Summer Barbeque Lunch Buffet Cruise

River Thames Cruises would like to introduce the very popular Summer Barbeque Lunch Buffet Cruise on the Thames, perfect for a Summer Day Out in London.

The Cruise begins at Westminster Pier and is the perfect way to celebrate a special event with friends and family, with a fresh Barbeque lunch menu, fully stocked bar and a journey that takes you away from the busy City life, past old and new sites including The Tower of London, The London Eye and ever so famous London Bridge.

Boarding takes place from the Westminster Pier, located opposite the Westminster underground station, under Big Ben by the Westminster Bridge. The buffet will be opened within half an hour of departure from the pier, and on the return trip to the pier a full live commentary will be given by an experienced tour guide pointing out all the sights with a brief history outline as we cruise past.
