Teatime On The Thames: The Ultimate Afternoon Tea To Book This Summer

Afternoon Tea
9th August 2022

Picture this: it’s a sunny Saturday, Mum’s visiting and you’re about to tuck into London’s best afternoon tea complete with scones, cakes and as much tea (or Champagne) as you could want. Oh, and you’re blissfully cruising along the Thames. Sound like a little slice of heaven? Read on to find out how you can experience it for yourself. 

Step aboard Bateaux London, the luxury dining cruise that offers something for everyone. Whether you’re after tea and cake, a lunchtime catch-up with friends or an intimate date night with a difference, it blends five-star cuisine with an outstanding guest experience. Pair that with breathtaking views across the Thames and some of London’s most iconic landmarks, it’s a dining experience you won’t want to miss.

For the afternoon tea revellers celebrating Afternoon Tea Week (8th-14th August), Bateaux London has reintroduced three tailored tea experiences to pick and choose, from the classic afternoon tea experience to the extra luxurious free-flowing champagne experience. 

Every afternoon tea is packed full of savoury snacks and tasty treats. Look forward to tucking into sandwiches filled with coronation chicken; egg and cress; Scottish salmon and lemon dill cream cheese bagels; cucumber, mint and cream cheese; and onion bhaji wraps. Before heading onto the jam and cream covered plain and fruit scones – yum. 

Finish with a selection of their indulgent cakes, from battenburg to salted caramel eclairs, white chocolate carrot cake to lemon meringue tart. 

Looking for a perfect tea to catch-up with friends over? Try the Afternoon Tea package. It’s packed with several rounds of sandwiches, a selection of great teas (including some delicious fruity numbers) and Bateaux London’s famous cake selection. Enjoy this two-hour cruise, taking in the views of landmarks like Tate Modern, St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge, and catching up with friends.

If you’re after something a little bit bubblier than tea, their Afternoon Tea with Champagne experience is worth snapping up. Add in a glass of Champagne to the standard package to enhance your celebrations even further. 

Or, those looking to go all out, get the party started with free-flowing Champagne! Their Free-Flowing Champagne Afternoon Tea package is packed with delicious treats and bottomless Champagne or pink Brut. The perfect package for those celebrating birthdays or catching up with friends and family in a fun new way. 

What better way to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week?

Tickets start from £69 per person, but an upgrade to the free-flowing champagne option costs just £99. You can book a gift voucher option too, ideal for birthday presents or anniversary gifts.
