Seeing London from the River Thames is an unforgettable way to view some of London's best landmarks. You can enjoy a delicious Afternoon Tea as you gaze at an endless stream of riverfront sights.
As the perfect antidote to a mornings serious retail therapy, or perhaps as a curtain raiser to an evening at the theatre, why not join us on the river for a relaxing cruise past London's riverside landmarks. And when you've finished off your tea, you can always stroll upstairs to take in the the 360 degree views of London's riverside landmarks.
A more elegant way to explore London's sights from the warmth and comfort of the City Cruises fleet.
