What better way to enjoy Christmas in London with our London Christmas Party Cruise ? No crowds, great views, and a full three course Christmas dinner. Watch the sights of London glide past the panoramic windows. Good food, great entertainment and fabulous views. That’s the London Christmas Party Cruise. The best night out on the river.

The evening on our chartered showboat includes reserved seating, a welcome cocktail on boarding, dinner, followed by a DJ and dancing.

There is a licensed cash bar available throughout the cruise. Smoking is permitted on the outside decks, and the boats are fully heated.

Our tour is based at the DoubleTree by Hilton London Docklands Riverside- a great 4 star hotel situated on the banks of the Thames, and with the advantage of having its own pier, so just a short walk to board the boat, you will also have free time on Monday to explore London, and maybe take in one of the many Christmas markets, or just maybe some pre Christmas shopping

We can also offer a free place for the coach driver or group leader with a minimum of just 15 paying persons.

For alternative tours to London in the winter why not check out a fantastic tour of London’s Christmas Markets.

Enjoy a full English breakfast in your hotel, and you then have some free time to explore the sites of the Capital. There may be time to visit the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park or the Christmas stalls on the South Bank of the Thames, which should really get you into the Christmas spirit or maybe a trip on the London Eye, a guided tour around Docklands and a trip on the Emirates Air line across the Thames.
