Spend an afternoon on the river while indulging in a leisurely afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames. Enjoy a fresh selection of cakes, sandwiches and scones served with lashings of cream and jam. Sit back, relax and sample a limitless supply of afternoon tea on a cruise that is an ideal end to a busy day of sightseeing or shopping in London.
An afternoon tea cruise on the river Thames provides an elegant setting for a light bite to eat in a refined, sophisticated atmosphere. Take a break from the frantic pace of city life and set sail with good friends and great food while taking a unique look at some of the Capital's most famous landmarks.
Unwind in the company of Big Ben, St Paul's Cathedral and Tower Bridge as you sail right through the heart of the Capital on-board a vessel with giant panoramic windows and an open air observation deck offering unobstructed 360 Degree views of the city.

Exceeded expectations Stacey, 10/03/2019 (Mature Adults)I’m normally lazy with reviews but this needs one. It was such a great well orchestrated afternoon. The staff were brilliant and the afternoon tea was one of the best I’ve had. Thank you !
BIRTHDAY TREAT Baladog, 18/02/2019 (Family with adult children)Great afternoon tea ,sandwiches lovely and fresh plenty of jam and cream for the scones ,as much tea and coffee as you want ,staff very friendly we had a lovely time
Nice afternoon outing MAli, 18/02/2019 (Young Adults)Really pleasant experience and good value for money. Duration is long enough to enjoy your tea and then go up to the top to take in London's views and all the staff on board were very nice and polite. 4 star due to no choice of teas and also scones all come with raisins, whilst other afternoon teas offer a variety. The commentary on the boat is inaudible over everyone talking whilst having tea so is more of distraction (maybe not have it?) I would definitely recommend this experience at the discounted price point.
Valentines day cruise Spark, 16/02/2019 (Young Adults)Decided to do this cruise with afternoon tea for a valentines day surprise. There was a gluten free option, which exceeded our expectations. We got a window table for 2, and the weather was fine, so all this made a great day out even better. The sight seeing commentary was a bit hit and miss, and not very loud, and we didn't take much notice of it. Service was excellent, it was exceptional value for money.
Excellent cruise Lucy G, 02/01/2019 The whole family really enjoyed it. Service was excellent and the whole experience was memorable. The only downfall was not being able to really hear the auditory guide.... not sure how this could be improved though.

Lunch Cruise Cara123, 05/11/2018 Went to celebrate my daughter’s 21st. Initially booked the Tea but then they were unable to do it on the day so we were offered the lunch cruise instead. Lunch for 16 of us was very good. All of us enjoyed the cruise. The weather certainly helped glorious sunny mild day in November! Would have liked to have gone past the Houses of Parliament though. The boat turned round just before them. Can’t fault the staff and the food was good too.
Lunch cruise Cara123, 05/11/2018 Very good!
great trip down the thames Diana, 03/11/2018 (Family with teenagers)we had a lovely time on the afternoon tea on the Thames. my mum had the gluten free option which she really enjoyed. great selection of cakes and sandwiches. overall fab day
Good value Birthday, 18/10/2018 (Family with young children)Went with granddaughter on a cold wet day. Very organised as told which table you were as boarding. Very quickly brought tea and orders for any alcoholic drinks. As only two of us had table at window. Lovely three tiers of sandwich’s, cakes and scone with clotted cream and jam. Continuously asked if we wanted more tea or coffee. Lovely 90 min cruise up and down Thames. My only complaint was that could not clearly hear commentary as to what we were passing. Some people braved going upstairs to see the sights. All in all very good value for money would definately do again
