Bateaux London is the leading Restaurant Cruise experience on the River Thames in London, United Kingdom. The company specialises in scheduled restaurant cruises and private charters with on-board catering and live music entertainment. Bateaux London cruises operate on the Thames under licence from London River Services, part of Transport for London.
Dining services are carried out on Symphony and Harmony, operating daily lunch, afternoon tea and dinner cruises. All vessels are available for private hire, including third vessel Naticia.
The Symphony is London's largest restaurant cruise vessel. Her all-glass structure takes the Thames restaurant cruise experience into a different dimension, enabling guests to enjoy the magnificent views of London without any interruption.
Unlike more traditional boats, the wide expanse of glass, dark wooden flooring and sleek furniture bestow a bright and spacious atmosphere. She took part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant where it carried the London Philharmonic Orchestra, who performed music for the finale of the event.
Unique to the Thames, Scandinavian-designed Harmony features flexible layout for dining, private dining spaces and the largest open deck of over 250 square metres. Her bespoke private dining rooms are ideal for parties of twelve, twenty and thirty guests. Each area, big or small, benefits from large windows affording spectacular views, a great new London venue for corporate dining, celebrations and special occasions.
The traditional Naticia features mirrored and wooden interior with a split-level gallery overlooking the dance floor. She features excellent exterior viewing areas on both the upper and lower decks and is a popular choice for both restaurant cruises and private events on the Thames.
Scheduled services depart daily from Embankment Pier and travel both east and west along the Thames before returning.
Thames Lunch Cruises
Bateaux London offers guests spectacular views, a three course set lunch and after-lunch commentary. Each cruise will transport guests on a journey past sights both old and new, such as the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London and The EDF Energy London Eye.

Sunday Lunch Jazz Cruise
