A Quintessentially British Afternoon with City Cruises

The London landscape is iconic – just like its much-loved Afternoon Tea tradition. Enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, City Cruises has curated an unforgettable and unequivocally British experience through its Afternoon Tea Cruise, a 1.5 hour experience of light food, beverages, and a 360˚ view of some of the city’s most well-recognised landmarks from the comfort of the City Cruises fleet.

Whether in a sun-kissed Capital or one draped with golden autumnal leaves, there’s no better place to take in the best sights than from the River Thames itself, away from the bustle and camera flashes from its crowded banks. The Afternoon Tea Cruise offers up a memorable way to sit back, relax, and indulge in a delicious afternoon tea while gliding past London’s popular London riverside attractions, including Big Ben, the London Eye, and the Tower of London.

The experience includes a choice of freshly prepared sandwiches including Oak Smoked Salmon and Roast Chicken, soft scones with clotted cream and jam, and an array of stunning cakes, pastries, and macarons to indulge in (menu subject to change).

It also comes with a rich choice of teas or coffee (all unlimited), with the option for an upgrade to a Champagne Afternoon Tea, and of course the ability to purchase classic cocktails to wash it all down with. The Aperol Spritz Tree is well worth it to make the experience just that extra special.

Once the food and drink has been consumed, City sailors are invited to head upstairs to take in the 360˚ views of London's riverside landmarks from the open deck. It's a great way to combine a leisurely sightseeing trip with a delicious meal — the most spectacular way to see the city.


The City Cruises Afternoon Tea is perfect for birthday celebrations, to show your visitors the best of London, or just for something a bit special and unique. Prices start from £47 per child aged 2-12 and from £62 per adult while infants under 2 board free.
