A cruise on The River Thames with Sunday lunch could just be the best way to spend your Sunday afternoon!
The Sunday lunch River Thames cruise takes place on the Spirit of Chartwell, a luxurious boat which is full of spectacular history, designed to replicate the glamour from the Cote d’Azur Pullman railway carriage and even includes various artefacts and statement pieces from the carriage and other important, historic trains and ships such as the RMS Windsor Castle.
In more recent times the Spirit of Chartwell has been making history by being a part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012. The Spirit of Chartwell was the focal point of 1000 boats in the pageant decorated to resemble an 18th century royal barge, carrying the Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal Family down the Thames.
The Spirit of Chartwell cruise for two begins at 11am at Canary Wharf with the exquisite champagne reception to enjoy whilst travelling down the Thames. You have the option of listening to a journey guide if you wish to know more about the sights on the side of the Thames.
The Sunday lunch on board the Spirit of Chartwell consists of three courses which is freshly prepared on the ship with special diets catered for if you advise the ship when booking your table.
After lunch the cruise will take a short stop at Greenwich where it will then make its return to Canary Wharf. On the return leg of the cruise you will be served with high tea which is a selection of sandwiches, scones, cakes and luxury chocolates.
The experience is for two people and the seats are situated on a table for six, if you wish you can upgrade to a table for two when you make your booking. The Thames cruise in total takes 5 hours and finishes at Canary Wharf at 4pm.
If you want to view London from the Thames and dine on a ship which is fit for the Queen then this is definitely the London gift experience for you!
