WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF LAST ORDERS London's Evening Cruise on the river Thames

 

Sail off into the evening while the rest of the world goes by.

That's the fun of an evening cruise on the Thames! You will see great views of London's riverside landmarks and enjoy the unique atmosphere of a trip through the heart of central London – on a boat.

As you board a waiter will give you a welcome glass of fizz and you will hear a live performer singing contemporary music: pop, rock, swing and funk.

There's space to unwind and circulate; and tuck into some tasty nibbles. Perhaps you fancy something from the fully stocked bar? It offers a variety of drinks (soft and otherwise), including more bubbles, Pimms, G&T and more.

You can choose between being on the open-air upstairs deck or in the saloon, which has big windows.

Your ticket includes:

  • Sparkling wine or soft drink on arrival
  • A selection of cold canapés served throughout the evening
  • Live music performer
  • 2 hour river Cruise

Evening Cruise

    The only way this cruise could be improved is with a commentary on the buildings that were seen as we cruised, maybe not a indepth but pointing out the new and important buildings


    18 May 2019

    A must-do for every Londoner or guest of the capital


    17 May 2019

    It was a very relaxing experience, with the singer and music added a very nice feel, nice wine and food


  • 17 May 2019

    ★★

    Not a great experience. Food was ordinary and cold, the boat was very old, windows dirty so we couldn't enjoy the view. The main room was loaded with too many ugly chairs and unnecessary furniture. The ambience was rather poor. Staff was friendly though.


    17 May 2019

    ★★★★★

    Everything was perfect, from the moment of booking until the end of the cruise. Friendly staff on the boat, highly recommend it to anyone. The only bad side was the cloudy weather and the rain at the end :)

    09 May 2019

    ★★★

    So, where do I start? The lady that greeted us on the pier was really friendly and pleasant. When the boat arrived, there was a look of horror on everyone's faces. Bearing in mind, whilst waiting on the pier, we say all these new boats come and go, this old looking boat sided up to the dock and we boarded (reluctantly). The boat looked old and tired, the carpet was dated and the chairs were no better. After setting off up river, we returned to the dock much to everyone's amazement. When we set off the 2nd time, we did go up river and kept an eye out for the sites, whiich was nice. I have broken it down to help prospective customers, Boat - looks old but functions, not overly great but it was the talking point for everyone! Canapes - cold, tasteless in places and slow to arrive. When they did most people took only 1 because it wasn't explained you could have more if you wanted. Drinks - my goodness.... expensive, book a couple before going on board. A drinks a drink. The Cruise up and down the river.... wonderful !!! Looking past everything else, the views were really good.

    Cruise takes you by all the sights, fun to view from another perspective. Mild weather made the upper deck perfect for enjoying the evening.


    01 May 2019

    ★★

    Very small and cramped boat, windows were very dirty, people crammed in: the poor man next to me had requested gluten free canapés and was served tiny bread and vegetable rounds all exactly the same throughout the cruise. Our canapés were nice but would have been greatly improved by being heated through. Very disappointed


    01 May 2019

    I was disappointed with the state of the boat which was tatty and scruffy looking. No cushions on upper deck seating. A lot of the downstairs window panels were blown and difficult to see out of. The canapés were late being passed around and the session singer was dreadful and far too loud fir the downstairs deck.


  • 01 May 2019

    ★★★★

    A good amount of canapes but a bit slow, as they rushed the service at the end as more canapés to be handed out that they hadn't. But overall it was a great experience and a great way to spend your evening.


    30 Apr 2019

    ★★★★

    Nice evening. Entertainment was good


    30 Apr 2019

    ★★★★

    The canapes offered were cold and few, could have been better and more per person. When we did not eat a certain item due to the meat, I feel that we should have been offered more of another. Some of the waiting staff were rather glum and didn't make one feel valued.

    Excellent cruise, staff very attentive and service good. The entertainment, a guitarist/singer, was superb. Welcome glass of fizz when boarding with canapes served during the cruise - all of the canapes are cold but they are tasty. Only criticism is that there is no commentary - that would complete the experience.

    ★★★★

    We enjoyed the entertainer. The canapes were excellent, so much so we couldn't eat dinner afterwards. Staff were polite and helpful.


