London Area Hotel ★★★★

You will be staying in one of a range of comfortable, four-star hotels in the Greater London area, such as the Novotel Heathrow or the Crowne Plaza, Maidenhead. All bedrooms will have private facilities, telephones, satellite TV, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. All hotels will have good restaurant and bar facilities. Some of our hotels may also have other facilities.

Further Information

Viewing the fireworks

Due to changing tides, river traffic and weather conditions, we are unable to confirm or guarantee the exact position your vessel will moor at to take in the views of the midnight fireworks display. The crew will endeavour to secure the best position possible for viewing of the display.

Returning to your hotel

Please note that central London is extremely busy on New Year's Eve and you may not get back to your hotel until 2.30am after the cruise.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.


Please note that due to the many road closures in central London on New Year's Eve there is a fair amount of walking involved on this tour, from the restaurant to the pier to join the boat and then from the pier to meet the coach afterwards. This tour is really not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

Shrewsbury Couple
A disastrous new year celebration due to poor organisation, a lack of communication and a most disappointing cruise. We saw a blurred firework display through a dirty glass roof, from a boat facing the wrong way. After over an hour wait, we were herded onto a barge, without the advised security checks. Noone even checked our tickets. The party atmosphere was non existent with no music, disgusting toilet facilities and a very poor bar. The journey down to London began at 8am and involved seven pick up points, before four and a half hours later we were on our way to London. We arrived at our hotel at 2:30pm. A fellow passenger requested a comfort stop and was told there was no plan for one as there was a toilet on the coach. I felt this was totally unacceptable. When the tour manager boarded the coach at the penultimate pick up point, she agreed to stop as soon as the driver could find somewhere appropriate. We stopped for 15 minutes at a small road side garage and cafe. The toilets were absolutely filthy! We dashed across the garage forecourt to purchase a coffee to take out- as time was short, we had been told to bring drinks back with us to save time. The travel through London left me feeling ill at ease, with the driver hitting a bollard and also ignoring several red traffic lights. Suffice to say we (and two other parties) decided to return home on New Year's Day by train at our own expense. Hotel, food and facilities were adequate but we have stayed at better London airport hotels, on weekend London breaks.

Barry Family
The whole point of the trip was to see the fireworks from the Thames in a celebratory party atmosphere. We took out two teenage children with us to enjoy the party. We waited over 90 minutes to get on the boat in the cold before getting on the boat. We did not get the boat with a dj, bar and party. Instead we got an overcrowded river taxi with blocked toilets, no music and no view of the fireworks. As a consequence, our teenage children do not want to go on any excursions with us again. Thank you Newmarket. Thoroughly disappointed and feel totally exploited and let down.
