Overview

An old proverb says “A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content”, and what better way to spend Sunday than cruising on the River Thames enjoying fabulous food and mellow jazz?

So come along with family and friends and sit in comfort, feasting on superb food while you glide past some of London’s most magnificent monuments including the London Eye, Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe, Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

You can choose from two dining options (subject to availability) – Superior Lunch Cruise and Premier Lunch Cruise. During the leisurely 20-km cruise, you will be served a delicious three-course lunch from an à la carte menu prepared by top-class chefs. With the Premier option, enjoy seating at the window table and you will also be served half a bottle of house wine and mineral water.


As you sail along, a talented band will evoke the atmosphere of a bygone era with mellow music from the golden age of jazz.
