Thames River Sightseeing Cruise with Afternoon Tea
US$42.56 per adult
Overview
Make the most of your time in London by combining tradition with sightseeing on this afternoon tea cruise. See the capital's iconic sights—the Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and more—while indulging in the British tradition of afternoon tea. Take advantage of picture-perfect views from the water while savoring scones, sandwiches, cakes, and, of course, tea. If you fancy something stronger, visit the onboard bar.
What to Expect
Make your way to Tower Pier to board your cruise. Settle into the cozy, indoor salon and get ready for the quintessential London experience.

Heading west, you'll first pass the infamous Tower of London, known for its dark history, then, in contrast, the sparkling contemporary architecture of the glass Shard building. Continue to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and the enormous ferris wheel, the London Eye. Enjoy people-watching along the South Bank, a favored hangout for locals, tourists, skaters, and entertainers. Your cruise loops around at Westminster where you get excellent views of the Gothic-style Houses of Parliament and iconic Big Ben before heading back.

Along the way, indulge in British teatime favorites, including scones spread with jam and cream, dainty finger sandwiches, cakes, tea, and coffee. You can even toast the evening with a glass of Champagne from the bar (own expense).

The tour concludes back at Tower Pier.

Friendly and efficient staff

We really enjoyed our afternoon tea and cruise. The tables were allocated beforehand so you don't get a choice of where you want to sit, although as there were a couple of spare tables for 2, we were allowed to move to one of those....More

Good but not for 3!

Lovely boat, great customer service, delicious food, no shortage of tea/coffee. Overall this was a lovely experience and if you are a group with even numbers then it would be perfect. The reason for only 3 stars is that we were a group of three...More
