Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your luncheon cruise sets off from Tower Pier in central London at midday. Make your own way to the pier with plenty of time to board the boat and find your seat in the cozy, indoor saloon. Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of the city shoreline as your cruise begins.

Heading west from Tower Pier, first pass the formidable Tower of London, situated in the modern Square Mile, followed by The Shard—the 95-story pyramid dominates the South Bank skyline. Continue on to Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a historic active theater, and the enormous London Eye. Along the South Bank, witness the bustle of performers, locals, and meandering tourists. Your cruise loops at Westminster, where you get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben before turning around.

As you cruise, indulge in a sumptuous 2-course meal featuring an entree and dessert with coffee and tea. For an added treat, purchase wine, beer, or other non-alcoholic beverages from the onboard bar. After lunch, get some air on the outside deck as your river cruise returns to Tower Pier. Arrive with plenty of time to continue sightseeing (and walk off your hearty meal)!

10/10! Do it, you won’t regret it!
, Nov 2021
We had the most amazing time on the lunch cruise. Great food, amazing views and informative tour! We were a little nervous as we thought it might be choppy but the sailing was very smooth. The sun was shining and the staff were so helpful. The food was delicious, we didn’t have a choice but everything was freshly made and really tasty. We had the best time, and al of us said we will have to do it again sometime. 10/10 would recommend.
Worth the experience

It was calm and romantic in the beginning. The food was good. But it's getting rough at the end. Should slow down when the wave getting stronger.

The whole atmosphere very welcoming, the food was very right for that purpose. Especially having food with no garlic it was wonderful. Hope to use your service again in a near future. Keep up the good work
Good experience, great food and wine.

Good experience - food and wine was very good (and reasonably priced). Attentive staff but not hugely knowledgeable about the boat or the cruise route.
Would definitely recommend
