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.

    ★★

    Afternoon Tea was very disappointing. Had 8 sandwiches but only 2 options and one of the options my mum (who I went with) didn't like! No explanation of anything was and scones only came with currants, which I'm not particularly keen on. Travelled from West Sussex and wasn't worth the train ticket of I'm being honest.


    16 Oct 2018

    ★★★★★

    Sandwiches excellent. Cakes were mini enough not to be stodgy.

    09 Oct 2018

    food was cold , not good , the tour was good


    09 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    I’ve given 4 stars because the tea was extremely weak - coloured water! I asked for tea bags and the waitress came back very quickly with enough to last the trip. I was then able to get tea to my taste however, if you like strong tea you would struggle with the type of tea bags used. The staff were very friendly and efficient, coming round regularly with tea and coffee. Although I would have preferred a teapot on the table. The commentary was good, given by a local Londoner. It was a bit difficult to follow at first, Until I realised if you were facing forward your left was the commentators right! Made more enjoyable by the fact that when we had finished eating we could go onto the top deck. Over all, very good value for money


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    The afternoon tea cruise was a good value.


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Tea was a bit weak and wishy washy


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    We enjoyed the cruise and the tea. We had a table of four but did not know the 2 people next to us. The tables are very close together and the seats are joined. One of the ladies was up and down all the time and my wife was jolted everytime. The tea was served at the start of the cruise and we really missed the more interesting part of the cruise up to Westminster as we were below deck. One of the waitresses spilt some coffee on my wife but did not even apologise! By the time we finished our tea we were able to go on deck and see the delights of Canary Wharf! We were not able to hear the safety talk at the start of the cruise as the tannoy was garbled and we could not hear what I assume was an enlightening talk along the way because of that. It was only when we went on deck we could hear what was being said. That being said we enjoyed the cruise very much.

    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★★

    All good, Plenty of tea refills


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★★★

    A river trip is often a good introduction to a city. Add a tea and its a very good introduction to a city. London Changes daily, so any time is a good time. I had not been on the river for years. Last time there was a different London Bridge, HMS Belfast was on active service and there were ships as far as the eye could see past Tower Bridge. So to see it today was brilliant. P.S I am not of retirement age yet!


    08 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Was spoiled by not being able to enter the shard


  • 06 Oct 2018

    Lovely gift experience from my daughter


    05 Oct 2018

    Enjoyable way to spend 1.5hrs. Commentary was a little muffled.

    The website was easy to navigate for the purchase


    03 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    Some of the sandwiches were a bit dry, we were the last to be served. Everything else was fine. Just unable to give you a 5*


    03 Oct 2018

    Sadly we didnt enjoy the experience


    03 Oct 2018

    Attentive and efficient service. Fresh food and abundant beverages. However, the P.A. system left much to be desired,which unfortunately spoiled what was otherwise an enjoyable experience.

    Quality of the tea was excellent & timing was perfect. No rush to eat & plenty of time to observe the famous landmarks


    02 Oct 2018

    Very enjoyable cruise, lovely spacious boat, delicious afternoon tea and very attentive helpful staff.


    02 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Good cruise Couldn’t hear the audio Afternoon tea basic and not very tasty


    02 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    All a bit rushed, did not know when cruise would end. PA system, could do without too loud. Restricted view below deck. Catering could do better


    02 Oct 2018

    Afraid that I cannot comment as on the day, which was my partner's 80th birthday, he was very ill and we were unable to go. Having spoken with the company and requesting an alternative date, their policy is that this is not possible. I didn't want a refund, just a different date, but sadly this was not forthcoming.


    02 Oct 2018

    ★★★★★

    Wonderful day, the only problem was some of our party struggled with the walk from car park to boat and vice versa. It would be useful for city cruises to have a spare wheelchair. One lady with a walking frame did very well but we had to borrow the frame and push the person with COPD as she couldn’t get back.


  • 02 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    It took long time before we got the wine we had order when we booked the trip. We could not hear what the captain say, so that was no point of having, we also say that to the people who worked in the boat. Thay were also nice to give us ordenary sandwich since we had misunderstood the bookin and there ask for plane.


    02 Oct 2018

    ★★

    We thought the sandwiches left a lot to be desired. Some of them only had one small piece of cucumber.


