The best night in town is on a Thames dinner cruise!

Wine, dine and dance on this great dinner cruise on the Thames. See spectacular views of London’s iconic sights including the magnificent London Eye, Houses of Parliament and Tower Bridge whilst enjoying show songs and top hits sung by a live performer.
Your ticket for this cruise is including:

  • A three-hour river cruise

  • A delicious four-course meal

  • Welcome drink on arrival (included in all ticket types)

  • Live performer and dancing till late (due to government guidelines live performers will not be available until further notice)

  • ​Background music will be played during the cruise

  • Half bottle of wine per guest or upgrade to Moët and Chandon package for two


Stunning views are on the menu too during our river trips on the Thames, as the inky-dark night along great vistas of riverscape gives way to the spectacular lighting of Thames-side buildings and the recently lit bridges as part of the Illuminated River project. So, tuck into a delicious four-course dinner on a boat in London and sip on your glass of sparkling wine whilst admiring London’s most dazzling scenes.
