Celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style this year with an exclusive 1952 Jubilee Tea on the London Eye Barracuda as you cruise the River Thames.

Take to the river on board our beautiful vintage boat, cruising to the sounds of ‘The Rockabellas’! Combining cute choreography and top to toe pin up couture, the girls will be serving up a perfectly nostalgic repertoire featuring toe-tapping tunes from wartime songbirds Anne Shelton, Vera Lynn and The Andrews Sisters whilst you indulge in a specially selected tea party menu. Why not get into the true spirit of the celebrations by dressing for the occasion?
