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.

    Excellent afternoon tea, easy to board the boat. However, the tour guide information was far to quiet to hear over other guests which meant we didn't learn anything about what we saw. Also, staff were not overly attentive and it took a long time to get our drinks.

    The weather wasn't very kind but it was lovely and cosy inside, the tea and coffee was plentiful and the food was lovely. Staff very attentive and we had the option to go outside, which we did briefly and London looked beautiful in the dark. We went late afternoon at dusk.


  • 13 Dec 2018

    ★★★★★

    A very pleasant cruise on the Thames. Polite staff, good food. Nicely decorated boat for Christmas. The only criticism is that while the safety announcement was being done, we couldn't hear anything except the music that was playing. I think that the music should have been turned off for that time.


    13 Dec 2018

    ★★★

    The afternoon tea cruise was not what I had expected. If you have any dietary requirements or want plain sandwiches for kids or fussy eaters, then make sure you order in advance as they don’t carry any spares. Tables and chairs are fixed in place and are quite close together. Only one type of tea available. It was loud. If you are looking for a romantic afternoon out, this is not it. If you want a great afternoon tea, then go somewhere else. This is average at best.

    Great cruise and afternoon tea but a shame the customer service on the pier was poor, not very helpful, dismissive


    19 Nov 2018

    ★★★★

    Food and service was good (although we were waiting quite some time for coffee to be served). However, the commentary left a lot to be desired- the sound quality was very poor and very loud! It was also very rambling and somewhat random at times- overall impression was that it was quite unprofessional and incoherent! Didn’t spoil the experience but certainly didn’t add to it.

    Côté fenêtres, ce sont des tables pour deux. Nous avons donc pu profiter d'une agréable vue, ma fille et moi, malgré le fait de n'avoir absolument rien compris aux quelques commentaires sûrement descriptifs de ce que nous avons vu. Les sandwiches et scones étaient bons, les petites pâtisseries étaient sans doute + françaises qu'anglaises... Le personnel était correct même si débordés. Et le thé m'a été servi à volonté. Le meilleur était pour la fin : à 17h début novembre, le soleil se couche et nous avons pu avoir un point de vue magnifique sur le towerbridge juste avant de débarquer. Un souvenir inoubliable.

    Staff were pleasant and kept replenishing the tea.

    The Thames Afternoon Tea Cruise for Two was well run and very enjoyable. An excellent cruise on the "Millennium City" all the way from Tower Pier to just past the “London Peace Pagoda” in Battersea Park, then back. A good selection of freshly made sandwiches with tasty fillings, finished off with scone and jam plus small bite sized cakes - petit fours. Also, copious supply of tea and coffee included. Good range of alcoholic beverages and soft drinks available if you pay extra. All in all a very enjoyable experience.


    14 Nov 2018

    ★★

    Could hear the information that was govern on the tour guide , was muffled and distorted. Food was very bland . Although staff were nice and helpful.

    The cruise is a very nice and relaxing experience to enjoy with family and friends


    05 Nov 2018

    ★★★★★

    I had the vegetarian option and my daughter had the plain option, both were great. The only thing we were disappointed with and seems silly to comment on, but a choice of scone would have suited better as not everyone eats fruit scones!


    04 Nov 2018

    ★★★★★

    It was so lovely even though it was a very rainy day so we didn't go on the top deck . The staff on board were very nice and friendly . The sandwiches wasn't to our take but you can't please everyone . The scones were amazing . We will definitely return in the new year . Thankyou to all of you .

    Not the biggest or best afternoon tea .. some fruit teas or different coffees would have been better. Maybe even make yourself Not enough sandwiches and cakes not great


    03 Nov 2018

    A good afternoon tea but could be a little better - no crusts on sandwiches and some cakes as well as pastries - otherwise very good and no complaints.

    Blue sky, not too hot. Sat in the window seats. My wife doesn't eat sandwiches so she ate most of the cakes. But i loved the sandwiches especially the salmon ones.

    I really enjoyed the tea, the salmon sandwich surprised me, because I thought it was tomatoe. But that was my mistake. The tea was yummy as were the treats.


    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    Nice way to see a different view of London in relaxing surroundings and enjoying a cup of tea and ample sandwiches and cakes. Getting for half price by booking in day was good.


    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Disappointing. No table cloths. Tea to weak would have been better made in teapots for each table to allow to brew. Small cakes were tastless. How ever sandwiches were nice & scones but not enough for a table of 4. Commentary to loud, need nice background music.