    26 Mar 2019

    ★★★★★

    The views were lovely, staff helpful, live music very relaxing and good solo singer, good bar available! The one criticism I would make is that if you sit downstairs undercover, and at the front of the boat in the seats which would suggest you are going to get the best view, the front windows steam up horrendously soon after setting off. It’s like sailing into a thick fog! All the side windows are fine so it’s actually better to sit at the tables - bit of a design fault I would suggest! Admittedly it was a cold evening but probably nothing a few fan heaters placed strategically at the front couldn’t have taken care of- it did annoy me and we moved to a table. I heard several people complaining to staff about it. Otherwise I enjoyed it, and the views from the top deck were great. No commentary, so don’t expect to learn anything about London or the River Thames from it! Just a nice, relaxing riverboat cruise.


    26 Mar 2019

    ★★★★

    An enjoyable cruise with great views of Riverside London buildings. Service from staff was friendly and efficient. We were disappointed to be refused hot drinks at the bar even though these were advertised on the price list displayed.


    26 Mar 2019

    ★★★★

    Relaxing, well organised, comfortable. Live guitarist was amazing. The only thing that let the experience down was the cold canopes- would have been much nicer hot but appreciate there may not have been facility to heat these up.

    It was easy to reserve and pay for the evening cruise. And the info received after the purchase was helpful and exhaustive.


  • 12 Mar 2019

    ★★★★

    We were looking forward to a great evening cruise on the Thames. The weather was fantastic for the time of year and perfect for the evening. Boarding the boat was good and the welcome drink was served well. We headed off from Westminster pier towards the West, which isn't really that exciting once past the Houses of Parliament, nice to see Chelsea Bridge, which is where we turned round to head back East. I thought we may head further down river than just past Tower Bridge but I suppose with only 2 hours it wouldn't be possible to get all the way to Canary Wharf and back. If there was a negative it was the canapes. They were cold and not very appetising to be honest. Could have done with being warmed up.


    12 Mar 2019

    ★★★★★

    The cruise itself is beautiful. The complimentary wine the service is all amazing not to mention the view. Would definitely do again


    12 Mar 2019

    ★★★★

    Only spoilt by the dreadful weather.


    12 Mar 2019

    ★★★★★

    We were well looked after from start to finish! Welcomed onto the boat with a glass of bubbly, were fed more canapes than you can imagine, and listened to the most amazing live singer. Such a romantic night especially with the iconic scenery of London from the Thames (Tower Bridge, The Shard, Houses of Parliament etc. all lit up). Would 100% do again myself, or gift to someone else. A lovely, lovely evening and we both came away feeling incredibly happy and incredibly full!


    11 Mar 2019

    Fantastic night, staff were lovely, Daniel the singer was brilliant prosecco & canapés were lovely and plentiful and such a special time with all the buildings and bridges lite up on the river.

    ★★★★★

    The cruise was relaxing with good music. Though a bit crowded, but you can choose to go up and take good pictures. It is all about sightseeing and experience London at night from far. If it is getting cold, you can always go inside the cruise where music is played and a good artist entertaining the audience


    22 Feb 2019

    ★★★★★

    The cruise was excellent and very good value in January. It was lovely to see London's landmarks illuminated. The musician, however, although very good, played rather downbeat songs; not quite what you want for a birthday celebration or even a holiday excursion.

    Unfortunately it was a very cold and wet night which of course is nobody’s fault. I was disappointed the boat didn’t go to Canary Wharf. The live music and the complimentary wine was good but the canapés and the cocktails we purchased were of poor quality. The staff were friendly.


    07 Feb 2019

    A very calm night on the river with very helpful staff and incredible music! Being a Londoner I was amazed at all the sights I’ve never seen at night before and this was the perfect way of doing it.. my partner and I spent the whole evening singing along to the live music and holding hands across the table from each other

    ★★★

    Lovely smooth ride on the Thames with cosy indoor lower deck and open upper deck for great views .We enjoyed our sparkling wine but the canapés (from M&S? ) were distributed so irregularly and inefficiently that we gave up on them . The musician was good but so loud we had to raise our voices to have a conversation, even though we were at the other end of the boat. The couple next to us were from the States and we're hoping for information about the locations we were passing.


    29 Dec 2018

    Enjoyed the views of London with all the lights, also very good musician and the fact that you catered for my gluten free food needs. Well done.

    27 Nov 2018

    We cruised between Albert Bridge and just beyond Tower Bridge on a cold dark November night. The boat was lovely and warm inside and not full, so moving around was easy. The singer was good and the views spectacular, especially seeing the Shard alongside Tower Bridge as the boat turned. Food was OK. I would have like a little more info on the sights as we passed them but our phone app did help.