    02 Oct 2018

    ★★★★★

    The surprisingly warm late September afternoon was perfect. The service from the boat's staff was excellent. My request for vegetarian sandwiches had been noted and passed to the staff (this does not happen in most places!). Our table companions were lovely company and we had a brilliant time. Thank you City Cruises.

    24 Sep 2018

    ★★★

    Tea was nice and fresh and cruise good but there was NO COMMENTARY which was ridiculous as most people would have expected to learn about the sites we could see and on the website it said there would be a live commentary which never happened- very disappointed with this

    En god oplevelse for hele familien.

    Excellent selection of sandwiches and cakes. Regular top ups of tea / coffee


    24 Sep 2018

    ★★★

    Did not really deliver the brochure prise


    24 Sep 2018

    Missed cruise due to traffic snarls. There should have been an alternative way to accommodate us. We paid through our nose for the cruise. Shall put it up in the social media so that others are warned against booking with you.


    24 Sep 2018

    ★★★★★

    We had this experience purchased for us as a gift and we went along with reservations about whether we would enjoy it. I have to admit I was very surprised at how much fun it was. We were with some friends which also added to the enjoyment but we had a thoroughly memorable afternoon. The only thing i was a little disappointed with were the sandwiches, the bread was slightly dry but apart from that we had a great time. We would certainly recommend this experience to anyone considering it.

    Great trip, would recommend to my friends


  • 17 Sep 2018

    ★★

    I am sorry to say it was very disappointing. Good points were, we were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our seats promptly. The seating was comfortable. The lavatories were clean. The sandwiches and cakes were tasty, hot drinks were readily and frequently offered. The prosecco was nice. The female waitress was polite efficient and friendly. Bad points were, the pre ordered drinks were not waiting on our table as I had expected. What is the point of pre ordering if this is not the case. The personal address system was too loud and was pre recorded. The decor was dated. We spent more time passing converted wharf buildings with no commentary than we did passing the sights of London. This could be a million times better with just a little more consideration and effort. A shame.


    17 Sep 2018

    ★★★★★

    The staff were amazing. So kind and prompt.


    17 Sep 2018

    17 Sep 2018

    Enjoyed the cruise and the sections of river it travelled. The tables inside would have looked nicer with tablecloths and whilst food was adequate, the tea was not very good quality.


    17 Sep 2018

    ★★★★★

    We were looking for something different than the usual crowded sight seeing ships. Additionally it was a birthday present for my mum and we got a great tour with a lovely and caring crew. It was the perfect London experience for us and we can totally recommend it.


  • 17 Sep 2018

    Not good It was easy to book but not good at all we booked our cruise with a voucher I was given for my birthday me and my partner booked a day off work had to travel and pay parking to only find out when we got there the man at the other end of the phone booked us for one in London instead or york even after explaining we wanted York and the voucher was bought for York cruises in big bold letters very very unhappy have recently contacted about this to get a refund and heard nothing back


    17 Sep 2018

    Not bad of an experience for the cost of the tickets.

    There might have been better options for a true high tea experience. The cruise itself was satisfactory, but not exceptional.


    14 Sep 2018

    I am fussy about my tea so would have preferred a pot of tea and a pot of hot water

    Staff very professional and polite


  • 12 Sep 2018

    ★★★★

    Other than table clothes the decor and crockery was utilitarian. The staff were delightful as was the food. The extra orders were delivered at the beginning of the trip. The tiny tea cups were refilled regularly. I had thought there was a commentary on the sites, but I was wrong. I have done other boat trips that had this as part of the trip, so I felt this was lacking.


    11 Sep 2018

    ★★★★

    We had a very good day in London Thames cruise was great.they should let you choose your sandwiches as my daughter didn't eat any of them .

    We had a lovely afternoon tea cruise . The boat was clean and we were welcomed on board by friendly staff . The commentary on board was very good and is great for anyone who doesn’t know the history of London . The staff in the office were so helpful I rang last minute to ask for a window seat and they managed to sort one so we were very grateful . The sandwiches very the only downfall they were good but not the best if you like plain fillings then maybe mention that when booking other than that very enjoyable


    10 Sep 2018

    Perfect gift. Staff friendly and quick. Great selection of sandwiches and cakes. Paid extra for window, table for two and wine. Well worth it. Would definitely book with city cruises again.

