The Main Event

Ah, the afternoon tea! The quintessentially British way to while away an afternoon.

Can it be bettered? When combined with a sightseeing river cruise it can!

Introducing the London sightseeing river cruise with afternoon tea - the perfect way to see the sights of London.

You'll board at Tower Pier where your London afternoon tea river cruise will transport you past many of London's iconic riverside landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Shard.

The cruise lasts approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, plenty of time to indulge in your afternoon tea before heading up to the open deck to take in the stunning views and take plenty of photos to remember the day.

Great Reviews

  • Birthday treat

    Was treated to this for my birthday and had a lovely time. The boat trip was great, saw quite a lot from the boat which I wasn't expecting and the food was lovely. It was a great way to spend an afternoon.
