Sail into a stunning VIP eveningAn Historic Reception Venue
The Greenwich Heritage Centre is the reception location for you at the beginning of the evening. At the time of Henry VIII, this building served as a Royal Dockyard before later becoming part of the Royal Arsenal. Once everybody is ready you will walk over to the Royal Arsenal Pier where you will board your Tall Ship. The friendly crew will give you a warm welcome, taking care of you and your company on board as you then cast off and set course upriver towards Tower Bridge.
A Route full of highlights
Cruising on the Thames aboard one of the Tall Ships you will be blessed with stunning views of the sights of London, the perfect place to soak up the sights and sounds of this capital city in full swing. During the trip you will pass through the Thames Barrier, towards the Emirates Air-Line and the O2 Arena with fantastic views of Canary Wharf. The route continues along by the Old Royal Naval College, the Royal Observatory, Greenwich Park and the Cutty Sark all in central riverside Greenwich before cruising on to Tower Bridge. On route you will sail from the western to the eastern hemisphere and back, passing through the 0° meridian.
