An evening cruise on the River Thames

There’s nothing more refreshing than gaining a new perspective on something familiar. Than witnessing the magic all over again, of something you have become accustomed to.

I got exactly that with London a couple of days ago when my brother and I went on an evening cruise from Westminster pier with City Cruises.

I saw London with completely new eyes. I admired London’s skyline glisten against the winter night sky and I soaked up London’s iconic landmarks as I floated beside them.

I for one know that I take living in this incredible city for granted. I rush around it day in and day out, between meetings, to jobs and often completely miss looking up and around at the gorgeous landmarks and history in front of me.

Needless to say, it was so nice this week to step on board an evening cruise at Westminster pier with my brother and toast a glass of bubbly as we meandered down the Thames to Greenwich and back.

I would highly recommend booking this evening cruise if you’re looking for those iconic views of London with a special touch. The two hour cruise is the perfect way to step back and spend some quality time with a loved one, romantically or not.

With canapés, a glass of bubbly and live music included in your cruise ticket – I would push it as the perfect pre dinner experience.

We hopped on at 6.15pm, departing from Westminster pier at 6.30pm and returned to the same place two hours later.

Note: There’s a fully stocked bar on board to buy additional beverages and bar snacks from. There’s also an open top seating area that you can use should you wish brave the cold on the winter evenings.

Though seeing a city by twilight is always the most magical in my opinion, there are lunch, dinner and afternoon tea cruise options available too!
