About this Cruise

The biggest tour boat operator on the River Thames, City Cruises plc provides tourism and leisure passenger services on the River Thames with more than four million passenger journeys taking place every year on its route through the heart of London between Westminster and the Tower of London, then under Tower Bridge and down river to Greenwich – a journey through 2,000 years of liquid history. Now also operating in Poole & York.

Based at Cherry Garden Pier, a historic location in south-east London that was once a part of London’s huge commercial docks dating back to the 1880’s and part of the setting for many of Whistler’s paintings, City Cruises operate a fleet of 17 passenger boats, along with a small fleet of support vessels and barges.

Circular Cruise

What better way to end the day or start your evening than with a glass of bubbly in one hand, canapés in the other, listening to a selection of jazz and chill out pop songs from our live performer.

During a two hour cruise you will take in all the major sites on the river, from the London Eye to the Tower of London, the mini Manhattan of Canary Wharf and returning under the majestic Tower Bridge. The River Thames by night is a magical place and there’s nowhere to experience it better than with City Cruises, either from the comfort of the main saloon or upstairs in the open air panorama deck.

There’s space to unwind and a fully stocked bar with a variety of drinks (soft and otherwise).

Your ticket price includes complimentary glass of sparkling wine, canapes, live jazz and river cruise.
