What people are saying about England

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea experience. We booked it to give our college age kids a fun British experience while on holiday over Christmas. The staff was lovely and very attentive and the ambience was great. Because they were very busy we did have to wait a few minutes to be seated. But once we were seated it was a lovely experience and worth every penny to us. Our 19 and 21 year old said it was one of their favorite things we did on our trip!

This was a lot of fun and one of the most relaxing things we did on our trip. After you have finished your tea make sure you head to the upper deck to get some great pictures as you pass by the different sights. On the way back is when they highlight the different sights

Regardless of the weather which was average, the tour is awesome. Quality food, top service and possibility to take your drink to go

Fantastic service and stunning views of our beautiful city from the river totally recommend this day
