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 4 hour cruise. Marvel at London’s iconic sights by night as you are seated to enjoy a three course festive dinner , 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.
