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 small 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, mini pastries & scones with clotted cream and jam
  • As much tea and coffee as you want
  • 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.
