London’s most impressive bridges at night

For Saturday 12th November 2022 at 7:00 PM there is an optional pre-cruise dinner at Efes in Whitechapel for networking or being with family or meeting new/old friends. The dinner is not included in the price and you need to pay for it yourself.

The Illuminated River project is transforming the capital at night, lighting 9 bridges on the River Thames between London to Lambeth bridges, making it the longest public art commission in the world. The first four bridges were illuminated in 2019: London, Cannon Street, Southwark, and Millennium bridges. Earlier this year five more bridges were lit up: Blackfriars, Waterloo, Golden Jubilee, Westminster, and Lambeth bridges.

Internationally acclaimed artist Leo Villareal and British architectural practice Liftschutz Davidson Sandilands have used the latest LED technology to ‘paint with light’, producing beautiful patterns that subtly unfold across the bridge structures.

The artwork is best experienced from the river itself, so join the official tour guide on board as they take you on an evening boat journey, and learn all about these great landmarks of London.

Onboard you’ll find a café bar selling a selection of refreshments to make your journey even more pleasant.
