The Savoy Relaunches Thames River Cruises on the Silver Darling

Publish Date: 01-Mar-2014

London Saturday, March 01, 2014

This summer The Savoy will once again offer luxury Thames River Cruises on board the Silver Darling, Woods’ Silver Fleet’s 15m high-speed river yacht. Available for private sightseeing cruises for up to 12 or for transfers to the O2 and other river destinations, the Silver Darling will be moored at Savoy Pier, just a short stroll from the riverside entrance. Guests visiting The Savoy’s bars and restaurants can also enjoy pre- or post-drinks and dining river trips on request.

The Savoy’s unique location at the point of the river’s curve makes for the most dramatic views across the Thames with a London vista stretching from Canary Wharf to the Houses of Parliament and beyond with seven of London’s bridges visible. The Silver Darling provides a unique and efficient way to travel for both business and leisure, bypassing city traffic and reaching Canary Wharf and the O2 in under 30 minutes. With its plush interiors featuring a limited edition diamond-dusted Damien Hirst artwork, state of the art sound system and an intimate deck, the Silver Darling is a luxurious base from which to enjoy a sightseeing experience with close-up views of such iconic London landmarks as the Palace of Westminster, the London Eye, Somerset House and Tower Bridge.

Available from 1 May – 28 September 2014, Wednesdays to Sundays, The Savoy’s Thames River Cruises are priced at £150 for 45 minutes private hire for up to 12 guests. Non-exclusive river trips are available at £55 per couple, subject to availability and on request. The Savoy Suite Welcome, which includes 24-hour Butler service, chauffeured car service with return airport/station transfers and local drop-off's, in-room private bar, WiFi and the pressing of one garment per person per stay, will also include a 45 minute private river cruise during these dates.

To enhance the River Cruise experience guests can pre-order champagne and a Kaspar’s Fruit de Mer hamper to enjoy on board.
