Tour description provided by Viator

Party your way down London’s Thames River this New Year’s Eve on a sightseeing cruise! Aboard a spacious and stylish boat, celebrate the New Year as you wish – either dancing to music from the onboard DJ or standing out on deck and watching sights live the London Eye and Houses of Parliament pass by. Countdown to midnight in time with the chimes of Big Ben, enjoy a celebratory shot and watch an incredible firework display from the water! The 4-hour cruise finishes at Tower Pier in the early hours of New Year’s Day.

Leave Tower Pier on New Year’s Eve and cruise down the Thames River in the direction of Greenwich. Your route takes in all the top London attractions that line the banks of this famous river, and you’ll have several opportunities to see them as your boat glides back and forth. Prepare to be dazzled by sights of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the London Eye and beautiful Tower Bridge – all specially illuminated for New Year’s Eve.

Order a drink from your boat’s onboard bar (own expense), and then either head out on deck to see the sights or dance the night away to music from your DJ. The music selection includes all the old-school classics!

As midnight approaches, countdown to 2015 in time to Big Ben’s chimes, and then ring in the new year with a celebratory shot. A dazzling New Year’s Eve fireworks display takes place in central London each year, and you’ll be perfectly placed to see the skies lit up with a dazzling array of color.

Return to Tower Pier in the early hours of the morning, and step back onto dry land, finishing your cruise.
