Make your own way to the Embankment Pier in central London and board your comfortable, modern cruise boat. Then, settle at your white linen-covered table in the interior cabin, and enjoy the views through the picture windows as your boat follows a round-trip route along the Thames River.
Stay inside or head out on the deck area with your camera as you glide past a roll call of London landmarks. Absorb views of the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye, drift by the Tower of London, and admire the aptly-named ‘Gherkin’ building, St Paul’s Cathedral and soaring glass spire of The Shard, London’s newest architectural icon.
As you cruise, enjoy a quintessentially English afternoon tea set to live soft piano music from the resident pianist. Savor freshly cut finger sandwiches, exquisite cakes and fluffy homemade scones served with dollops of Cornish clotted cream and strawberry preserves, all arranged on dainty cake stands and accompanied by freshly brewed tea and coffee, fresh from the pot. Just remember to crook your little finger in true English aristocratic style as you lift your cup! See the

We had a very afternoon tea, plenty to eat, a good selection of sandwiches and cakes to choose from. Personally it was a little noisy for me, I wasn't awre of how big the boat is and that it would be packed. The service was good, there was no waiting for anything.

Very nice afternoon tea experience. The day we took this tour was raining, but that didn't affect the quality of our tour. We really enjoyed the boat trip and the food, which was very well served. You get all the tea you want, plus a very generous serving of sandwiches, scones and small pies. Would definitely book this tour again.

A nice afternoon tea and a cruise on the Thames. Is there a better way to spend your afternoon? We really enjoyed ourselves. We had a unique vantage point to see the sights of London from a different perspective. It was a little warm on board though, so dress lightly (mid-September). The observation deck was a good place to take pictures but pin your hair up because the wind is fierce! We would definitely do this again.

My daughter and I very much enjoyed this tour. The afternoon tea was well done, with great service, and nice views along the Thames.

Wonderful cruise around the River Thames. The tea and food was delicious. The extra money spent for the window seat was worth it. Best views possible.
