  • Overview & Itinerary


    Enjoy a magical night-time cruise through the heart of London! Wine and dine in style as you glide past the city’s most famous landmarks.

    The fun starts the moment you board, with a welcoming glass of sparkling wine. As the boat slips its moorings, friendly staff will begin to serve the first of four courses of delicious gourmet food.

    Look out at the glittering lights and spectacular monuments. Shortly after passing beneath world-famous Tower Bridge, you’ll be onto the main course and perhaps enjoying another glass of wine from your complimentary half bottle.

    Show songs and top hits sung live by a talented singer will accompany the meal. After dinner you can hit the dance floor, or take a romantic stroll on deck. You’ll wish the evening would never end!

    The London Showboat Dinner Cruise is the perfect way to spend an evening.

    To join the fun, make your way to Westminster Pier where you will be welcomed aboard the London Showboat with a glass of sparkling wine.

    You will then be served a four-course meal, with a choice of a half bottle of red or white wine included. (For sample menu see the Additional Information section on this website.) During your cruise, live performers will entertain you with a medley of hit songs.

    Your cruise, which takes around three and a half hours, heads downriver, passing Canary Wharf and Greenwich, arriving at the Thames Barrier in time for dessert and coffee.

    As the boat turns for home, your singer starts the second set. Now it’s time to hit the dance floor, enjoy an after-dinner drink from the bar or head upstairs to the open air deck for the best views of all. The cruise ends back at Westminster Pier at approximately 10:45pm.
