- Sailing from: London
A fascinating trip and a great way to see parts of the city only visible by river. The trip usually starts in the Pool of London and we arrange for Tower Bridge to be opened especially for us (subject to pier availability) as we proceed down river, past St Katherine Dock, Canary Wharf, Greenwich and through the Thames Barrier. On a day sail, we usually get as far as the QEII bridge before returning back up river and through the bridge again. On shorter cruises we may get to the Barrier before turning.
NB. The Thames is a very busy and quite windy river, hence we do not guarantee the setting of sails – this trip is more of a leisurely sightseeing tour.
Typical menu (day sails. Other cruise food options may vary).
Mid morning Coffee or Tea & Biscuits
Lunch: Rosemary Chicken with thick tomato sauce
(v) Butternut Squash with Cheesy Leeks (by pre-order only)
Hot new Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables
Chocolate Brownie with Forest Fruits & Cream
Coffee or tea
Afternoon tea or Coffee with Homemade Cake.
