainment from a live singer. This dinner cruise from the heart of London combines a great meal with cabaret and dancing. Sail past the modern landmarks of the O2 Arena, Canary Wharf, and City Hall, and continue as far as the monumental Thames Barrier flood defense before turning back to the Houses of Parliament. By the time darkness falls, dinner gives way to a cabaret singer performing tunes from West End Shows both past and present, along with other popular music. Although dancing is encouraged during and after the cabaret performance, if you prefer you can sit back and simply enjoy the music and floodlit sights. The cruise ends at the original starting point.

The dinner boat was right on time. Very classy decor, seating is set up at 4 seats to a table. We ended up with a great young couple at our table!!! Bubbly as you arrived, seating had been allocated, so no bun fight whilst people found there seats. The staff of the boat were charming, service great!!! AND it was delicious!!!! Bonus!!! To see the buildings and bridges along the Thames lit up by spectacular lighting was very special. Had a marvellous night and would recommend this activity to everyone!!!!!

An amazing experience overall & very good value for money. However admission was disorganised as first come wasn’t first in. The staff standing at the exit for “tips” I thought was very unnecessary & degrading! A great idea but find another way for tips!

What a great way to spend an evening!! The service & food we’re fabulous, and the sights unbeatable!! I would HIGHLY recommend this dinner cruise to anyone!

Had a delicious meal and a fab evening along the Thames, entertainment was amazing too.

It was an amazing experience!! We were group of 6 and we all had a great time!!
