Would highly recommend the london showboat cruise. A relaxing dinner cruise up the Thames. On arrival guests are welcomed with a glass of prosecco. Delicious four course meal with great entertainment. Half a bottle of wine per guest included in the price. Guests can listen to a singer as they enjoy their meal and there is the opportunity to get... More

My birthday treat and was great fun but I have to say that if the instructions are from dock 2 and and it is really dock B then this confusion could easily be avoided! 1st time I have done anything like this and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and service. The singer was good with a good selection... More

We have been on the London Showboat several times now, usually with a voucher which makes it even better value. Although it's mass catering it comes up really appealing and is always good quality. There isn't really a choice and I think we must have had the same menu every time! A glass of fizz on arrival, smiling crew to... More

When we arrived on board the staff were amazing, really happy and welcoming and we were offered a glass of fizz which was lovely.  However- to our disappointment we were not allowed to chose where we wanted to sit- the seats were pre chosen. I do completely understand this as I believe it would make it easier for guests with... More

This trip was worth every penny - the staff/crew genuinely made you feel welcome - nothing too much trouble and very smart and efficient. The boat itself was spotless. The food was delicious and was served at the correct temperature ( something i thought may not actually be - on a boat ! ) The entertainment was really good (... More

We took this cruise along the Thames at Night, the food was superb as was the views as London went from Daylight to night time, the staff were exceptional, the service could not be faulted, the singer was perfect & included the guest into her performance.

The best night in town is on the river! A three-and-a-half-hour cruise from Westminster Pier in central London down the River Thames towards Canary Wharf and the Thames Barrier with welcome drink, four-course dinner, live singer and dancing. You'll wish the evening would never end.

The boat departs 7.45Pm from Monday to Sunday (except Christmas Day 25th December and New Year's Eve 31st December) throughout the year.
