    More details:


    For five days this April, the Tall Ships will be back in London for your viewing and cruising pleasure. Falling over the Easter weekend, and with ticket options available for all ages, it’s the perfect family day out and a great chance to be a part of the action. Don't just look on from the river banks, whether you opt for the standard, fireworks, VIP option or the parade of sail, one of these magnificent cruises will take you from the Greenwich Heritage Centre and the Woolwich Royal Arsenal Pier past the lovely sights on the banks of the Thames in Royal Greenwich, including the commercial heartland of Canary Wharf.

    Tall-masted sailing ships will grace the east end of the Thames with their presence during this river festival, so it's well worth a visit. Add in the chance to look over the loftily masted vessels from aboard as you sail down the river and you've got yourself one heck of an experience. Book your tickets now from £44.90.


    Thames Tall Ship Cruise
    Step aboard one of the Tall Ships at Royal (Woolwich) Arsenal Pier, Woolwich for a two-hour voyage through the Thames Barrier, past the O2 Arena, Emirates Air-Line, Canary Wharf, Queens House and The Royal Observatory. You'll even pass from the eastern hemisphere into the western, crossing the Meridian Line (which in evenings is marked by a laser). After passing the Old Naval College and recently re-opened Cutty Sark, the ship will return to Royal Arsenal.

    Thames Tall Ship Cruise + Fireworks
    The sailing route of this cruise is the same as the regular cruise, but includes a fabulous display of pyrotechnics. Watch the Fireworks on the river from a unique vantage point on board and end your cruise with a bang.

    VIP Thames Tall Ship Cruise + Tower Bridge + Fireworks
    Push the boat out Tall Ship style by embarking on this all-evening river cruise that promises glitz and glamour. Start with a welcome drink before a delicious buffet dinner served by the crew, in addition to various savoury snacks. At the end of the evening, you'll be privy to a special fireworks display that promises a memorable end to an exquisite evening.

    VIP Parade of Sail
    Apart from being part of the Parade, cruising on the Thames aboard one of the Tall Ships will bless you with stunning views of the sights of London. During the cruise you will pass by at a close distance the 35-40 Tall Ships that will participate in the Parade of Sail. A spectacular experience, the highlight of the event.