    22 Oct 2018

    Good experience, good quality for money


    22 Oct 2018

  • 22 Oct 2018

    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    I took my granddaughter with me , she does not drink tea and I had to pay for an apple juice for her despite me paying the adult rate of £37 each . I think that each table should have its own teapot , I had to wait a good while to receive my first cup of tea as orders and serving of wine took precedence over serving of tea . Also only English tea was offered , no choice of tea . The selection of cakes was poor in variety , size and quality. Sandwiches were good . Staff good , boat trip good even on a rainy day .


    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    Very good, friendly service. We had requested ‘no egg’ which was dealt with, and a window seat, which we got. The food was lovely and tea and coffee was free flowing.


    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    Having done this before we knew what to expect and it was almost the same and very enjoyable it was too. The staff/service and food were all very good. However there was no commentary not that that mattered too much as the sites are superb, but the boat did stop for no apparent reason mid stream on the way to the Westminster end ( no explanation given?) Also the boat didn't go as far as before stopping well short of the Houses of Parliament and the London eye, (again for no apparent reason?) so that was a little disappointing, also we spent quite a few minutes waiting on the dock side before leaving thus the actual journey was cut short time wise by nearly ten minutes, (again no reason given)? But overall it's a pleasant way to spend an hour or so on the Thames with tea and sarnies.


    22 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Sandwiches weren’t very inspiring and little flavour


    18 Oct 2018

    ★★

    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.

    The Thames Afternoon Tea Cruise for Two was well run and very enjoyable. An excellent cruise on the "Millennium City" all the way from Tower Pier to just past the “London Peace Pagoda” in Battersea Park, then back. A good selection of freshly made sandwiches with tasty fillings, finished off with scone and jam plus small bite sized cakes - petit fours. Also, copious supply of tea and coffee included. Good range of alcoholic beverages and soft drinks available if you pay extra. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

    Could hear the information that was govern on the tour guide , was muffled and distorted. Food was very bland . Although staff were nice and helpful.

    The price for what you receive is ok. My kids did not have anything to drink since they do not drink coffee or tea, I had to buy them a drink.

    I had the vegetarian option and my daughter had the plain option, both were great. The only thing we were disappointed with and seems silly to comment on, but a choice of scone would have suited better as not everyone eats fruit scones!

    It was so lovely even though it was a very rainy day so we didn't go on the top deck . The staff on board were very nice and friendly . The sandwiches wasn't to our take but you can't please everyone . The scones were amazing . We will definitely return in the new year . Thankyou to all of you .

    Not the biggest or best afternoon tea .. some fruit teas or different coffees would have been better. Maybe even make yourself Not enough sandwiches and cakes not great

    A good afternoon tea but could be a little better - no crusts on sandwiches and some cakes as well as pastries - otherwise very good and no complaints.

    Blue sky, not too hot. Sat in the window seats. My wife doesn't eat sandwiches so she ate most of the cakes. But i loved the sandwiches especially the salmon ones.

    I really enjoyed the tea, the salmon sandwich surprised me, because I thought it was tomatoe. But that was my mistake. The tea was yummy as were the treats.

    ★★★★

    Nice way to see a different view of London in relaxing surroundings and enjoying a cup of tea and ample sandwiches and cakes. Getting for half price by booking in day was good.


  • 22 Oct 2018

    ★★★

    Disappointing. No table cloths. Tea to weak would have been better made in teapots for each table to allow to brew. Small cakes were tastless. How ever sandwiches were nice & scones but not enough for a table of 4. Commentary to loud, need nice background music.

    ★★★

    I took my granddaughter with me , she does not drink tea and I had to pay for an apple juice for her despite me paying the adult rate of £37 each . I think that each table should have its own teapot , I had to wait a good while to receive my first cup of tea as orders and serving of wine took precedence over serving of tea . Also only English tea was offered , no choice of tea . The selection of cakes was poor in variety , size and quality. Sandwiches were good . Staff good , boat trip good even on a rainy day .

    Very good, friendly service. We had requested ‘no egg’ which was dealt with, and a window seat, which we got. The food was lovely and tea and coffee was free flowing.


  • 22 Oct 2018

    ★★★★

    Having done this before we knew what to expect and it was almost the same and very enjoyable it was too. The staff/service and food were all very good. However there was no commentary not that that mattered too much as the sites are superb, but the boat did stop for no apparent reason mid stream on the way to the Westminster end ( no explanation given?) Also the boat didn't go as far as before stopping well short of the Houses of Parliament and the London eye, (again for no apparent reason?) so that was a little disappointing, also we spent quite a few minutes waiting on the dock side before leaving thus the actual journey was cut short time wise by nearly ten minutes, (again no reason given)? But overall it's a pleasant way to spend an hour or so on the Thames with tea and sarnies.

    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.
