The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River
From $104.34
See a different side to London on an evening dinner cruise on the Thames River—the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. Tick off more landmarks in less time on a sightseeing showboat and admire the capital at night, when it’s illuminated and at its most magical. Receive a glass of sparkling wine when boarding the boat and enjoy a 4-course meal of British classics, accompanied by live cabaret music and a half bottle of wine.
What to Expect

After making your own way to a departure pier in central London, board a sightseeing showboat and begin your cruise on the Thames River.

Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine in the lounge saloon; soak up views of London illuminated by night; and then settle into your seat at a dining table. As you cruise past landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye, feast on a 4-course meal featuring classic British dishes such as roasted chicken and smoked salmon.

Following dinner, you’ll have the opportunity to hit the dance floor and enjoy songs inspired by West End musicals. Your Thames River tour concludes after a substantial time on the water.

Positives, but the food was a huge negative!

The views were terrific, but unfortunately the food did not meet expectations. In fact, we were unsure what meat the entree was. We thought the singer was excellent, but the volume was excessive. Her voice carried and did not need more amplification. There were four...More

The musical performance was the icing on the cake of this evening cruise.

Getting to see the sights from a boat on the Thames at night was a highlight of London visit. Our waiter was super attentive and offered good suggestions, like the best place up top of the boat to take photos.
