Update - Return to Service




Dear valued customer,

following Government's advice, we are pleased to announce that we reopend on the 4th of July. 

In order to do this, we have implemented a series of enhanced hygiene measures and social distancing guidelines. For a detalied list of all the safety and hygiene measures we are implementing, please take a look here here.  

If you have any queries about your booking before our opening day, please take a look at our FAQ page



We are proud to have acquired the Visit Britain "We're good to go" industry standard, and the AA "COVID-18 Confident" accreditation. 

Acquiring these marks mean that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, we have a Risk Assessment in place and a process to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. You can read more about these procedures below.

Safety measures

At City Cruises we pride ourselves on our brand values; being fun, passionate, welcoming and expert. And whilst these values have not changed, after conducting risk assessments across all areas of our business, we have introduced a number of health and safety measures to ensure that we can continue to offer our guests a different view of London, Poole and York. In line with Government advice, and working alongside local legislative bodies, we have reduced the risk of contact with COVID-19 across all of our locations.

Rule of 6:

Whilst we await further advice regarding the recently introduced "Rule of 6", we are able to accommodate more than 6 people in total aboard our sightseeing and dining vessels, but you may only visit in a group of 6 people maximum. For groups of more than 6 people who are not from the same household, you will need to make separate bookings of up to 6 people, and then arrive and queue in groups of up to 6 people. You will be socially distanced whilst on board, and will then be required to disembark as a group of up to 6 people.

Whilst this rule remains in place, our self drive motor boats can be hired by groups of up to 6 people maximum (or up to 8 if you are all from the same household).

Please note that we are currently asking customers to wear a face covering on our sightseeing boats. 

We look forward to welcoming you on board soon! Thank you and stay safe.
