LONDON'S No1 THE LONDON SHOWBOAT CRUISE ON THE THAMES

The best night in town is on the river! 

Wine, dine and dance on this great dinner cruise on the Thames, see spectacular views and enjoy show songs and top hits sung by a live performer. Your evening begins the moment you step aboard and are handed a welcome glass of fizz as our singer begins to entertain you and a friendly waiter serves a delicious starter. 

Your ticket includes:

  • A three-hour river cruise
  • A delicious four course meal
  • Sparkling wine on arrival
  • Half bottle of wine per guest
  • Live performer and dancing till late
 

Things just get better as you hum along to the pop tunes and hit songs from West End musicals that accompany your delicious four course dinner and half bottle of wine per guest.  

Stunning views are on the menu too, as the inky-dark night along great vistas of riverscape gives way to the spectacular lighting of Thames-side buildings.

    Davvero bello...con showboat dinner hai la possibilità di vedere Londra di sera, con le varie attrazioni che si affacciano sul Tamigi illuminate. Oltre a goderti lo spettacolo ti godi un'ottima cena composta da 4 portate e a bordo c'è un buon intrattenimento musicale. Il personale è gentilissimo e come benvenuto ti viene offerto un bicchiere di spumante.

    We had a very enjoyable evening. Excellent food, drink and service. Excellent entertainment but would have liked more dancing time for the older guests. Would recommend this trip.


  • 28 Mar 2018

    ★★★★

    The tables are packed tight. I had to pay extra for a table for 2 near the window. The poor souls who couldn't afford to. I know now what sardines feel like! The food was served quickly, but the bottle of wine I'd pre-ordered for £18 (!) never came, until I asked for it three times. Not good! It was cheap plonk and definitely not worth £18. Probably £3.99 in a supermarket. Not impressed. The main course was overcooked, and the chicken tasted 'rubbery'. I enjoyed the entertainment. Good old fashioned British sing a long. I nearly started singing 'pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile smile smile..' Overall I had a good evening and would recommend the trip to anyone! Just don't pre-order drinks! But do pay extra for window seats!

    27 Mar 2018

    ★★★

    Whilst the cruise was an enjoyable experience at night with good music and dancing. The food was poor and could have been improved. The chicken was dry and the starter very simple, you would expect more for the money. The most disappointing aspect was that my partner and were seated at a table with another couple and whilst it is nice to meet new people I expected a more personal experience. It wouldn’t have been difficult to ask if we minded sharing a table or not. After all the experience was advertised for 2 under romantic experiences not for 4.

    We had an amazing night on the city cruise boat . I must say I was a little apprehensive but it was an amazing night . I booked thisfor my hubbys bday as part of the trip to London and for our first night . When we arrived at the pier we were welcomed and the group on board were of mixed ages . Food was servers along with nice wine and a glass of bubbles on arrival . Food was quiet tasty and entertainment was brill . We ate a lovely meal enjoyed the atmosphere and danced which we have not done for awhile till the boat arrived back safely . We had a table with small kids behind us and one little boy was very anxious when the boat moved . And screamed for quiet awhile . The kid was just afraid but the manager onboard made a super effort to ensure we were all ok and not affected and half way through the trip the family were able to leave after bending moved to a quieter location with take away dinners . It was very well handled . Highly recommend , we are in our mid 30’s , sat beside a lady in her 60’s and had nothing but a super night start to finish , views and pic opportunities too . Well worth it and have recommended to friends already should they be visiting London.


    01 Mar 2018

    ★★★★★

    We really enjoyed this evening the meal was lovely, the staff was very helpfully and professional, good customer services, the singer got people up and dancing including me and my partner. The only diserpointment it ended too soon we wanted to stay there all night.


  • 01 Mar 2018

    ★★★

    Well It could be a nicer starter bot everyone likes salmon or fish in general. and desert chocolate mousse.. The Main you can't go wrong as it is chicken but again many people dont eat bacon and the chicken breast was wrapped in bacon. It could be a better variety of food. The show was fantastic. That made the night!

  • 16 Feb 2018

    ★★★★

    Unfortunately two of the party of six missed the boat due to train delays so although the cruise was very good it was obviously disappointing. We did ask about replacement tickets (it was a 21st birthday treat) but City cruises could only offer a discount on future tickets. But we understand the stance of City cruises as not their fault.


    16 Feb 2018

    ★★★

    We booked a table for 2 but was given a sharing table for 4 which we refused but were told to sit there and if there were any tables for 2 available when everyone had boarded they would move us but again refused and they eventually gave us what we had originally booked. Imagine trying to have a romantic meal sitting next to strangers. The food was adequate but basic and overall very expensive for what it was and I don’t think I will be returning.


