This was a gift for mum and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I was amazed how a daytime cruise boat could be turned into a lovely dining room with 5 star service from the minute we were handed a glass of prosecco as we stepped on through the 4 course meal, which was delicious, and coffee. Staff and service were... More

I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The boat was nice the staff were really great and very friendly. The singing was more for an older generation but it was still enjoyable. The singing was of a good quality but a little cheesy but this cruise does cater for tourists so it probably caters perfectly to... More

We had a company meeting with 32 delegates. The food was good as was the overall service. The singer was very cheesy which my European colleagues liked but was not suited to indigenous Brits. Overall good value.

Neat 3 hour trip on the Thames which brought us further down stream on the Thames than we would have expected ! Food was fine for such a trip, warm and served correctly. Amusement was on a nice level, just enough. We are very positive due to the fact that we had a window table, if we would have been... More

Having looked around for something different for a Monday night anniversary, I found that I was limited in choice. From the options that were available I thought that a river cruise with dinner would be something good to try. I was apprehensive about booking due to the mixed reviews and fussiness of my partner. As it turned out, this was... More

Would highly recommend the london showboat cruise. A relaxing dinner cruise up the Thames. On arrival guests are welcomed with a glass of prosecco. Delicious four course meal with great entertainment. Half a bottle of wine per guest included in the price. Guests can listen to a singer as they enjoy their meal and there is the opportunity to get... More

My birthday treat and was great fun but I have to say that if the instructions are from dock 2 and and it is really dock B then this confusion could easily be avoided! 1st time I have done anything like this and was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and service.

The best night in town is on the river! A three-and-a-half-hour cruise from Westminster Pier in central London down the River Thames towards Canary Wharf and the Thames Barrier with welcome drink, four-course dinner, live singer and dancing. You'll wish the evening would never end.

The boat departs 7.45Pm from Monday to Sunday (except Christmas Day 25th December and New Year's Eve 31st December) throughout the year.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
