LONDON'S No1 EVENING CRUISE ON THE THAMES

Sail off into the evening while the rest of the world goes by. That's the fun of an evening cruise on the Thames! 

On the Riverlights, a Thames evening cruise, you will see great views of London's riverside landmarks and enjoy the unique atmosphere of a trip through the heart of central London – on a boat.

And that’s not all. As you board a waiter will give you a welcome glass of fizz. A live musician plays contemporary music, pop, rock, swing and funky.

You can choose between being on the open-air upstairs deck or in the saloon, which has big windows.
There's space to unwind and circulate, nibble a canapé or maybe visit the fully stocked bar that offers a variety of drinks (soft and otherwise), including Pimms, gin, tonic and more.

Your ticket includes:

  • Sparkling wine or soft drink on arrival
  • Canapés
  • Live music performer
  • 2 hour river Cruise

    Friendly helpful crew, card machine was broken at bar but luckily I had cash, music was a lovely touch. Ticket stated smart casual dress, no jeans, but all other passengers were allowed to ignore this

    The location was great and the ship was really comfortable. It was supposed to be stormy the night I went so I appreciated the indoor sections that still allowed us to see everything. We got lucky and the rain was on and off so we went to the front and back of the boat on the decks, which was lovely. The woman who sang was incredible and so much fun. I liked the free champagne and canapes, though the canapes were a little odd. We passed everything on the waterfront which made for phenomenal photos.

    it is okay value for money, but you should increase the price, so that the canapes and drinks taste nicer


    09 Aug 2017

    ★★★

    Commentary was limited. Didn't hear much about the sights.


  • 08 Aug 2017

    ★★

    I thought that it was going to be a bit classier but it was pretty rough. We had a good time and the singer was very good but the boat was naff, the canapés were okayish, and the whole thing was a bit over-priced.


    08 Aug 2017

    27 Jul 2017

    ★★

    I was extremely disappointed because we were closed inside a boat. Last year when I did the sundowner cruise, it was on a boat where the entire upper deck was open to the outside, so you always had a panoramic view of the entire city and both sides of the river. Also, the musician was outside, and the music could be heard from everywhere. On this cruise, however, the only outdoor areas were small areas at the front and back of the ship, and the music couldn't be heard. The music wasn't jazz as advertised. What is the point of a sunset cruise if you can't see the sun because you're inside? This cruise didn't have a magical atmosphere the way last year's did. This cruise should always be offered with the boat that is completely open on the upper deck.

    29 Jun 2017

    Expensive trip for one drink, rubbish canapés and a boat that claims to show the sun going down - which we couldn't see as the boat had a roof which restricted all view! Make sure you check which boat you get - it makes a massive difference!


  • 27 Jun 2017

    ★★★★★

    Lovely river cruise. Great scenery, great gentle pace, the guitar playing was perfect for the mood, canapes were enough for a few nibbles and the extra Champers we pre-ordered was a good value extra. Yes we were lucky with the weather, warm and sunny, but would definitely do it again.


    27 Jun 2017

    Was just a 1.5 hr trip as left late due to the pier being blocked by an incoming boat. Did not compensate for late departure in fact returned early. Not enough canapes to go around.


    02 Jun 2017

    ★★★★★

    A great experience at an excellent price. Champagne, canapes, beautiful music, and wonderful views from a river cruise on the Thames. A perfect evening for our 40th wedding anniversary.


    02 Jun 2017

    I thought it was a complete waste of money. £32 pounds for a lap up and down and the thames. Little amount of food, was hungry the whole time. Drinks were expensive. Would ask for a refund if possible.


    18 May 2017

    ★★★★

    Lovely smooth ride on the boat. Glass of bubbly and a variety of snacks on board.


    11 May 2017

    Bizarrely disorganized; even though the crew had a complete listing of all passengers expected, they were short about a dozen seats, so lots of us had to stand for the whole cruise. Also, the setup is inherently flawed; this is supposed to be a sightseeing cruise but the seats were set up facing inward, away from the windows. The total effect was low-class and amateurish. Sorry! We made the best of the evening, but it was just very poor performance. The crew seemed well-intentioned.
