City Cruises

They have window tables for the best views of the city and if you can’t make it their for Valentine’s Day, which falls on a Thursday this year, you’ll still be able to take the same great cruise over the weekend.


London by Night
This is an amazingly romantic, night-tour of London.  Take a ride on the London by Night double-decker bus, the views are spectacular! You’ll get to see all of London’s iconic landmarks lit up with a delightful ride along the embankment and plenty of views of the Thames from the top of a tour bus.
