London visitors keen to escape the city’s hustle and bustle are being invited to experience tea on the Thames this spring, with the return of Bateaux London's afternoon tea cruises.

From April 2, on Wednesdays through to Saturdays, the company's flagship, Harmony, will weigh anchor to take guests on a 75-minute cruise, taking in some of the city’s most iconic landmarks. And, along with views of attractions such as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral, diners will be served a traditional English afternoon tea which includes an assortment of sandwiches, pastries, cakes and scones, accompanied by a range of quality teas and music.

A Classic Cruise costs £32 for adults and £21 for children, while a Premier Cruise, which includes a window table and glass of Champagne, costs £42 per adult. In addition, a flight on the London Eye can be added to either package for an additional £23 per adult and £17 per child.

The Harmony will board at 15.15, departing at 15.30 and returning at 16.45. Child rates apply to those aged between three and 12, however children under the age of three are not permitted on board.
