Celebrate Christmas in style with a cruise along the river Thames!

Christmas comes but once a year and, as ever, there are good times to be had on the river, from family fun and sightseeing to party boats and merriment or traditional lunch and sightseeing on Christmas Day itself.

All our cruises match a seasonal flavour with great views of the river and its landmarks.

This year, we're really pushing the boat out (terrible pun intended) with our Christmas line-up. In the run-up to Christmas, you can take your kids to Sail with Santa, or sign up for Yuletide merriment at lunchtime or on a night-time cruise.


Dinner is still relaxed but a now a little more upbeat in tone – as the “night out or day-out” feel combines with night/day-time illuminations, a DJ,  Christmas tunes, and dancing shoes (with you in them).


Lunch is a relaxed affair that comes with great views to complement a live singer, Yuletide music, and a little disco dancing.


Christmas Day

We are one of the few London attractions to open on Christmas Day.

Christmas Day traditional lunch cruise from £99
Four courses of deliciousness will be served to you on the River Thames in a distinctly Yuletide atmosphere. 

Christmas Day sightseeing cruise from £10
Christmas day cruises are not standard sightseeing trips – so snap up a ticket before they all go.
