I liked the way the windows were fogged up so you couldn't see the landmarks on the tour.

Few things are as quintessentially English as afternoon tea. When combined with a serene and relaxing 90-minute cruise down the River Thames, this culinary experience leaves very little to be desired! Once you board the cruise at Tower pier in the afternoon, you will get the chance to savour plates filled with scones topped with clotted cream, slices of delectable pastries, and more, all while taking the remarkable view of iconic sights in London.

Of course, no tea party is complete without pots of steaming tea. Sip on unlimited cups of tea and coffee to go with your treats. As you enjoy the delicious spread, keep your eyes peeled for the scenic views that the river and the city have on display. If you’ve got an afternoon to relax and take in London, this cruise is the perfect experience!
