Bateaux London is a posh dinner cruise. You get a great meal and live entertainment as you float slowly down the Thames, taking in some nighttime views of St. Paul's and Tower Bridge.

The boats they use have huge windows, so every table has a good view of the London landmarks floating past the window.

During the cruise you will be served a coffee, cocktail, and a four-course meal from the a la carte menu. A typical menu might include Butternut Squash & Coriander Veloute, Duck Liver Parfait, Carpaccio of Heirloom Tomatoes, Slow Braised Feather Blade of Beef, or Saffron Potato Gnocchi. Desert might be a choice between White Chocolate & Raspberry Ingot and Vanilla Soya Milk Panna Cotta (menu is subject to change).

A live band will play a selection of jazz tunes while you eat, and something a bit more uplifting for the after-dinner dancing.

Note: Children under the age of 16 are not permitted, and the dress code is smart to formal. No denim or sportswear is allowed, and a jacket and tie is encouraged for gentlemen. They might refuse to let you on if you turn up in the wrong clothes. See bateauxlondon.com for more details.

If you'd like a cruise down the river without the food and drink, then there are several companies that offer sightseeing tours. City Cruises is the most popular, but we prefer the smaller boats of Thames River Services (TRS). Thames Clippers go a lot further (all the way to The O2), but they don't provide any commentary onboard. Check out our page of sightseeing boats in London for our full list.
