  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    What could be more English or more delightful than an elegant afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames?

    Winter or summer, rain or shine, you’ll enjoy magnificent views of London’s monuments from the huge picture windows of your vessel.

    As you glide along, you’ll be treated to a generous spread of tasty sandwiches, scones with dollops of clotted cream and strawberry jam, traditional cakes and unlimited tea and coffee or soft drinks for kids. Delicious!

    And when you've finished tea, you can always stroll upstairs to take in the 360 degree views of the riverside landmarks.

    This relaxing cruise is the perfect antidote to an early morning shopping spree, or an ideal curtain raiser to an evening at the theatre.

    This tour has some unavailable dates in the month of September. Should the tour not be available on your chosen date, we have an alternative which includes 2-course gourmet lunch, click here for more details >>

    Itinerary

    Combine London sightseeing with a fine old English tradition on the London Afternoon Tea Cruise.

    To join the cruise, make your way to Tower Pier (the nearest tube station is Tower Hill), where you will be welcomed aboard your vessel.

    Embark on a relaxed mini-voyage through the heart of London. This cruise covers the length of the river between Greenwich and Westminster. As you sail along, you’ll be served a scrumptious afternoon tea with finger sandwiches and traditional cakes as well as fluffy scones with jam and cream.

    Unlimited tea and coffee or soft drinks for kids are provided and you can even enjoy a glass of champagne if you are in the mood (extra charges apply).

    When you've finished tea, you can take a stroll on the deck to enjoy the magnificent views.

    The cruise lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes and at the end of the trip, you will be dropped back at Tower Pier.
