Entertainment: Dubious Roots

Food and Beverage: Complimentary drink, cash bar and canapes

Cruise: Three and a half hours past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round The O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier.

 

During the evening of Saturday, October 12, 2019, you will be wowed with the enchanting and ever-changing backdrop of London while cruising the River Thames aboard the large replica 19th century paddle steamer. 

The P.S. Dixie Queen is London’s largest entertainment, conference and party boat and a luxurious replica of a 19th century Mississippi Paddleboat. Until only recently she was Stockholm's favourite cruising Night Club, and the haunt of the younger members of the Royal Family.

Upon departure and arrival at Tower Pier, you will marvel as Tower Bridge is raised for the Dixie Queen to pass through, momentarily bringing London's busy traffic to a halt. Cruise on past Canary Wharf and historic Greenwich, round The O2 peninsula and through the Thames Barrier.

Newly refurbished and extended as part of the Millennium Commission's Thames 2000 project, Tower Pier is located on the north side of the River Thames by Tower Bridge. World-famous landmarks nearby include the adjacent Tower of London, HMS Belfast, the City of London financial district and of course the iconic Tower Bridge itself.

You will be welcomed aboard with the offer of a glass of sparkling wine, or beer or soft drink. Enjoy the views, and a selection of canapes with a cash bar, while being entertained by a local live band, Dubious Roots. Be prepared to dance the night away during this three and a half hour cruise.
