Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your journey along the Thames River begins in the evening at Westminster Pier where you board the ship. Stroll the open-air deck and help yourself to delicious canapés as you embark on a leisurely float along London’s famous waterway. Then find a seat in the indoor saloon, enjoy live jazz music and admire unobstructed views of passing city landmarks at sunset.

Heading first past Westminster, get great views of the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Big Ben, followed by the illuminated London Eye and Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre, a gorgeous Elizabethan playhouse that still runs regular performances. Sip on bubbly wine as your boat cruises under London Bridge and past the Tower of London and the monolithic Shard building—London’s tallest building at 1,016 feet (310 meters) in height.

The final leg of your cruise takes you by Canary Wharf and the HMS Belfast which is now the Royal Naval Museum. From here, your boat makes its way back to Westminster Pier, where you disembark with plenty of time for dinner or evening activities.

NEVER USING VIATOR AGAIN
Robert_P
, Jan 2022
ALL Viator booked people were embarrassingly pulled to one side and not allowed to board because VIATOR did not pass our names over. What sort of scam are you pulling? We were eventually allowed on as there was space and had a great time. NO THANKS TO VIATOR. We will NEVER use Viator ever again.

The boat for the cruise never showed up and we stood out in the cold rain for 45 min waiting. We tried calling and there was only a busy signal. Worst experience EVER!!! Never again will I book with Viator!!

Ruined a perfect day! Booked an evening river cruise for 2 for my partners birthday, day comes and they had sent me reminders, tickets and directions for the location. We arrive to find out by Thames staff there is no river cruise through viator! Contacted them to be left on hold for 15 mins and a phone charge of £40

It’s really great to do this cruise and see all the nice buildings and lovely bridges on evening. Live Musik was very good, sometimes a little bit too loud. A little bit explanation would be nice. But all together a wonderful experience.

Didn’t bother contacting ??

I turned up at 18:00 for the trip that was supposed to start at 18:30 (boarding at 18:15) and was told that the trip was cancelled by the docking company but was never emailed or called to be told that the experience was cancelled. I drove for 40 mins from where I was staying to then be told that what I had paid for wasn’t available. If you book through this company be aware they steal your money and don’t contact you. Still demanding my money back due to the fact I didn’t get any experience at all so I should still get my money back Not happy at all 😡
