132 Reviews

  • Location: London, United Kingdom
  • Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3562DC
Dine in style aboard a luxury sightseeing boat on a 2.5-hour Thames River dinner cruise! Choose to travel aboard the elegant ‘Harmony’ or ‘Symphony’ at one of two different evening times, and then relax to the sounds of live jazz music as your 4-course gourmet dinner is served. Gaze out at the illuminated city sights including Big Ben and the London Eye, and then finish the evening on the Thames River with after-dinner dancing.

Highlights

  • A la carte dinner included
  • Free drinks included
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
Head to Embankment Pier in central London and then board your Thames River night cruise. If you opt for the start time of 7:30pm, travel aboard the Harmony, a beautiful Scandinavian sightseeing boat with a dining saloon and spacious open deck. Alternatively, select the 8pm cruise and board the largest dinner cruise boat in London, the magnificent Symphony. The glass-walled vessel is one of the most luxurious vessels on the Thames, affording passengers with sweeping waterfront views of London.

Pick up a welcome cocktail from the onboard bar, and then take a seat at your table as you head east along the Thames River. Relax while listening to live jazz music, and feast on a sumptuous 4-course meal, served by your waiting staff. See the Itinerary below for a sample menu. Upgrade to the Premier Dinner option if you want a half-bottle of house wine and mineral water included. Drinks are also available from the bar (own expense).

As you eat, gaze out of the window to see the sights of London by night. Pass the Houses of Parliament, bathed in a golden glow, and look to the South Bank to see the trendy Tate Modern museum as well as the London Eye — a legendary city landmark. Glide beneath the Millennium Bridge, featured in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and then admire the sight of Shakespeare’s Globe. Look to the north bank for a glimpse of St Paul’s Cathedral and gaze east to see Tower Bridge illuminated against the dark London sky.

Finish your London dinner-cruise experience dancing to anything from 1960s tunes to modern hits. After 2.5 hours of cruising up and down the Thames River, your experience finishes back at Embankment Pier.

This is a wonderful way to see London when one first arrives. It gives one an idea where they want to go in the next few days. The food was above the top. We enjoyed every morsel.
