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

The evening on our chartered showboat includes reserved seating, a welcome cocktail on boarding, dinner with a half bottle of wine per person, followed by a DJ and dancing.

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

Our tour is based at the Guoman Tower Hotel which is on the banks of the River Thames next to the Tower of London and adjacent to St Katharine Docks – which itself has a great selection of bars and shops to explore.

This tour is also available by train from a selection of stations around the UK

Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

London and Showboat Christmas Party Cruise

Arrive in London in the afternoon and check into your hotel before joining other groups for an evening on the river. You will board the modern Riverliner at Tower Pier at 5.45pm and depart at 6.00pm, enjoying a welcome drink as you start to cruise down the Thames for a four hour cruise. Marvel at London’s iconic sights by night as you are seated to enjoy a three course festive dinner with a half bottle of wine per person, followed by tea/coffee. After dinner the party continues with a live DJ and dancing amidst beautiful festive decorations. Spend the remainder of the cruise dancing to an array of classic party tunes, or head out on deck to take in the breathtaking sites of London at Christmas time. At around 10pm return to your hotel.

Day 2

London Winter Wonderland Christmas Markets and return home

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. Leave London at your leisure to return home.

Featured hotel

Guoman Tower Hotel ****

With a stunning location on the banks of the Thames and next to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, this large 4 star hotel is within a short walk of Tower Pier (see below) and offers over 800 spacious rooms, two restaurants, lounge areas and bars. Coach parking is available at the Tower Hill Coach Park (charges apply).

Single supplement £45 per person.

Note : Please note that the boat departs from Tower Pier which is around a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. The route is flat, though is partly cobbled, and runs beside the Thames and in front of the Tower of London. An alternative, slightly longer route is available which uses flat, paved walkways. On the return from the Pier on Sunday evening, it is necessary for all guests to use the longer route, as the pathway in front of the Tower is closed.
