A glass-panelled boat passes St Paul's Cathedral.

Join the Floating Candlelight Dinner for a very special evening of food, music, and views.

A cruise down the Thames is something every Londoner really needs to do at some stage in their life. But if you don’t fancy hopping in a canoe, or fancy something a little more sedate than the fast clipper from Greenwich, then we’ve got just the thing. Fever are launching a floating candlelight dinner this summer, and it’s perhaps the dreamiest date idea we’ve ever seen. Part candlelight concert, part dinner, and all kinds of charming, the cruise sets off on May 27 at 6pm, and you can find your tickets here.

Guests will see the sight of Tower Bridge on the Floating Candlelight Dinner

Setting off from Embankment Pier, you’ll board a stunning modern vessel, complete with an all-glass exterior and nautical-themed interiors created by Tom Dixon Design. The entire space will be lit with softly flickering candlelight, and as the boat moves off into the summer evening, the feast will begin. You’ll be treated to an exquisite three-course meal, kicking off with a roasted courgette, green olive, and basil tart. From there, it’s onto roast chicken with pea “a la Française” and minted new potatoes, before finishing with a tantalising violet panna cotta with strawberry and elderflower. Vegan and vegetarian options will also be available.

The Floating Candlelight Dinner cruise moves past Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

Perhaps the highlight of the cruise, though, is the mesmerising candlelight concert that will unfold as you cruise past the sights of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral, Shakespeare’s Globe, and more. Bringing the peerless compositions of Ludovico Einaudi to live, a renowned pianist will help soundtrack what’s sure to be an unforgettable evening. All aboard!
