WE HAVE A DIFFERENT VIEW OF A LAZY LUNCH London's Lunch Cruise on the river Thames

 

With good food and great views a Thames Lunch Cruise is both relaxing and rather stimulating.

While you enjoy a delicious two course lunch we'll take you on a relaxed mini voyage through the heart of London. 

Our friendly waiters will serve you a scrumptious meal with a hearty main course, just right for an appetite fanned by river breezes. To accompany your meal our fully stocked bar is certain to have something tempt your palate. And when you've finished your dessert, you can take a stroll on deck to round off your river-day experience.

As you set off the Tower of London and Tower Bridge will be in sight, whether through panoramic windows or from the open upper deck, and you’ll see Big Ben and the London Eye before heading down towards Canary Wharf, with Tower Bridge in view again. 

Your ticket includes:

  • 2-course meal 
  • 1 hour 45 minutes river Cruise
  • Live commentary 
  • Glass of Moët & Chandon (Champagne Package)
 

Cruises last one hour and forty five minutes which gives you plenty of time to enjoy both the view and the company!

    ★★★★★

    My husband and I absolutely loved this cruise, the food was delicious. Found the onboard drinks about the price expected, the wine we had was also delicious. Would've liked a slightly better gluten free pudding though as was a little disappointed to be served fruit salad when my husband had a delicious looking chocolate mousse but that's a minor grumble. Would definitely do another lunch cruise


    17 May 2019

    ★★★★★

    It was well organised, all the staff on board were very pleasant. The food was excellent and the commentary was informative. A very enjoyable experience.


    17 May 2019

    ★★★

    The staff and food were both amazing, I had the vegetarian option and it was delicious. The cruise itself was a bit of a let down. It was a very tight space with a lot people and most groups of two had to share a table with two strangers to fit everyone in. Not ideal for the money that was paid and the tables aren't very big either so it was quite snug. You couldn't really hear the tour recording and the drinks were pretty pricey so over all it the experience came across as quite cheap.

    Had a lovely time food was very pleasant although an alternative to tea & coffee would have been nice as I don’t drink them like peppermint or fruit tea. Service was excellent couldn’t fault it.

    Really impressed with the lunch cruise- the boat was elegantly set up for lunch- it wasn't crowded and they gave one on one attention from seating to the personal goodbye at the end. The food was really really good! Everyone got the same thing but the chicken breast and vegetables were wonderful. The wine was affordable and the whole thing made my Mom and son and I feel really special. I would highly recommend this cruise!

Once on board we received a warm welcome and found the waiting staff very attentive and polite. The meal was very good - we were well impressed. We would definitely recommend this very enjoyable experience with City Cruises . Well worth the cost.

  • 17 Apr 2019

    The cruise was very good. However I had my grandson with me who was given the same meal as me and therefore he didnt eat the chicken with mushroom and white wine sauce


    17 Apr 2019

    ★★★★

    It would have been excellent. The commentary on the cruise was only in English, from the point of view of a foreign visitor this might be a problem. Having taken boat cruise on the Seine only 2 weeks ago commentary there was in several languages


    17 Apr 2019

    ★★★★★

    Comfortable seats, clear view, delicious food, attentive and polite staff. It was a good length of time - we didn't feel rushed. Would have like a little more commentary on the buildings that we passed and less of the music in the background.

    Lovely cruise up the Thames. Just enough commentary without it being intrusive. Staff were fantastic. Food was out of this world amazing


    16 Apr 2019

    ★★★★

    The booking procedure was easy. On arrival at the dock, we were seated without delay, in seats with a good view of the river. The dining lounge was pleasant and the tables attractively laid. The food was actually much better than we had expected! The chicken was very tender and the mushroom sauce delicious. The vegetables could have been cooked for longer - they were very al dente! The dessert was lovely too. The only drawback was that we couldn't hear the commentary over the conversations going on around us. Luckily, we know the river well and learning about the monuments on its shore was not our priority. However, for anyone wanting more information, this would be a disappointment. the waiting staff were very pleasant and helpful. The toilets on board were clean and modern.

    Good food and wine. One small point is that the commentary could only be heard on one side of the boat. But this did not detract from the overall experience for me.


    16 Apr 2019

    ★★★★★

    This was a lovely tranquil cruise down the Thames, The lunch was of a high standard, and the waiting staff were very courteous, and welcoming, you could order drinks and they were all brought to your table, The boat was clean and airy, you had excellent views of all the monuments, and could also go on top deck for views if you wished. A lovely couple of hours well spent.


    16 Apr 2019

    ★★★★

    Cruise is as expected. As an individual with a nut allergy the co chooses not to give you a roll and a very basic fruit salad as a dessert. Not very good considering price. On day we sailed there was little white wine bottle choice.

    Our daughter bought it for us as a xmas present so we saved it and used it for our wedding anniversary in April. The lunch cruise was wonderful from start to finish. The waiter assigned to us was very professional and the 2 course meal was superb. Thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend it.

    Really impressed with the lunch cruise- the boat was elegantly set up for lunch- it wasn't crowded and they gave one on one attention from seating to the personal goodbye at the end. The food was really really good! Everyone got the same thing but the chicken breast and vegetables were wonderful. The wine was affordable and the whole thing made my Mom and son and I feel really special. I would highly recommend this cruise!

    It was a fantastic cruise and meal. Very nice way to see the city and they were able to transfer my tickets to different days due to my own mistake in booking.

    Unfortunately due to heavy traffic on route on the day, we were late for the given departure time. The boat waited for us, which we were very grateful for. Once on board we received a warm welcome and found the waiting staff very attentive and polite. The meal was very good - we were well impressed. We would definitely recommend this very enjoyable experience with City Cruises . Well worth the cost.

    The cruise was very good. However I had my grandson with me who was given the same meal as me and therefore he didnt eat the chicken with mushroom and white wine sauce


  • 17 Apr 2019

    It would have been excellent. The commentary on the cruise was only in English, from the point of view of a foreign visitor this might be a problem. Having taken boat cruise on the Seine only 2 weeks ago commentary there was in several languages

    Comfortable seats, clear view, delicious food, attentive and polite staff. It was a good length of time - we didn't feel rushed. Would have like a little more commentary on the buildings that we passed and less of the music in the background.

    Lovely cruise up the Thames. Just enough commentary without it being intrusive. Staff were fantastic. Food was out of this world amazing

    ★★★★

    The booking procedure was easy. On arrival at the dock, we were seated without delay, in seats with a good view of the river. The dining lounge was pleasant and the tables attractively laid. The food was actually much better than we had expected! The chicken was very tender and the mushroom sauce delicious. The vegetables could have been cooked for longer - they were very al dente! The dessert was lovely too. The only drawback was that we couldn't hear the commentary over the conversations going on around us. Luckily, we know the river well and learning about the monuments on its shore was not our priority. However, for anyone wanting more information, this would be a disappointment. the waiting staff were very pleasant and helpful. The toilets on board were clean and modern.

    Good food and wine. One small point is that the commentary could only be heard on one side of the boat. But this did not detract from the overall experience for me.

    This was a lovely tranquil cruise down the Thames, The lunch was of a high standard, and the waiting staff were very courteous, and welcoming, you could order drinks and they were all brought to your table, The boat was clean and airy, you had excellent views of all the monuments, and could also go on top deck for views if you wished. A lovely couple of hours well spent.

    Cruise is as expected. As an individual with a nut allergy the co chooses not to give you a roll and a very basic fruit salad as a dessert. Not very good considering price. On day we sailed there was little white wine bottle choice.
