All aboard your vessel for panoramic cruise dining

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 River Thames in London


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 you 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 actually on and over the River Thames too. On your cruise you'll sail under Tower Bridge and London Bridge to name but two and see HMS Belfast  afloat. You’ll even be able to check out the Thames Flood Barrier, which is quite a feat of marine engineering. And all whilst you are tucking into a tasty meal.

A cruise departure for any occasion

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. But there’s no denying seeing the sights from the water once the sun has set on an evening dinner cruise departure is really rather special too, as you can see from this Thames river cruise video onboard the MS Symphony.

For those who want an 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? It’s still the Thames, but this time it’s more countrified with castles and impressive houses lining the river bank.
