We've done tea at The Ritz, Pret-a-Portea at The Berkeley and even Japanese Sencha cocktails at Shoreditch's Drunken Monkey served prohibition style in an oriental tea pot.

But tea on The Thames was a new one on us til we discovered Bateaux London's version. While gliding past our favourite London landmarks – the London Eye to Tower Bridge – via the Tate Modern and St Paul's Cathedral, guests can enjoy traditional afternoon tea with a twist.

Munch on a delicious array of sandwiches, pastries and scones to the strains of the Naticia's resident pianist for £29.50 or if you really want to push the boat out (sorry couldn't resist) upgrade to the Champagne version for an extra tenner.

Boarding Wednesdays at 3.15pm from Embankment Pier. From 6 April.
