Building on the success of its Shakespeare cruises, City Cruises is set to run a comprehensive programme of cultural cruises, launching this month.

Culture vultures will be able to take their pick from themed trips including The Great Fire of London and Georgian London to Bridges and Landmarks, Shakespeare and Liquid London.

The evening cruises, running Wednesday – Sunday evenings, at 19:30, include a glass of bubbly and canapes for cruisers to enjoy on board as they glide past London’s most iconic sights and learn about the city’s fascinating history.

Tourists looking for something a little more dramatic will have the option of booking a Shakespeare cruise and will be treated to a dining experience, hosted by Elizabethan party goers Falstaff and Cleopatra leading proceedings using Shakespearean language.

Prices start from £30 per person (aged 16+) and include canapes, a welcome glass of bubbly, one-and-a-half-hour cruise and expert commentary.
