2 travellers
Enjoy an unforgettable evening of music and food on this 3-hour Thames River jazz cruise with 3-course dinner. Cruise on the Thames River with friends or your special someone, and admire sweeping views over top London attractions such as the National Theatre, the Oxo Tower, Shakespeare's Globe, the Tate Modern, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London. With live jazz music from the band on board, savor a delicious 3-course dinner of grilled escalope of chicken with dauphinoise potato and ratatouille of vegetables. Tour includes round-trip travel from Westminster Pier.
  • Cruise past London’s top attractions: Big Ben, the London Eye, and more
  • Feel the romance as you glide through London's lights by night
  • Savor a gourmet 3-course dinner in the cozy saloon and listen to live jazz
  • Start the night with a chilled glass of sparkling wine
What to Expect
Board your Thames river boat at Westminster Pier and start the night in style with a glass of sparkling wine. Admire the view from the top deck—or the heated saloon—as landmarks like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Shard, and Shakespeare’s Globe drift past. Cruise past Tate Modern and the Tower of London, and under Tower Bridge. Linger over your gourmet 3-course dinner as the onboard jazz band strikes up swing and Latin jazz. (Should the mood take you, there’s a fully licensed bar.) Capture pictures or catch up on life until your craft returns to Westminster.

We went on the jazz and dinner cruise our last night of a 14-day visit to the UK. It was the perfect ending to our trip. We loved the music, food, and views of the city at sunset. Great value!
