River Thames Evening Cruise

    What to Expect
    Your journey along the River Thames begins in the evening at Westminster Pier where you'll board the ship. Stroll the open-air deck and help yourself to delicious canapés as you embark on a two-hour float along London’s famous waterway. Then find a seat in the indoor saloon, enjoy live jazz music and admire unobstructed views of passing city landmarks at sunset.

    Heading first past Westminster, you’ll get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben, followed by the illuminated London Eye and Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a gorgeous Elizabethan playhouse that still runs regular performances. Sip on bubbly wine as your boat cruises under London Bridge and past the Tower of London and the monolithic Shard building – London’s tallest building at 1,016 feet (310 meters) in height.

    The final leg of your cruise takes you by Canary Wharf, the Naval College and the striking Cutty Sark clipper ship, one of the remaining three clipper ships from the 19th century. From here, your boat will make its way back to Westminster Pier, where you’ll disembark with plenty of time for dinner or evening activities.

    This tour is a very nice ride on the Thames past big Ben and parliament. Not a bad way to spend a couple of hours if you need to relax and have nothing else on the agenda.

    We took the evening cruise which included sparkling wine and nice snacks. Other drinks were available for purchase. The staff were very nice and seeing London from the water was a nice way to spend our first night. Highly recommend this cruise on City Cruises.

    This cruise is NOT a tour narrated of the River Thames. I would have liked to know what we were seeing on the river bank. The boat is kind of old. There is live music, which is too loud. The weather was not good so everyone sat inside, but there was not enough room for

    Food (nibbles) and entertainment were great. Boat was a bit old but it didn't affect the trip and despite the rain we enjoyed the views of London from the top deck. All in all a great way to spend a couple of hours.
