What Can I Expect

Treat someone you love to a lunch cruise on London's foremost waterway, combining a luxury riverboat tour with a delicious meal! Sit back and relax as you sail gently along, past iconic landmarks, buildings and monuments, enjoying your meal.

Whether you're after a romantic date for two, or want to treat the whole family, this is one of our most popular days out in the capital. It's also a great excuse to get dressed up, with a smart casual dress code requested for all passengers. You will be embarking on the Glass Room for your luncheon cruise, which has nautical-themed interiors created by the Tom Dixon Design Studio.

Lunch on this cruise around London is a seasonal set menu. Food is freshly prepared onboard by the boat's chef team and served at your table whilst you cruise. You can choose between a two or three-course menu for your delicious meal afloat.

You'll also be treated to a professionally recorded commentary as you sail, including some quirky stories you just won't find in the guidebooks. You'll pass key waterside landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, the Globe theatre and the instantly-recognisable structures of Waterloo train station and the MI6 SIS building.

There is plenty of time to both eat and take in the views, as the voyage lasts around an hour and a half. We highly recommend bringing along a camera so you can capture the best of the capital's sights from on board these special floating vessels that have been designed with sightseeing in mind.

All lunch cruises depart from and return to London's Embankment Pier, with the riverside location within easy distance of mainline stations and public transport. You'll be asked to arrive 30-minutes before the departure time, so you have plenty of time to board and get settled in your seat before setting off.

These lunch cruises through London are a perennial best-seller, so our advice is to book your vouchers now to avoid disappointment. That way you too can enjoy this spectacular gourmet experience on one of the world's most notable rivers, taking in everything this splendid city has to offer.

Just about everything was great - the welcome the service the experience. If there was one disappointment it was the menu suggested there was a choice of desserts and there wasn't. My wife and I hoped to order one each and share. It wasn't very clear. Also it would have been nice to keep the menu as a souvenir. One more thing - the commentary talks of the Elizabeth Tower at Parliament being formerly St Stephen's Tower. This is a common mistake amongst London tours. The tower at the other end is St Stephen's Tower -the Elizabeth Tower was previously the Clock Tower. Correct your comentary and imagine how smug you'll feel. But overall it was a great thing to do.

Great experience! This was a birthday gift. At time of booking informed them I was vegan, on day once seated (brilliant window view) waiter came over and gave me an alternative menu choice. Didn't really know what to expect but needn't of worried food was absolutely devine! The commentary about London was a bonus and very informative. Loved it and would recommend to everyone.

A great experience. This was not something we would ever have thought of booking for ourselves...thank goodness for friends! The check in was simple and friendly. Punctuality was first class. The lunch was much better than I expected it to be. The service was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Had a really enjoyable lunch, service was excellent. The only one very small negative was that it was a very sunny day and it did get extremely warm, maybe the doors could have been opened at the front of the boat? I would recommend this trip.
