WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF THE BEST SLICE OF LONDON - Afternoon Tea Cruise on the River 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:

  • 1.5 hour river cruise 
  • 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.

    I'm not sure what I am supposed to rate here. I definitely rate "Afternoon Tea" with 5 stars, but that particular experience was worth only 3, sorry. Next time I'll do it in a hotel. (Or should I rate the purchase process? That was smooth...)

    We arrived on a cold and wet Monday afternoon and it was so lovely to step onto a warm and inviting boat. The tables were set and even though we were in the middle of the boat our view wasn't obstructed. The food was lovely with a good selection of freshly made sandwiches, petit fouers and a large scone with fresh cream and jam. The service was excellent with tea and coffee being continually offered as well as the opportunity to order wine and drinks from the bar. There was also plenty of time to go up on deck for fresh air and to admire the views. Well worth the money, a lovely afternoon out.

    It was great. However, the amount of bite-sized sweets and cookies on the middle plate was a little on the small side. with the amount of sandwitches, and scones with jam and cream, the middle plate felt just poor and sad.

    Tea was sumptuous! Cakes, scones, sandwiches without crusts!

    Very well presented. Can not fault.

    ★★★★

    Really enjoyed afternoon tea with City Cruises. Food was great, staff pleasant. The boat was very warm so wear layers. Only issue was that you couldnt hear the commentary so there were buildings which would be nice to hear about. Would definitely do the trip again though.


    19 Feb 2019

    ★★★★

    The waiter spilled hot tea on myself and the table. It was very confusing as he did not seem like he even knew how to pour tea when it should be the one thing he should know how to do on an afternoon cruise. Other than that it was perfect. So much food and yummy tea.


    19 Feb 2019

    We were really looking forward to our afternoon tea cruise as it was our valentines treat but the night before we were told my father in law was very ill with a chest infection and we ended up at the hospital all night he is 82 years old and was very frightened we felt we couldn’t just go off for a day and leave him so my husband rang to ask if we could postpone our trip for another date but he was very rudely told NO because you have to give 72 hours notice well I’m so sorry an 82 year old man didn’t give us 72 hours notice of a chest infection that could easily have turned to phumonia ! It’s now couple of weeks on and he is still on antibiotics and steroids I think something needs to be done about customer service


    19 Feb 2019

    ★★★★

    Prix correct mais prestation moyenne


    19 Feb 2019

    ★★★

    I have been on a city cruise before but a different boat. Didn’t like this one. It was too cramped, literally sitting on other people’s tables. No privacy as everyone can hear you’re convo. The tea wasn’t even supplied in a teapot...the sandwiches weren’t all that and the scones were rock solid. Also the waiters that kept brushing past us had hygiene issues - sort it out please 😒


  • 19 Feb 2019

    ★★

    Goda smörgåsar och kakor. Teet så där, inte så varmt. Informationen- Ljudnivån ur högtalarna var fruktansvärd- utan att man hörde vad som berättades!!! Der regnade under vår tur, vilket innebar att alla fönster immade igen- ingen utsikt alls. Skulle aldrig göra denna tur igen. Och aldrig gjort den om jag vetat hur den blev!!


    18 Feb 2019

    ★★★

    This was a Christmas present from my husband. However, we were both a bit disappointed. We were sat side by side, couldn't really see the views. When the tea arrived it was fairly basic. There were no place settings or effort. Over priced for what it was.

    Therapeutic, clean boat, nice staff and interesting stories about London.


    18 Feb 2019

    ★★

    Firstly the service was good and the waiting staff were friendly, however the lady next to me asked a simple question about separate knife due to a food allergy, and it took four staff members to solve the problem (mainly due to the fact English was not the first language form all the staff). I had no problem with the staff as they really friendly and helpful. I had a concern with the tea (it was cheap and tasteless). The sandwich's were not fresh, and the scones were hard.

    I bought this as a present for my sister in law to celebrate her special birthday this is what she says, Sandwiches where nice and fresh but I think if there was a choice then there would of been no wastage, I did notice other tables leaving sandwiches too. Salmon is not our choice! The tiny cakes on the middle shelf were not nice at all. The scones where nice , a little dry as when you spread cream on they crumbled. Tasty though. Coffee was good. For the price you pay I was expecting something ‘special’. Lastly , over the tannoy was a mumbled voice the odd word I picked out re safety, I did ask the waiter what was said as I couldnt hear enough to understand the voice. He attempted to look interested but never said what exactly was said! There was no comentary at all. Would of been good to know exactly where we where and what buildings we where passing. That said This is not a complaint just my thoughts and observations.

