Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
THE LONDON Showboat offers a unique dinner and cabaret cruise on the River Thames, with a four-course meal, live music and dancing. The price includes a welcome drink and half a bottle of wine with the meal.
The cruise begins at Westminster Millennium Pier and continues towards the Thames Barrier, passing the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, the O2 Millennium Dome and other familiar sights en route.
On the return journey, the resident cabaret singer will entertain guests with a repertoire for all occasions and moods, including songs from famous London West End musicals.
