What you can expect

Dine on a delicious two course lunch whilst taking in London’s waterfront sights with this unique dining experience. The 1hr 45 min cruise departs from Tower, taking you into the heart of London towards Westminster. In the comfortable lounge saloon, surrounded by panoramic windows, you will feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle on the riverbanks. So relax and take in views of the Tower of London, the Shard, vibrant Southbank and many more, all from the comfort of your seat.

Here you will be served a delicious 2-course meal, consisting of a main course of Chicken Supreme and a moreish dessert of triple chocolate truffle cake with raspberry sauce, all washed down with tea or coffee. To accompany your meal, commentary will captivate you with interesting facts about the landmarks drifting past. Once you are finished, head up to the open-air deck to take full advantage of the marvellous views, and photo opportunities!

You will arrive back at Tower Pier at 13:30 refreshed and refuelled, ready for the afternoon ahead!
