Bonfire Night in London Watching the Fireworks

Bonfire Night in London Watching the FireworksBonfire Night in London watching the Fireworks, is now our new tradition.

 

Last year, we found ourselves in London during the first weekend of November.  As I started searching for things for us to do whilst there, I realised it would be Bonfire Night on the Saturday.  “I bet there are some fantastic fireworks in London on Bonfire Night”, I thought.  So, I began looking for fireworks displays.  There were quite a few options, but as we were staying in Central London, we wanted to stay quite central to avoid unnecessary tube trips.

 

That’s when I saw River Thames Bonfire Night Cruise – London Fireworks.  Step aboard our Thames Bonfire Night Cruise for a bonfire night to remember.”

 

This was perfect! I am a huge fan of Bonfire Night, but have to admit, I don’t like standing in a cold field watching the fireworks on a cold November night.  So the thought of being inside a warm boat, with toilets was a big selling point for me.

 

We arrived at Westminster Pier at 17.45 and walked down to the boat, which was waiting alongside the pier.  We boarded the boat and were greeted with a glass of hot Muller Cider which was delicious.  The boat set sail and we cruised along the River Thames, past the London Eye and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.  We passed HMS Belfast and the Tower of London before sailing underneath Tower Bridge. The photo opportunities were amazing, everything looked beautiful lit up against the dark sky.

 

The boat then turned around and we headed back up river.  The food station opened and we got ourselves a box of Chilli Con Carne with rice, which was a delicious classic supper for Bonfire Night.

 

We sailed past the Houses of Parliament and slowly came to a stop next to Battersea Park.  The Captain announced that the fireworks would be starting soon.

 

Bonfire Night in London Watching the FireworksWe bought a fresh round of drinks, put on our hats and coats and made our way to the open outside deck.  The Battersea Park fireworks were amazing.  Standing on the upper deck of a boat in the middle of the River, watching the fireworks fly high above the trees into the black November sky is mesmerising.  We forgot we were in London.  The gentle sway of the boat gave everything a dreamlike quality.

 

We had such a good Bonfire Night in London watching the Battersea Park fireworks on the Thames.  That we have decided to make this a tradition and have asked friends and family to join us for 2017.

 

Warning: this is a sell-out.  We have already booked our tickets.  What are you waiting for?  Book Your Tickets Now – https://www.thamesdinnercruise.co.uk/bonfire-night-cruises/ 

 

Welcome to the Thames Dinner Cruise Blog

Thames Dinner Cruise providing lunch cruises and dinner cruises on the River Thames in LondonThanks for visiting the first of the Thames Dinner Cruise Blog posts. In future blogs, we will aim to keep you informed with suggestions and ideas for Thames lunch and dinner cruises and events for you, your family, friends and colleagues.

Central London is an ideal venue for any event and an elegant dinner or lunch cruise along the Thames is the ultimate way to propose to a loved one, celebrate a special occasion. or just relax and enjoy the iconic sights and views along the Thames. Famous and historic buildings such as: Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, The Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral, the London Eye and Tower Bridge are all visible as you sail along sipping a glass of wine and enjoying a first-class meal. Lunch cruises are a beautiful way to see the sights and get a better perspective of the layout of central London and the route of the Thames. Evening Dinner cruises can be suitable for any celebratory occasion and are particularly ideal for a romantic events. Prior to the 2012 London Olympics, central London was fitted out with many more attractive and interesting lights and these make a dinner cruise along the Thames even more spectacular and enjoyable.

In recent years, central London has undergone a continuing upgrade and new building programme so the skyline is continually changing and becoming more impressive and intriguing so there are always more amazing sights to see. Buildings such as the Shard and ‘The Gherkin’ (30 St Mary Axe) are all modern, but very impressive sights to view along the river.

All of our Dinner Cruise and Lunch Cruise boats are  modern, purpose-built craft that are specially designed for space, comfort and the best possible visibility from all areas. All of our lunch and dinner cruises are excellent value – especially when you compare them with a an equivalent meal in even a modest, central London restaurant.

Whatever the occasion, you can be assured that the Thames Dinner Cruise will make it a relaxed, special and memorable occasion for you and your guests.
