Imagine gliding past London's most iconic sites and landmarks whilst enjoying great cuisine and live entertainment..... A dinner cruise with Bateaux London offers all that and more!
The River Thames is often referred to as the artery of London as it runs through the heart of the city and indeed most of London's most famous buildings and attractions can be seen from the river. In fact, it offers unique views of sites such as Tower Bridge and Houses of Parliament. During your cruise you will enjoy a 4-course à la carte menu including a welcome cocktail, a bottle of wine and half a bottle of water per person and tea/coffee. Bateaux London's Chefs specialise in modern British cuisine and the menu will always include a great vegetarian option.
A live Jazz Band completes the experience, made up of some of London's finest musicians playing a great selection of jazz during the meal and something more uplifting for after-dinner dancing. Bateaux London's flagship The Symphony offers great views from every table with its glass walls and ceilings.
