Afternoon Tea Cruise

What could be lovelier than cruising down the river Thames, right in the heart of the city of London, sipping hot tea from bone china and nibbling away at plates of delicious cakes and scones?

After all, one does need to treat oneself, from time to time.

Tea time on the river - how civilised! Its the perfect way of enjoying the sights of London in a totally relaxed and comfortable environment, without the hustle and bustle of the crowds. The upstairs deck offers 360 degree views of London’s riverside landmarks, so be sure to bring a camera as there are photo opportunities galore! And if the mood takes you, why not indulge in a few glasses of bubbly? Cruising like royalty down the Thames doesn’t happen every day, go on, treat yourself!

City Cruises really pull out all the stops when it comes to their afternoon tea. Expect a wide selection of finger sandwiches and cakes, as well as generous helpings of jam and cream for the all important scones – a staple of a traditional English afternoon tea experience!

Discover City Cruises


City Cruises offers regular sightseeing cruises 365 days a year between Westminster, London Eye, Tower and Greenwich. City Cruises fleet of sightseeing boats is one of the most modern on the river and designed especially with the sightseer in mind. That's why you'll find all the sightseeing boats feature comfortable saloon and large, open-air decks, which are the best way to see London pass by.

The hugely popular tour hosts 4 million passengers every year, and it's no wonder - not only can you see the capital's world-class sites but you can experience a number of onboard activities - from jazz evenings to afternoon tea.
