Boats Boats

There are two boats which are used for the Thames Lunch Cruises, either the Symphony or the Harmony.

Both boats have been designed to create an elegant yet relaxed dining atmosphere.

The name of your allocated boat will be on your boarding confirmation after you have completed your booking.

The Symphony is one of the most elegant river-cruisers on the Thames. This unusual all-glass structure provides guests with uninterrupted views of London’s most breathtaking sights.

The Symphony is very contemporary in nature, with pale wooden floors, simple but elegant furniture and all the amenities that one needs. The large expanse of glass creates a much sought-after spacious and airy atmosphere allowing you to enjoy Dinner on the Thames in Style.

Maximum Table Size - 14

The Harmony is unique to the Thames, with Scandinavian-design features and flexible layouts. She has the largest open deck on the River measuring over 250 square metres.

The dining areas on the lower deck benefit from large windows giving spectacular views of the sites, a great new London venue for corporate dining, celebrations and special occasions. The Harmony is the only vessel that is fully accessible.

Maximum Table Size - 10
