The Silver Sturgeon

About The Silver Sturgeon

Think London and you probably think Thames. The beating heart of London, the Thames river is an icon in itself, meandering past landmarks recognised the world over, taking in sights and sounds, history and mystery. Enjoy all this waterway has to offer in true luxury on board one of Silver Fleet's four vessels which combine fine dining with a relaxed river cruise. From the 586 capacity Silver Sturgeon to the Queen's own Royal Nore with space for just thirty carefully chosen guests, the level of food and service is extraordinarily high with menus prepared exclusively by Rhubarb on the River.

Tables can be booked individually for special events including the classic Veuve Clicquot Cruise.

On board the Silver Sturgeon, the Veuve Clicquot Cruise is a glamorous meander down the river in the company of fine champagne and excellent food. Step aboard at Savoy Pier on Victoria Embankment and sip a glass of bubbly on the sun deck as the vessel takes in spectacular views from Westminster to Greenwich and back again. Dine on a delicious three course affair complemented by fine wines carefully chosen by Silver Fleet's own sommelier
DATES: Friday’s in 2008 - August 15th and 22nd, September 12th and 26th, October 10th and 24th and November 14th and 28th.
