River Lights - An Elegant Evening Cruise

River Lights cruises show you London's lit-up riverside landmarks at their glittering best on a night time cruise. Added to all the sights of the magnificent Thames you will enjoy a welcome glass of bubbly and delicious canapés while listening to a selection of jazz and chill out pop songs from our live performer. 

What better way to end the day or start your evening?

During a two hour cruise you will take in all the major sites on the river, from the London Eye to the Tower of London, the mini Manhattan of Canary Wharf and returning under the majestic Tower Bridge. The River Thames by night is a magical place and there's nowhere to experience it better than with City Cruises, either from the comfort of the main saloon or upstairs in the open air panorama deck.
