A magical Journey through the heart of London…

The Thames Dinner Cruise is a memorable experience not be missed when visiting London, a unique evening offering guests the opportunity to sail past some of London’s most famous attractions whilst enjoying freshly prepared British cuisine.

There are two boats which are used for the Thames Dinner Cruise, either the Symphony or the Harmony, both of which have been designed to create an elegant yet relaxed dining atmosphere. As you step on-board you will be greeted by our experienced restaurant team and shown to your private table. Once seated you can enjoy a chilled glass of Sparkling Kir before setting sail. As you start to cruise along the River Thames, your a la carte dinner which has been cooked on-board by our talented chefs will be served and the jazz band will begin to play. After your meal the band will liven-up giving you the option to join in with some after dinner dancing.

Cruising on the Thames allows you to see all of London’s best sights as you sail past the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, London Bridge, HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, the Dock lands and the Millennium Dome.

As part of Tube improvements, we are replacing four escalators at Embankment between Wednesday 8 January and early November 2014. As a result, Bakerloo and Northern line trains will not stop at Embankment in either direction. The District and Circle lines will continue to serve the station as usual.

Customers wishing to change trains at Embankment are advised to either:
Use alternative Tube routes by changing at a nearby station such as Piccadilly Circus, Waterloo, Leicester Square, Westminster or Victoria. Walk between Charing Cross and Embankment via Villiers Street – roughly a five minute walk. Oyster settings at both stations will be updated so customers are not overcharged, as long as they touch in and out in good time.

Customers are also advised to start late night journeys 15 minutes earlier. This is to make sure last train connections at the above interchanges are made in time.

“Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks both to you and your team at Thames Dinner Cruises. From the moment we stepped onto the Harmony the staff couldn’t have been more attentive, polite and professional. The food was excellent and we had a great table next to the window, the singer and Jazz band also contributed positively to the overall ambiance of the evening. All seven of us had a truly great experience and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the trip and your company to friends and family alike.”  Richard – Classic Dinner Cruise – 14.12.14

“It was my daughters 25th birthday and wanted to do something special I went on line to see what was available for a dinner cruise and saw your advert there was five of us including my daughter I went on line to book up and found the cost for the dinner cruise quite high for five course all inclusive but I booked it anyway that was Sunday the 14/12 /14 I can honestly say that was the best experience me and my family have ever had and we have many wonderful parties but nothing compares great food great service excellent value for your money” Michelle – Signature Dinner Cruise – 14.12.14

“It was such an amazing experience, waiter excellent, music so relaxing and relevant to my celebration, food very delicious though my only concern was the portions were small, my overall verdict was 95% good. I recommended a friend and they booked their dinner three weeks after me and they liked it too, though they missed out on a boat with a decking on top. I really loved it will do it more and more.” Maria – Premier Dinner Cruise – 19.07.14

“Just would like to say a massive than you for the excellent service and all round entertainment, which was provided for my sister and her husband on 13th August, evening river cruise. I had booked the cruise as a birthday treat for my brother in law who was 50 and the date coincided with their 26th Wedding Anniversary, so a double event. My sister rang me after they had docked to express her delight at the experience. She told me that the food was fabulous and the staff were excellent. Thank you so much for ensuring that their special evening was special and one which they will always remember for all the right reasons. Please pass on my thanks to the staff who were working that night.” YVONNE – Classic Dinner Cruise – 13.08.14
