Sunday Lunch Jazz Cruise on the River Thames

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Select your preferred cruise option and departure time when you book. Then, on the day, make your own way to the appropriate departure pier on the Thames River in central London. 

    Step aboard your comfortable sightseeing boat and absorb the wonderful views as you cruise by top London attractions such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the Tate Modern, and the London Eye. Watch, too, for iconic sights such as Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge and the monumental dome of St Paul’s Cathedral.

    As you take in the sights and river setting, sit down to a delicious 3-course Sunday lunch of classic British dishes, all freshly prepared on board. See the Itinerary for a sample menu. Savor your meal, and while you eat, enjoy the live entertainment courtesy of the onboard jazz band. Lose yourself in enjoyable mainstream and easy-listening classics including Dixieland, smooth jazz and trad jazz numbers — the perfect, light accompaniment to your cruise.

    After around 2.5 hours, your Sunday lunch jazz cruise comes to an end when your boat docks back at the starting pier.
