LONDON'S NO.1 AFTERNOON TEA ON THE THAMES

Why not see the best views in London while you tuck into tea, scones and all the trimmings of a traditional afternoon tea on the Thames?

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 with a little cake? And if the mood takes you, perhaps a glass of something bubbly?

Your ticket includes:

  • A selection of sandwiches, traditional cakes, pastries, scones with clotted cream and jam
  • As much tea and coffee as you want
  • Live commentary


And when you've finished off your tea, you can always stroll upstairs to take in the 360 degree views of London's riverside landmarks.

Perfect for relaxing after a little light shopping or just the journey up to town, or for entertaining family and friends.

    We spent 1 1/2 hours on a boat, looking out a window, having background music, and about 7 minutes of history given. I was expecting to have a tour experience and learn something. Instead I over paid for an indoor coffee and biscuit. Not worth the price or your time.

    The afternoon tea was really nice and we'll presented. We were also regularly supplied with tea. My only reason I rate it good and not excellent is that we had no idea what we were eating so it would have been nice to have a list of what everything was.

    The Afternoon Tea was excellent


    6 months ago

    ★★

    Where do I begin. Well, they didn't serve tea on the Afternoon Tea cruise. a full 30 minutes into the cruise we were offered no beverages. No tea. No water. No champagne. No wine. Nothing. Finally, someone came and offered coffee. When I declined, I didn't see another person for 10 more minutes. Once I complained it was explained to me that the tea maker wasn't working properly and they couldn't heat the water. I finally was given a glass of wine (for which I was surprisingly billed). Eventually we were served tea. By then the snacks had been mostly consumed making the continuity of the experience unbalanced.



    To make matters worse, there was a completely unruly child running around and screaming and sliding across the floor throughout the cruise. No one from the staff ever once approached the family and asked them to control their child (around 3 years old). It is not my job as a paying customer to chastise another customer about their behavior. It is the job of the staff to ensure the comfort of all of their customers.



    I think had these few things been corrected this would have been an incredible experience and I would have recommended the cruise highly. Instead, I was very dissappointed and would like my poor experience acknowledged.



    Furthermore, I have videotape of some of what I saw and experienced if anyone from City Cruises would like to discuss with me.

    Was a little disappointed with refreshments. More choice of teas would have been greatly appreciated , way in which served could be updated. Plastic urns had seen better days !!!!

    Very nice afternoon tea.

    We ordered a jug of pimms which went well with the sandwiches and scones.

    Very well presented would have liked to have a choice of sandwich filling as we didn't like all of them but that was just a personal choice. It was a very enjoyable experience.

    Superb afternoon tea - one minor thing might be to have more 'child-friendly' options on the tea plate as my niece didn't like any of the sandwich choices.

    Food was great and lots of it! The table next to us knocked theirs over and they'd eaten most of it but it was replaced in its entirety without hesitation 😃

    Great food and excellent service. The timing of the tea service was perfect with the length of the cruise itself. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon in London.

    We had a great afternoon. The weather was beautiful, the tea was delicious and the views from the boat were really interesting

    The afternoon tea was really nice and we'll presented. We were also regularly supplied with tea. My only reason I rate it good and not excellent is that we had no idea what we were eating so it would have been nice to have a list of what everything was.

    The Afternoon Tea was excellent

    ★★

    Where do I begin. Well, they didn't serve tea on the Afternoon Tea cruise. a full 30 minutes into the cruise we were offered no beverages. No tea. No water. No champagne. No wine. Nothing. Finally, someone came and offered coffee. When I declined, I didn't see another person for 10 more minutes. Once I complained it was explained to me that the tea maker wasn't working properly and they couldn't heat the water. I finally was given a glass of wine (for which I was surprisingly billed). Eventually we were served tea. By then the snacks had been mostly consumed making the continuity of the experience unbalanced.



    To make matters worse, there was a completely unruly child running around and screaming and sliding across the floor throughout the cruise. No one from the staff ever once approached the family and asked them to control their child (around 3 years old). It is not my job as a paying customer to chastise another customer about their behavior. It is the job of the staff to ensure the comfort of all of their customers.



    I think had these few things been corrected this would have been an incredible experience and I would have recommended the cruise highly. Instead, I was very dissappointed and would like my poor experience acknowledged.



    Furthermore, I have videotape of some of what I saw and experienced if anyone from City Cruises would like to discuss with me.

    Our Afternoon Tea was absolutely beautiful and wonderful! They gave special attention to your needs. MY partner was a little hesitant about going to a tea, but soon realized that it was actually fun. We certainly enjoyed every minute of the tea and boat ride.
