Thames Christmas Party Cruise Dates and Times

More Information about Thames Christmas Party Cruise

Get into the Christmas spirit this season on the River Thames with a delicious lunch on a cruise! This three hour-long ride promises to a joyful mix of lovely views, delicious food and festive cheer.

Prior to your meal you’ll be welcomed on-board with a glass of sparkling wine. It will then be time for an early Christmas meal consisting of three courses!

It’ll definitely feel like Christmas when you tuck into the Scottish smoked salmon starter and the scrumptious roast turkey. Followed by the Chef’s festive season chocolate dessert and tea or coffee, prepare to be spoilt.

For the Thames Christmas Lunch Party Cruise your meal will be complemented by the on-board vocalist singing festive music – you might even want to get your dancing shoes on. To top things off you’ll be cruising through the heart of London and taking in striking views of London’s most recognisable landmarks, all while getting sprinkled in festive joy. What’s not to love?

On theThames Christmas Dinner Party Cruise you will indulge in half bottle of wine while dancing to the music of the onboard live DJ.

Operating throughout various days in December, City Cruise’s Christmas Party Cruise will be departing from Westminster Pier at 1pm and drop you back there at 4pm for the lunch cruise and departing at 7pm from Westminster Pier and return at 11pm for the dinner cruise.
