Cruise past the Tower of London and under Tower Bridge. Linger over your gourmet 3-course dinner as the onboard jazz band strikes up swing and Latin jazz. (Should the mood take you, there’s a fully licensed bar.) Capture pictures or catch up on life until your craft returns to Westminster.

We enjoyed our meal and dinner with Jazz music on the Thames River. The food was very good and so was the music. It was a nice evening for a dinner cruise and the London night lights made for a very romantic experience. We're going to do it again when we return to London.

This trip is absolutely brilliant. From start to finish I find it very difficult to fault it in any way. First of all the price, £65. Compared to what we paid for other activities in London over the weekend including £30pp for a trip on the underwhelming London eye to paying
