Cruising in to Christmas with London Eye night flight:  Sunday 28th November or Tuesday 14th December.  The Christmas Cruise is great fun. While many of you will have been on the river during the day it is a truly different experience after dark. We start our tour at Historic Greenwich with time to visit the shops, museum and market before boarding our Thames cruiser. Inside The London Rose it’s warm and cosy with everyone guaranteed a choice of seats with terrific views in one of two saloons and the prospect of a hot chocolate or a Whisky Mac from the fully licensed bar. There’s plenty of room to move around and a huge open deck. You will really enjoy the quality and content of the commentary, a mix of historical information and Cockney Waterman’s humour that brings groups back year after year. We set off at 4-00pm from historic Greenwich and are soon passing The London Docklands a breath taking sight at night, a blaze of colour and light, our own mini Manhattan. It is a wonderful thing to sail beneath a flood lit Tower Bridge, quite stunning! Now we are in the Upper Pool of the Port of London passing the Tower of London, HMS Belfast and approaching London Bridge. The City of London owes its very existence to this majestic river, you’ll see The Monument and St. Paul’s Cathedral and then on to Bankside with Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the massive Tate Modern art gallery housed in the old power station. After 60 minutes cruising we step ashore on Westminster Pier. Our Blue Badge guide will be waiting for you on the pier to walk back to our coach just a few minutes away and begin an entertaining guided tour of the Christmas Lights & Sights in the West End and the City of London. To finish we have night flight on the London Eye. Built as part of the year 2000 millennium celebrations, the London Eye stands 135 metres high taking 30 minutes to travel one revolution. For those not wishing to ride on the London Eye there will be a £22.00 reduction in price.  Coach will depart Stevenage at 11.30, price £69.00 per person
