London Showboat - gorgeous evening dinner cruise in LondonReviewed by: Miholapin, 2015/08/14
We enjoyed the cruise with our daughter living in London. As soon as we board the boat we were given a glass of champagne, which made us excited already. There was no specific dress code, but I think dressing up a bit will make the experience even more special. We were entertained by a wonderful performance of a beautiful singer, and there was dancing time at the end too - everybody was in high spirits. There was a lot of tourists but there were local people as well. Dinner was delicious and lit up London looked beautiful - it was truly a wonderful evening.

Unforgettable eveningReviewed by: Monika, 2015/04/14
It's a great way to see London from a different perspective - from the water and at night. The boat departs from Westminster Pier, right next to Big Ben and London Eye, both looking spectacular after dark. Live music on the boat was really great, it made the whole experience much more enjoyable. The food was really delicious - amazing salmon starter, tomato soup, great chicken and chocolate desert - I was really full by the end of the cruise! And a bottle of wine per couple was just what we needed to have a wonderful evening. If I will ever have a chance, I will definitely do it again!
Best Way to See LondonReviewed by: Paola F., 2014/06/17
London lit up at night is seriously stunning, and the best way to see it by far is from the river Thames.
This comfortable boat with super friendly staff was a great option to experience this. As soon as we boarded, we were greeted with a glass of bubbly. We then proceeded to enjoy our first two dishes as the boat sailed along the Big Ben, Parliament, London Eye, Tower Bridge and Tower of London.
Then the entertainer, a lovely singer with a really fun show, started to sing hits as she interacted with the public. We had a delicious (and generous!) main dish, cheesecake dessert and we we're even offered coffee and chocolates at the end of the meal.
At this point the boat heads back to the starting point, so it is really perfect timing! You can sit back and enjoy the stunning views, go to the open deck to take pictures, sip on the rest of the wine and even dance! The music becomes upbeat and most people got up from their chairs to hit the dance floor.
This is really a great way to spend an evening to remember in London.