    A very nice experience for a tourist


    08 Feb 2019

    ★★★★

    Very nicely presented meal. Plenty of topups of tea. For those of us who drink our tea black, it got rather too strong by the end. Maybe a small jug of hot water instead of the milk?


    08 Feb 2019

    ★★★★

    My friend & I did the afternoon tea cruise on Wednesday. The selection of sandwiches & scones were fabulous & the waiters came around with tea frequently. I don't recall a commentary which I thought was part of it but it didn't matter as we had plenty to discuss. Just two negatives. I think either have fewer but bigger cakes & forget the petit fours. And I thought it was rude when the staff were clearing away & I had my cup in my hand & they whisked the saucer away!!! My friend overheard them saying it was their last cruise for the day & they were probably anxious to finish up but..............

    We enjoyed the high tea and the sights seen from the cruise although would have been better if more on the chelsea bridge side than greenwich

    Really enjoyed afternoon tea with City Cruises. Food was great, staff pleasant. The boat was very warm so wear layers. Only issue was that you couldnt hear the commentary so there were buildings which would be nice to hear about. Would definitely do the trip again though.

    The waiter spilled hot tea on myself and the table. It was very confusing as he did not seem like he even knew how to pour tea when it should be the one thing he should know how to do on an afternoon cruise. Other than that it was perfect. So much food and yummy tea.

    We were really looking forward to our afternoon tea cruise as it was our valentines treat but the night before we were told my father in law was very ill with a chest infection and we ended up at the hospital all night he is 82 years old and was very frightened we felt we couldn’t just go off for a day and leave him so my husband rang to ask if we could postpone our trip for another date but he was very rudely told NO because you have to give 72 hours notice well I’m so sorry an 82 year old man didn’t give us 72 hours notice of a chest infection that could easily have turned to phumonia ! It’s now couple of weeks on and he is still on antibiotics and steroids I think something needs to be done about customer service

    I have been on a city cruise before but a different boat. Didn’t like this one. It was too cramped, literally sitting on other people’s tables. No privacy as everyone can hear you’re convo. The tea wasn’t even supplied in a teapot...the sandwiches weren’t all that and the scones were rock solid. Also the waiters that kept brushing past us had hygiene issues - sort it out please 😒

    Goda smörgåsar och kakor. Teet så där, inte så varmt. Informationen- Ljudnivån ur högtalarna var fruktansvärd- utan att man hörde vad som berättades!!! Der regnade under vår tur, vilket innebar att alla fönster immade igen- ingen utsikt alls. Skulle aldrig göra denna tur igen. Och aldrig gjort den om jag vetat hur den blev!!

    This was a Christmas present from my husband. However, we were both a bit disappointed. We were sat side by side, couldn't really see the views. When the tea arrived it was fairly basic. There were no place settings or effort. Over priced for what it was.

    Firstly the service was good and the waiting staff were friendly, however the lady next to me asked a simple question about separate knife due to a food allergy, and it took four staff members to solve the problem (mainly due to the fact English was not the first language form all the staff). I had no problem with the staff as they really friendly and helpful. I had a concern with the tea (it was cheap and tasteless). The sandwich's were not fresh, and the scones were hard.

    I bought this as a present for my sister in law to celebrate her special birthday this is what she says, Sandwiches where nice and fresh but I think if there was a choice then there would of been no wastage, I did notice other tables leaving sandwiches too. Salmon is not our choice! The tiny cakes on the middle shelf were not nice at all. The scones where nice , a little dry as when you spread cream on they crumbled. Tasty though. Coffee was good. For the price you pay I was expecting something ‘special’. Lastly , over the tannoy was a mumbled voice the odd word I picked out re safety, I did ask the waiter what was said as I couldnt hear enough to understand the voice. He attempted to look interested but never said what exactly was said! There was no comentary at all. Would of been good to know exactly where we where and what buildings we where passing. That said This is not a complaint just my thoughts and observations.

    Very nicely presented meal. Plenty of topups of tea. For those of us who drink our tea black, it got rather too strong by the end. Maybe a small jug of hot water instead of the milk?

    My friend & I did the afternoon tea cruise on Wednesday. The selection of sandwiches & scones were fabulous & the waiters came around with tea frequently. I don't recall a commentary which I thought was part of it but it didn't matter as we had plenty to discuss. Just two negatives. I think either have fewer but bigger cakes & forget the petit fours. And I thought it was rude when the staff were clearing away & I had my cup in my hand & they whisked the saucer away!!! My friend overheard them saying it was their last cruise for the day & they were probably anxious to finish up but..............

    Fantastic afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames. Great way to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday. The afternoon tea was of really good quality and we were provided with lots of food. The team were also really attentive, constantly checking up, refilling drinks, taking orders, pictures etc.
