Sail Into Spring

With half term already around the corner and the days getting longer and lighter, yes, thank you! We thought we’d focus on the River here in Greenwich and take a peek at what City Cruises is offering local families this Spring!

With a whopping eight and a half miles of River frontage, it’s hard not to ignore this unique ribbon of a natural feature that we luckily have on our doorsteps!

So what can one family, a half term and some imagination get up to when let loose?

City Cruises mothers day, valentines and half term activities

Sightseeing is the perfect way to take in the capital’s iconic riverside landmarks, whether sitting on the open upper deck or inside the heated and comfy saloon. Along the way, you’ll be treated to some informative and entertaining commentary from our captains on our fascinating city’s history and modern life!

For families, it is the most relaxing way to see the sights, avoiding the traffic and busy trains. Kids can get colouring sheets and pencils to keep them entertained, while parents can relax by sipping a hot drink and snacks from the fully stocked bar. For 50% off Sightseeing Cruises, use promo code JAN50, but this does expire Feb 12th. 

The Thamsejet will be right up your street for more adventurous and thrill-seeking among us. An exhilarating day out on the water with a Thames speedboat ride. Over 50 fun-filled minutes, you’ll see the best sights of London from Westminster down to Tower Bridge and experience adrenaline-pumping speed with fast-paced twists and turns on your way to Canary Wharf and back!

But what about all those special occasions we have coming up?

You can find your romantic side and soak up the sights for extra special dining on Valentine’s cruise. Fall in love or all over again over an afternoon tea, dinner or evening cruise option. With a single red rose and a glass of Champagne on arrival, enjoy the River’s magical ambience as you sail past London’s landmarks and illuminated bridges. It could even present the perfect stage for a romantic proposal.

And not forgetting Mother’s Day. Shower your mum or that special female member of your family with love and appreciation with a special Mother’s Day Cruise on the River Thames! Spoil her on an Afternoon Tea or Lunch cruise that she will truly love and remember. You and your special guest will be greeted with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, and whilst spending some quality time, enjoy cruising down the River taking in London’s iconic sights!

For Easter half term, you can make the most of London’s breathtaking riverside landmarks with a hop-on-hop-off river pass that lasts for 24 hours! For a great day out on the Thames for some egg-citing sightseeing fun! Take your pick of an open upper deck or comfortable indoor saloon where you can enjoy the entertaining and informative commentary and unrivalled views of London’s iconic sights. There’s so much to see and do along the Thames; with a hop-on hop-off ticket, London becomes your playground. 

This year, across the Easter weekend, you’ll find an egg-citing Easter Game where you can win a chocolate treat on board, available only from the 7th -the 10th of April. First come first served basis.
