Gourmet dining combined with a luxurious Thames cruise.
With the warmer days not far away, this is a fabulous affordable experience for two people.
And even better, you can enjoy the lunch and the cruise, delight in a jazz band accompaniment, and even complete your day with an unforgettable trip on the legendary London Eye.
Of if you like the Thames but want to stay on dry land, we’ve even found a lunch overlooking the Thames and thrown in a wine tasting or Champagne appreciation session. In fact, there’s something for everybody.
We’ve brought together all the web’s Thames lunch experiences in one place for you, using only top experience providers, so you know you’ll get a fabulous lunch, a superb cruise, and great value for money.
Thames lunch cruise experience review
If you choose to have lunch cruising the Thames, it’s a truly unforgettable meal. Food quality is superb, service attentive, the band a group of high class musicians, and best of all you’ll get the major sights of the world’s greatest capital city floating past just outside your window.
Clearly, it’s better if the weather is fine and the sunlight illuminates all the landmarks for you and makes recording your trip on your camera or phone that much easier. But even when it’s wet, London is still the best capital city for landmarks and the weather should take nothing away from your enjoyment. And we find snuggling away from the cold and rain on one of these luxury cruising craft, savouring gourmet fare with music in the background and London just outside, one of the finest ways to enjoy a bad weather day in London.
If you don’t go to London much, then we recommend you take the trip with the London Eye included, as it really does give you views beyond compare.
The lunch cruise is available for one or two, but we recommend taking a partner and making a real event of it. Note that most people there will be couples, so you might feel a bit left out if you’re on your own.
The lunch BY the Thames rather than on it makes the most of the views, giving you a top class lunch and wine/Champagne tasting while Old Father Thames just keeps rolling along right outside the window.
This lunch experience adds a new dimension to wine tasting, and of course the event is hosted by an expert who will pass on top tips and wrinkles from years and years of wine experience. So if it’s a wine tasting you’re looking for, then you can’t do much better than this.
Thames lunch cruise as a gift
You’ll find that giving a lunch cruise on the Thames, for two, will be one of the most appreciated gifts you’ve ever given.
For birthdays or anniversaries, what could be better and more enjoyable that a gourmet sightseeing cruise down through the world’s top tourist attractions and landmarks. To say “thank you” to parents, children or friends. Or as a treat for your partner or loved one, take them on this fantastic lunch outing and the memories will last and last.
If they live near London, then they’ll find that this experience opens their eyes to what’s been around them all the time – how often is it that when you live close to something you never actually notice or appreciate it. If they live far out of Town, then this trip could be the highlight of a weekend in the Smoke where all the attractions, shows, restaurants and bars are there for the enjoying.
Now all that’s left is to decide whether you want On the Thames or BY the Thames. We recommend the cruise, but it’s all totally down to you! Whichever you choose, you’ll love it.
