Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
Head to Embankment Pier in central London and then board your Thames River night cruise. If you opt for the start time of 7:30pm, travel aboard the Harmony, a beautiful Scandinavian sightseeing boat with a dining saloon and spacious open deck. Alternatively, select the 8pm cruise and board the largest dinner cruise boat in London, the magnificent Symphony. The glass-walled vessel is one of the most luxurious vessels on the Thames, affording passengers with sweeping waterfront views of London.

Pick up a welcome cocktail from the onboard bar, and then take a seat at your table as you head east along the Thames River. Relax while listening to live jazz music, and feast on a sumptuous 4-course meal, served by your waiting staff. See the Itinerary below for a sample menu. Upgrade to the Premier Dinner option if you want a half-bottle of house wine and mineral water included. Drinks are also available from the bar (own expense).

As you eat, gaze out of the window to see the sights of London by night. Pass the Houses of Parliament, bathed in a golden glow, and look to the South Bank to see the trendy Tate Modern museum as well as the London Eye — a legendary city landmark. Glide beneath the Millennium Bridge, featured in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and then admire the sight of Shakespeare’s Globe. Look to the north bank for a glimpse of St Paul’s Cathedral and gaze east to see Tower Bridge illuminated against the dark London sky.

Finish your London dinner-cruise experience dancing to anything from 1960s tunes to modern hits. After 2.5 hours of cruising up and down the Thames River, your experience finishes back at Embankment Pier.

Fabulous food and wine and a brilliant way to see London at night. Highly recommended.

I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was much better than expected, and the river ride was longer than I expected. The best thing I have to say is that because of the power outage at the Atlanta airport, we missed our flight, and therefore, missed this tour. Since it was past the time where I could cancel and get a refund, I thought my money was forfeit. I emailed them to try and rebook for later in the week and they did! So I was delighted. I should add that they did not email me back, so unless I had called, I would not have know about the rebooking. Persistence pays.

Fantastic evening, very relaxing and fun to see the beautiful city from a different angle. Our server was pleasant and made sure everything was to our liking. Highly recommend this cruise.

Excelente passeio. O ambiente é agradabilíssimo. Comida deliciosa, embora em pouca quantidade. Garçons atenciosos. Música boa. Eu recomendo.

This was a lovely dinner cruise, however, be advised there is a dress code which we did not bother to read. Luckily we arrived early enough that we could purchase inexpensive shoes as we could not wear tennis shoes. Only one member of our party needed a complete outfit as he was in a T shirt, cargo shorts and tennis shoes. We had been out touring all day this was a nice ending to a fun day.

On my first evening in London, I and my companion chose to take the premier dinner cruise along the Thames River, with Bateaux Cruises. Excellent choice! The food was very high quality and included bottles of wine, live music. It was my first trip to London and this was the PERFECT way to achieve an overview/introduction to the city. The city at nighttime is breathtaking and we could hardly stop taking photos to eat. It is a feast for the stomach and the eyes. Highly recommended!! You will not be disappointed.

The service was terrific. The food was good but not great.

The food is very good but the service is very slow. If you come early to the place, make sure you ask for the window seat so you can at least enjoy the view while waiting for the very slow food service.

Overpriced and disappointing. The amount of food was disgraceful for the price paid. There was meant to be entertainment for the evening and i sincerely thought we'd be able to have a dance...well. i would have paid the woman to stop singing!!!!
