Afternoon Cream Tea Cruise 2019 - M.V Jewel of London - Departing Festival Pier

Great afternoon! Highly recommended

Afternoon Cream Tea Cruise

What an absolute lovely experience. All the staff were helpful, friendly and So polite. The boat was beautiful inside. The afternoon tea was beautiful I am vegetarian so I had extra sandwiches (normally as a Vegetarian you get a plain cheese sandwhich) however I got a beautiful goats cheese and roasted vegetable selection. It's the nicest afternoon tea we have ever had, simply delicious. The tour had excellent commentary and were able to see a lot of sights. I have never been to London before and this made the day so special. Highly recommended this excellent value experience and would honestly go again. Thank you.
