Time to set sail on a Thames river cruise so you can glide along the waterways of the capital and see some of London's most striking historical and modern landmarks from the water. As well as the sightseeing, you will be 'wined and dined' on your cruise. We have lunchtime departures, afternoon voyages and dinner cruises where top notch service from the boat's crew combines with fresh, seasonal produce cooked onboard in the galley kitchens.

Afternoon outings are informal and friendly, with our luncheon departures making for a superb family day out, whilst the very posh evening dinner cruises will inspire you to get on your glad rags and go glam for the evening. Whichever you choose it's all about fresh, seasonal produce, great onboard service and superb views without having to move an inch! Alternative IntotheBlue gift suggestions in our main "Gift Ideas" section. Read more...

As you step off the pier onto the deck of the boat and the captain greets you along with his crew, you'll get the feeling this Thames river cruise is going to be rather special. Everyone looks so smart, with the waiting staff in black with monogrammed aprons and the sailing crew in their crisp white shirts and starched collars. Welcome to the world of evening river cruising along our very own Thames.

What is extraordinary about these excursions is the view. The capital looks so different when you see it from the water. On the normal commute you sit dozing off on the bus or rush around on the underground, never really taking (or having) time to look at our surroundings. By gently gliding along the Thames you can sit back, relax and watch as the sights go right past your panoramic window. There's the Tower of London, the wonderful Tate Modern, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral and a whole lot more.

As well as the landmark buildings on the shore, there are some fascinating things to see on and over the River Thames too. On your cruise you'll glide under Tower Bridge and London Bridge to name but two, see HMS Belfast and even be able to check out the Thames Flood Barrier, which is quite a feat of marine engineering, all whilst you are tucking into a tasty meal.

If you're wondering which type of dining cruise to go for, we can highly recommend a luncheon cruise if you want the trip to be part of a day out in London that might also include some more on-shore sightseeing and shopping. These voyages are more informal and relaxed than the dinner cruises, but the itinerary for the boat is the same. For those who want all singing and dancing experience on the Thames, how about the showboat cruises where your vessel is transformed into a floating disco? Or if you prefer a little bit of laid back jazz, try the Sunday afternoon sailings.

Then there are the cruises with added extras such as tickets for the London Eye or the The Shard in addition to your cruise and meal to create an all-encompassing Thames-based package. And if you want something different to the Thames river cruise, how about heading to scholarly Oxford for a journey on the River Thames there?