  • 06 Sep 2018

    was brought this as a gift from one of my friends who I don't see a lot.It was our first time experiencing the afternoon Tea Boat tour, I did not like that you had to share a Table with people you did not know because I could not hear half the things my friend was saying because the other people on my table was talking. Also the Staff on the Boat were rude and did not make us feel welcome or comfortable throughout the cruise. Also the tables were so close together and I didn't have enough space to move or get out of my seat and this made me feel Cross phobia. I would not recommend this.

We could not hear what the captain say, so that was no point of having, we also say that to the people who worked in the boat. Thay were also nice to give us ordenary sandwich since we had misunderstood the bookin and there ask for plane.

    We thought the sandwiches left a lot to be desired. Some of them only had one small piece of cucumber.

    The surprisingly warm late September afternoon was perfect. The service from the boat's staff was excellent. My request for vegetarian sandwiches had been noted and passed to the staff (this does not happen in most places!). Our table companions were lovely company and we had a brilliant time. Thank you City Cruises.

    Had a lovely afternoon and were very lucky with the weather. The afternoon tea was very good. It's a good way for sightseeing although unfortunately we couldn't hear the commentary.

    Tea was nice and fresh and cruise good but there was NO COMMENTARY which was ridiculous as most people would have expected to learn about the sites we could see and on the website it said there would be a live commentary which never happened- very disappointed with this

    Missed cruise due to traffic snarls. There should have been an alternative way to accommodate us. We paid through our nose for the cruise. Shall put it up in the social media so that others are warned against booking with you.

    We had this experience purchased for us as a gift and we went along with reservations about whether we would enjoy it. I have to admit I was very surprised at how much fun it was. We were with some friends which also added to the enjoyment but we had a thoroughly memorable afternoon. The only thing i was a little disappointed with were the sandwiches, the bread was slightly dry but apart from that we had a great time. We would certainly recommend this experience to anyone considering it.

    ★★

    I am sorry to say it was very disappointing. Good points were, we were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our seats promptly. The seating was comfortable. The lavatories were clean. The sandwiches and cakes were tasty, hot drinks were readily and frequently offered. The prosecco was nice. The female waitress was polite efficient and friendly. Bad points were, the pre ordered drinks were not waiting on our table as I had expected. What is the point of pre ordering if this is not the case. The personal address system was too loud and was pre recorded. The decor was dated. We spent more time passing converted wharf buildings with no commentary than we did passing the sights of London. This could be a million times better with just a little more consideration and effort. A shame.

    Enjoyed the cruise and the sections of river it travelled. The tables inside would have looked nicer with tablecloths and whilst food was adequate, the tea was not very good quality.

    We were looking for something different than the usual crowded sight seeing ships. Additionally it was a birthday present for my mum and we got a great tour with a lovely and caring crew. It was the perfect London experience for us and we can totally recommend it.


  • 17 Sep 2018

    Not good It was easy to book but not good at all we booked our cruise with a voucher I was given for my birthday me and my partner booked a day off work had to travel and pay parking to only find out when we got there the man at the other end of the phone booked us for one in London instead or york even after explaining we wanted York and the voucher was bought for York cruises in big bold letters very very unhappy have recently contacted about this to get a refund and heard nothing back

    Other than table clothes the decor and crockery was utilitarian. The staff were delightful as was the food. The extra orders were delivered at the beginning of the trip. The tiny tea cups were refilled regularly. I had thought there was a commentary on the sites, but I was wrong. I have done other boat trips that had this as part of the trip, so I felt this was lacking.

    We had a lovely afternoon tea cruise . The boat was clean and we were welcomed on board by friendly staff . The commentary on board was very good and is great for anyone who doesn’t know the history of London . The staff in the office were so helpful I rang last minute to ask for a window seat and they managed to sort one so we were very grateful . The sandwiches very the only downfall they were good but not the best if you like plain fillings then maybe mention that when booking other than that very enjoyable

  • 06 Sep 2018

    was brought this as a gift from one of my friends who I don't see a lot.It was our first time experiencing the afternoon Tea Boat tour, I did not like that you had to share a Table with people you did not know because I could not hear half the things my friend was saying because the other people on my table was talking. Also the Staff on the Boat were rude and did not make us feel welcome or comfortable throughout the cruise. Also the tables were so close together and I didn't have enough space to move or get out of my seat and this made me feel Cross phobia. I would not recommend this.