    15 Feb 2018

    Value for money based on the service and the romance 10/19

    It was a fantastic experience, definitely want to do it again, the only drawback was the drinks were either wine, beer or soft drinks included in the price and as I don't drink wine or beer I had to buy my own alcohol

    Fantastic dinner cruise along the Thames. Staff were very attentive and friendly. We paid extra for a window seat which was well worth it as we had a 2 seater table for this privilege, so not only had fantastic views during the cruise, we also had a more intimate experience. The singer was very good and entertaining, for the last leg of the cruise she played disco music which was great to get up and have a dance to. The 3 course meal was very tasty and very enjoyable. We couldn't fault it. My husband and I booked this for our 20th anniversary and we are very glad that we chose this experience, well recommended.

    Ho scelto questa crociera perché le altre a cui avevo dato priorità erano già esaurite (o almeno i posti con tavolo alla finestra garantito). In realtà devo dire di essere stata pienamente soddisfatta. Il prezzo è assolutamente concorrenziale! Il cibo, menù internazionale, buono. Possibilità di scela tra vini, birre, cocktail (buoni!). Brava la cantante che ha eseguito alcuni bravi dal vivo e assolutamente fantastica la musica disco anni '80 proposta (scelta non scontata). Pesonale gentile e disponibile. Certamente da scegliere ancora! Serata romantica perfetta!!

    We had an amazing night on the city cruise boat . I must say I was a little apprehensive but it was an amazing night . I booked thisfor my hubbys bday as part of the trip to London and for our first night . When we arrived at the pier we were welcomed and the group on board were of mixed ages . Food was servers along with nice wine and a glass of bubbles on arrival . Food was quiet tasty and entertainment was brill . We ate a lovely meal enjoyed the atmosphere and danced which we have not done for awhile till the boat arrived back safely . We had a table with small kids behind us and one little boy was very anxious when the boat moved . And screamed for quiet awhile . The kid was just afraid but the manager onboard made a super effort to ensure we were all ok and not affected and half way through the trip the family were able to leave after bending moved to a quieter location with take away dinners . It was very well handled . Highly recommend , we are in our mid 30’s , sat beside a lady in her 60’s and had nothing but a super night start to finish , views and pic opportunities too . Well worth it and have recommended to friends already should they be visiting London.

    We really enjoyed this evening the meal was lovely, the staff was very helpfully and professional, good customer services, the singer got people up and dancing including me and my partner. The only diserpointment it ended too soon we wanted to stay there all night.

    Well It could be a nicer starter bot everyone likes salmon or fish in general. and desert chocolate mousse.. The Main you can't go wrong as it is chicken but again many people dont eat bacon and the chicken breast was wrapped in bacon. It could be a better variety of food. The show was fantastic. That made the night!

    Unfortunately two of the party of six missed the boat due to train delays so although the cruise was very good it was obviously disappointing. We did ask about replacement tickets (it was a 21st birthday treat) but City cruises could only offer a discount on future tickets. But we understand the stance of City cruises as not their fault.

    ★★★

    We booked a table for 2 but was given a sharing table for 4 which we refused but were told to sit there and if there were any tables for 2 available when everyone had boarded they would move us but again refused and they eventually gave us what we had originally booked. Imagine trying to have a romantic meal sitting next to strangers. The food was adequate but basic and overall very expensive for what it was and I don’t think I will be returning.

    Having been before, friends wanted to go after our recommendation and this was just as good as the first time. Could not fault the evening. Everything was perfect - food, entertainment and the staff very attentive and helpful. The only negative was that the coffee was a slight disappointment but hey!

    We had a lovely evening on the London Showboat Cruise. The greeting was warm and welcoming and we were shown to our table. The food was excellent, service was great, the cruise was brilliant, so many sights to see, all lit up too, and the singer was very entertaining and personable.

    It was a fantastic experience, definitely want to do it again, the only drawback was the drinks were either wine, beer or soft drinks included in the price and as I don't drink wine or beer I had to buy my own alcohol

    Very warm welcome and very comfortable. The only thing I would change is perhaps a choice of starter, all other courses were great.

    Fantastic dinner cruise along the Thames. Staff were very attentive and friendly. We paid extra for a window seat which was well worth it as we had a 2 seater table for this privilege, so not only had fantastic views during the cruise, we also had a more intimate experience. The singer was very good and entertaining, for the last leg of the cruise she played disco music which was great to get up and have a dance to. The 3 course meal was very tasty and very enjoyable. We couldn't fault it. My husband and I booked this for our 20th anniversary and we are very glad that we chose this experience, well recommended.

    Ho scelto questa crociera perché le altre a cui avevo dato priorità erano già esaurite (o almeno i posti con tavolo alla finestra garantito). In realtà devo dire di essere stata pienamente soddisfatta. Il prezzo è assolutamente concorrenziale! Il cibo, menù internazionale, buono. Possibilità di scela tra vini, birre, cocktail (buoni!). Brava la cantante che ha eseguito alcuni bravi dal vivo e assolutamente fantastica la musica disco anni '80 proposta (scelta non scontata). Pesonale gentile e disponibile. Certamente da scegliere ancora! Serata romantica perfetta!!
