An afternoon can be spent cruising down the Thames alongside a cityscape of some of the capital's most eminent landmarks. Leaving dry land behind at Westminster Pier, individuals or parties of two or four can enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea during their voyage, which lasts approximately two and a half hours. After choosing from a variety of teas and coffees, diners can taste a selection of savoury morsels, including cheese and nutmeg polenta, and salami and mortadella sausage with tomato. Classic combinations such as egg and cress or ham and mustard mayonnaise comprise a set of sandwiches. Desserts including carrot cake or éclairs sweeten the occasion, and a customary serving of scones with fruit preserve and cream is also on offer.
