This represents not only excellent value for your money but also a unique opportunity to enjoy a traditional English afternoon tea whilst enjoying the delights of the River Orwell from the Orwell Lady.

Important note : If you have a food allergy or special dietary requirements then please ensure that you inform or the Tourist Information Centre at the time of booking.

The price quoted for all our cruises, with or without food provided, are totally all-inclusive, no "hidden extras" (except bar purchases), and no compulsory service charges. What we say you will pay is what you do pay!

Please note: On these cruises we provide a substantial Afternoon Tea - we emphasise this because a large lunch just prior to the cruise may impair the ability to take full advantage of the delicious sandwiches, cakes and scones which will be served.

Numbers will be strictly limited to around 55 per cruise so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
