    "The Afternoon Tea on the 8th November was fantastic, I had arrange this as a gift for my mothers 50th birthday and it certainly did not disappoint. The afternoon tea itself was great, sandwiches were delicious and mini cakes were just fantastic. There was clearly no expense spared. The timing was perfect, during our trip it started to get dark and all the lights started to appear. I would just like to say thank you very much for making my mum's birthday gift such a joy! We will definitely be using Discount London again!"

  • "Afternoon tea on the Thames"

    "It was my 40th birthday & I decided to book this for 10 of my family, no children just adults. The boat was very clean & the service was 5 star. You could tell it was my birthday by all the balloons that was attached to me & the glittery hat. The staff were so happy to have pictures taken with me & they took the cake I brought aboard & put my candles on. They brought it out & got everyone singing! As you are eating the yummy cakes, you are informed of the sites that you are going past. I would highly recommend this. "

  • "Afternoon Tea Cruise On the Thames"

    "We booked this cruise as a celebration of our daughters 18th birthday. What an absolutely delightful and relaxing afternoon. The boat was not at all overcrowded and there was plenty of room to move around and enjoy the afternoon. The food was lovely and plentiful and the tea just kept flowing. After eating we moved to the top deck where the captain gave us a very interesting commentary whilst we travelled down the Thames. I would definitely recommend this trip to all my family and friends. Great value for money and felt like a special occasion. Do not hesitate book now. "

  • "The Best of Both Worlds"

    "What could be better than cruising along the historical Thames River on a sunny day? Enjoying a cream tea while taking in the sights, with emphasis on the enjoyment. First class all the way from the time you board until the time you disembark. Silver service with waiting staff in full uniform. Presentation is paramount and the food could not have been bettered. Fresh sandwiches, small cakes and fruit scones with butter, strawberry jam and clotted cream - all served at your own table. Plenty of tea or coffee on hand. Alcohol and soft drinks available to purchase. Enjoy the historical commentary about the buildings you are seeing. Ideal for any occasion and suitable for any ages. A good way to make a special occasion even more special. I would highly recommend it."

    "Truly lovely trip. From the moment we boarded, the staff were smiling and friendly. Tea /coffee was served to us immediately and continued to flow throughout the afternoon. Plenty of fresh sandwiches,, scones and mini cakes. Warm sunny weather was an added bonus and we were able to sit on the outer deck when we finished tea. Thinking of returning with my grandson during his summer holidays."
