City Cruises - cruises on the river Thames, London

City Cruises — operator of passenger services on the River Thames — carries some 750,000 people annually on its extensive sightseeing, ferry, entertainment and charter services. City Cruises has years of experience hosting important functions of all kinds. Christmas and Birthday celebrations to Corporate dinners and weddings, the vessels, menus and staff make every occasion perfect.

Millennium of Peace is the first of the new M2 class riverliners. Their design, specification and fit-out are the result of more than five years of technical studies, market research and development undertaken by City Cruises. Each vessel has an individual interior design theme. These themes are water for Millennium of Peace and spring, summer and autumn for the three following vessels. All have a modern European look which is a significant departure from the woodwork featured in traditional river boat interiors.

City Cruises offer different general services like London's great sights from the River Thames
Half an hour is all it takes to take in the splendour and the sights of London aboard one of the boats in London's famous Red Fleet. City Cruises has regular boats departing from the Houses of Parliament and Tower Pier, right beside the Tower of London. It means that you can enjoy two of London's ancient royal palaces all in the same day. And while you ride the tide, look out for the London Aquarium, The Royal National Theatre and the Royal Festival Hall, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and a unique view of St Paul's. This is the trip that puts London on the tourists' map.

Lunch cruises and Afternoon Tea Cruises
Lunch cruises depart daily from St. Katherine's Pier by Tower Hotel. See the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, HMS Belfast and the Tower of London (This service includes an after-lunch commentary on the downstream leg of your cruise). Afternoon Tea cruises are only available to Group bookings and depart daily from St. Katherine's Pier by Tower Hotel. See the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, HMS Belfast and the Tower of London

The London Showboat
It's the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary. If you're taking a holiday in London, or just a short break, it's the ideal way to end your stay in style. The London Showboat offers a unique dinner and cabaret cruise on the River Thames, with a four course meal, live music - songs from the West End shows - and dancing. The price of £45 includes a welcome drink and wine with your meal. Imagine your favourite songs from the world's most famous musicals as the perfect accompaniment to the sights of London. Add a river trip, a superb four course dinner, cocktails with the captain, dancing and you have the perfect combination for an unforgettable evening. The sights of London at night have to be seen to be believed and The London Showboat is the perfect way to do it. Aboard a luxury cruiser, we promise top quality entertainment both inside and out. Against the night sky The Houses of Parliament, St Paul's The Tower of London, Canary Wharf, Greenwich Palace and many more London landmarks reveal their splendour. The Thames Barrier marks the start of the cabaret with songs from London's famous West End musicals. Booking is required

Four luxury riverliners operate the Millennium route, taking approximately an hour each way to and from Central London. The service runs at half-hourly intervals until after the Dome's closure, which varies by season. The route begins from the new pier at Waterloo, directly below British Airways London Eye - the millennium wheel which soars 450ft above the River Thames. It then calls at Blackfriars, close to St Paul's Cathedral, before heading non-stop to the Dome. This is much more than a ferry service. It is an experience in itself - a journey through more than 1000 years of liquid history which takes in all the key sights en route along the river:

Westminster and Big Ben
St Paul's and the City
Shakespeare's Globe
The Tower of London and Tower Bridge
Canary Wharf and Docklands
Historic Greenwich - the home of time.

The route then crosses the Meridian line itself, passing into the Eastern hemisphere as it approaches the Millennium site, where another new pier provides a dedicated river entrance to the Dome. The City Cruises fleet provides the last word in luxury river travel - with tea & coffee, light refreshments, full bar and baby changing facilities. Of course all four vessels are accessible by disabled people - including toilet facilities for wheelchair users.
