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 open for the scenic views that the river and the city have on display.

There is unlimited tea and coffee for the 1.5 hours that you're on the cruise: it's literally heaven on Earth

First off, this cruise is very enjoyable, but add in finger foods and unlimited tea and we have ourselves a mighty winner. This cruise is ideal for families and is available online at competitive prices

The scones I had on this afternoon cruise are probably the best scones I've tasted in my life: so gooey and satisfying