    A lovely idea for a relaxed evening out and a different way to see some of London. Nice to relax with a glass of wine, listen to the music and have a bite to eat while the lights of London landmarks pass you by

    We enjoyed the entertainer. The canapes were excellent, so much so we couldn't eat dinner afterwards. Staff were polite and helpful.

    The views were lovely, staff helpful, live music very relaxing and good solo singer, good bar available! The one criticism I would make is that if you sit downstairs undercover, and at the front of the boat in the seats which would suggest you are going to get the best view, the front windows steam up horrendously soon after setting off. It’s like sailing into a thick fog! All the side windows are fine so it’s actually better to sit at the tables - bit of a design fault I would suggest! Admittedly it was a cold evening but probably nothing a few fan heaters placed strategically at the front couldn’t have taken care of- it did annoy me and we moved to a table. I heard several people complaining to staff about it. Otherwise I enjoyed it, and the views from the top deck were great. No commentary, so don’t expect to learn anything about London or the River Thames from it! Just a nice, relaxing riverboat cruise.

    An enjoyable cruise with great views of Riverside London buildings. Service from staff was friendly and efficient. We were disappointed to be refused hot drinks at the bar even though these were advertised on the price list displayed.

    Relaxing, well organised, comfortable. Live guitarist was amazing. The only thing that let the experience down was the cold canopes- would have been much nicer hot but appreciate there may not have been facility to heat these up.

    We were looking forward to a great evening cruise on the Thames. The weather was fantastic for the time of year and perfect for the evening. Boarding the boat was good and the welcome drink was served well. We headed off from Westminster pier towards the West, which isn't really that exciting once past the Houses of Parliament, nice to see Chelsea Bridge, which is where we turned round to head back East. I thought we may head further down river than just past Tower Bridge but I suppose with only 2 hours it wouldn't be possible to get all the way to Canary Wharf and back. If there was a negative it was the canapes. They were cold and not very appetising to be honest. Could have done with being warmed up.

    We were well looked after from start to finish! Welcomed onto the boat with a glass of bubbly, were fed more canapes than you can imagine, and listened to the most amazing live singer. Such a romantic night especially with the iconic scenery of London from the Thames (Tower Bridge, The Shard, Houses of Parliament etc. all lit up). Would 100% do again myself, or gift to someone else. A lovely, lovely evening and we both came away feeling incredibly happy and incredibly full!

    The cruise was relaxing with good music. Though a bit crowded, but you can choose to go up and take good pictures. It is all about sightseeing and experience London at night from far. If it is getting cold, you can always go inside the cruise where music is played and a good artist entertaining the audience


  • 22 Feb 2019

    ★★★★★

    The cruise was excellent and very good value in January. It was lovely to see London's landmarks illuminated. The musician, however, although very good, played rather downbeat songs; not quite what you want for a birthday celebration or even a holiday excursion.

    Unfortunately it was a very cold and wet night which of course is nobody’s fault. I was disappointed the boat didn’t go to Canary Wharf. The live music and the complimentary wine was good but the canapés and the cocktails we purchased were of poor quality. The staff were friendly.

    A very calm night on the river with very helpful staff and incredible music! Being a Londoner I was amazed at all the sights I’ve never seen at night before and this was the perfect way of doing it.. my partner and I spent the whole evening singing along to the live music and holding hands across the table from each other

    Lovely smooth ride on the Thames with cosy indoor lower deck and open upper deck for great views .We enjoyed our sparkling wine but the canapés (from M&S? ) were distributed so irregularly and inefficiently that we gave up on them . The musician was good but so loud we had to raise our voices to have a conversation, even though we were at the other end of the boat. The couple next to us were from the States and we're hoping for information about the locations we were passing.

    I booked this cruise for my birthday. I went on a Saturday. I took my children with me. We spent the two hours on the top deck. It was a cold night. However, the beautiful sights worked wonders. So ralaxing. I enjoyed the experience and will go again.

    We cruised between Albert Bridge and just beyond Tower Bridge on a cold dark November night. The boat was lovely and warm inside and not full, so moving around was easy. The singer was good and the views spectacular, especially seeing the Shard alongside Tower Bridge as the boat turned. Food was OK. I would have like a little more info on the sights as we passed them but our phone app did help.
