What Can I Expect
Glittering lights and all the sights on a Thames Night Cruise! Sail this famous river in the evening and enjoy either a sundowner cruise or the full joy of London lit up, whilst sipping drinks and nibbling on canapés for a two-hour voyage along one of the most famous rivers in the world.
Westminster Pier is the departure point for this illuminated soiree on the water. We could say it's like a moving pub, but it's much more sophisticated than that. The uniformed crew will welcome you aboard and then, if you're like us, you'll want to explore every corner of this magnificent sightseeing boat. The main saloon boasts ambient lighting lighting up the sitting areas and bar.
If it's a clear night, there's no better place to be than outside. These superb modern vessels on the Thames all have resplendent top decks with panoramic views of the night's moving backdrop that is London as the boat heads smoothly along the waterway, cruising at a relaxing pace to give you plenty of time to drink in the vistas, take photos, feel the fresh air and hear the sounds of the city. There's something really quite unique about seeing the city after dark from the water.
When the night chill comes, head back below deck to carry on enjoying the cruise and gaze out at the Thames from the warmth of the main room - those huge panoramic windows will give you a brilliant viewing point of those glittering landmarks. As you tuck into tasty light bites, the evening continues with live jazz and pop tunes from the ship's entertainer. Sing along, tap your foot...or maybe even a little dance? Either way, it's the perfect accompaniment to your evening afloat.
As there are Thames night cruise departures all year round, if you choose to sail in the winter months you will get to see the full festive illuminations and if you embark during the summer, it's a chance to catch the sunset over the River Thames as an equally romantic nautical alternative to the night cruise.
