There are few more romantic ways to experience any city than from the water—by night. Couple the eternal magic of London’s illuminated skyline with a gourmet 3-course dinner and sultry live jazz, and you have an experience that’s tailor-made for lovers—even before you start the sparkling wine. Don’t leave the night to chance: Book ahead.
  • Cruise past London’s top attractions: Big Ben, the London Eye, and more
  • Feel the romance as you glide through London's lights by night
  • Savor a gourmet 3-course dinner in the cozy saloon and listen to live jazz
  • Start the night with a chilled glass of sparkling wine
What to Expect
Board your Thames riverboat at Westminster Pier and start the night in style with a glass of sparkling wine. Admire the view from the top deck—or the heated saloon—as landmarks like Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and the Shard drift past. Cruise past the Tower of London and under Tower Bridge. Linger over your gourmet 3-course dinner as the onboard jazz band strikes up swing and Latin jazz. (Should the mood take you, there’s a fully licensed bar.) Capture pictures or catch up on life until your craft returns to Westminster.

We had a great table with a brilliant view which helps. Also the weather was fine for going up top to get even better views. We were very impressed with the service and the waiting staff wore masks which was good. The food (veggie for us) was great and the jazz band was

We enjoyed our meal and dinner with Jazz music on the Thames River. The food was very good and so was the music. It was a nice evening for a dinner cruise and the London night lights made for a very romantic experience. We're going to do it again when we return to London.

Rubbish don’t waste your money poor singer for over an hour the lady that sings in the jazz band eat and drinks for 2 hours then signs a few songs with a 70 year old bloke who’s not interested. Poor food don’t do it I wasted over 200 pound.
