Enjoy a Sunday in style, with good food, great views and a live jazz soundtrack! You'll board the Bateaux London cruiser at the glass pontoon at Embankment Pier and then take your seats for a fun and relaxing cruise down the Thames. Enjoy a three-course roast meal followed by coffee and admire the views of some of London's iconic landmarks. You'll cruise past the best of the old and the new - the Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, Tate Modern, the Tower of London and much more. And all the while you can enjoy some toe-tapping jazz from a live professional jazz band. This experience is for one person but can be bought as an experience for two (code BATJC).

London scenes were dazzling in the beautiful October sunshine. No wonder the whole world comes to see our capital city. A delicious meal in a floating restaurant with super music. We felt like royalty on the Thames.
Our second Jazz lunch as we enjoyed the first one so much, and this was just as good! We enjoyed the female vocalist as much as the male one first time round. Good lunch again, main was a good sized portion. It would be nice to have cheese and biscuits as an optional extra, especially when you have a bottle of wine to finish! Food much better than on Symphony.
Pleaseantly surprised by the whole experience, the boat "The Symphony" was clean and comfortable.
We were greeted very professionally on arrival and the service and meal were superb. Many thanks.
It was a great day and you where treated as if you were the only one having the special day.
We had a very enjoyable time. Thank you very much.
We had a fantastic day, it was a lovely present and would highly recommend it to anyone who has a special occasion or just likes to spoil themselves. Thank you.
Everything went smoothly and we enjoyed our day very much.
We had a really enjoyable trip and feel it would be lovely to give this treat to other people too.
We had such a nice relaxing time and saw London from a different viewpoint.
We had an absolutely excellent time as my husband and I celebrated 35 years of marriage. This was a very special day for us as we also met on the Thames on a river boat disco cruise 37 years ago! The staff had an excellent attitude and made us very welcome. I was so pleased when we went down river to Greenwich, which is where I was born and where all my ancestors have lived and worked as Watermen & Lightermen since the early 1600s - so as you can imagine I was thrilled to see so many places I know from the river aspect. We really enjoyed our three course meal and complimentary house wine. We both had a thoroughly enjoyable day - thank you very very much.
We had a brilliant day out and it was great value for money.
I thought the day out was excellent but was slightly disappointed with the quality of the beef we were served for lunch. My piece was dry probably becasue it was cooked too well.
It was a very good day; your staff were very helpful and professional. The Jazz band and singer were very good.
High standard of service from staff, quality of food and standard of vessel. The only negative for us was the loudness of the jazz music from the speaker. We felt the speakers carrying the sound through could have been turned down a tiny amount.
The service, the meal, the band and the atmosphere were excellent. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing day, THANK YOU!!
Exceptional day out, complimented by great care to detail from all the staff, making our day just special.
This was given to us as a belated birthday present for 2007 and gave a memorable and very enjoyable conclusion to our weekend theatre break which we arranged ourselves as a post Christmas treat. We will certainly recommend the experience to all our friends and will definitely book again when we next visit London.
Great atmosphere, the jazz band was amazing and we even had a mention from the band as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary complete with a very fizzy sparkler.
Excellent trip from beginning to end; most enjoyable.
Nearest tube station is Embankment from which it is only a short walk to Embankment pier
