As the sun sets and the lights of London glow, escape the busy city with an evening cruise along the River Thames. Your table awaits on Bateaux’s Premier Dinner Cruise, granting impressive views of the London skyline from a whole new vantage.
With a glass of champagne in hand, relax as you take in the views and have your appetite whetted by the enticing smells coming from the kitchen.
