Tea time on the river - how civilised!

Afternoon Tea while cruising along the Thames. What a civilised way to pass the afternoon. Why not gather a group of like minded friends to enjoy a gentle cruise and cake. And if the mood takes you, perhaps a glass of something bubbly?

Of course afternoon tea wouldn't be right without scones, jam and a generous dollop of cream, so fear not you'll find those along with the selection of finger sandwiches and cakes. Yum yum. Plus of course tea! In fact an almost endless supply if that's what takes your fancy.

As the perfect antidote to a mornings serious retail therapy, or perhaps as a curtain raiser to an evening at the theatre, why not join us on the river for a relaxing cruise past London's riverside landmarks. And when you've finished off your tea, you can always stroll upstairs to take in the the 360 degree views of London's riverside landmarks. A more elegant way to explore London's sights from the warmth and comfort of the City Cruises fleet.

We hope to see you soon...
