MBNA Thames Clippers.
At the moment the Thames Clippers is running daily special mini cruises and serving a traditional cream tea complete with a glass of Champagne or glass of orange juice while basking in the glorious weather and stunning London views.
Cream tea is a smaller and lighter affair than the traditional British Afternoon Tea. It consists in tea, scones, jam and clotted cream.
It's a covered boat, so you are safe from inclement London weather. They also have an outside area for those must 'selfies'. The day I experience the cream tea cruise, it was humid and a little overcast, but that didn't matter, the dramatic weather just added another layer of interest to the proceedings.
This is an experience like no other as while taking in the city's sights including the Houses of Parliament, The Big Ben, Tower Bridge and The London Eye and many other iconic buildings with spellbinding past.
A blue badge guide provided a lively and fun commentary during the sailing while pointing out interesting landmarks from the river Thames and highlighting key dates and events from the capital’s history.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon on the Thames, eat, drink and get to know London a bit better. Such a great city! It last 1 hour so enough for a break in the afternoon - a really special treat!
Anything else is extra including water. They cater for special dietary requirements.
