Hop on and off any time at any of the five piers, to explore on foot
Then step aboard The London Eye for a bird's-eye view of London
Enjoy a more relaxing way of travelling around London, enjoying the sights on a river cruiser along the Thames. Board your city cruiser and head down the river to Greenwich. The cruise gives you an insight into the layers of history that have built up along the river, with great views of the Houses of Parliament, Tate Modern, St. Paul's and many more London landmarks. Anytime you want, you can hop off the boat at any one of four piers, explore and then hop back on later. Then make your way to The London Eye where you may have to queue a bit, but it'll be worth it when you climb aboard your capsule. The Eye slowly turns, giving you sensational panoramic views across London from 135 metres up.
Operates every day of the year from 10am to approximately 9pm, except Christmas Day. The London Eye is also closed for annual maintenance two weeks each January.
Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a participating adult. We are pleased to advise that the sightseeing boats and London Eye offer full wheelchair access.
Please note, City Cruises reserve the right, where necessary, to re-route vessels for reason of safety (in bad weather conditions or otherwise) without prior notice.
From Westminster Pier, the earliest departure is at 10am with others throughout the day (free to hop on or off the cruiser during any of the many stops). Flights on London Eye last 30 minutes and can be taken anytime during the day.
Numbers on the Day
The river cruiser carries a maximum of 250 passengers.
Spectators are welcome to wave from the river bank. Children under the age of four can ride the London Eye for free, and children under the age of five can go sightseeing for free.
If planning to explore London on foot, we'd recommend comfortable, flat shoes.
There are refreshment services on the cruiser. Smoking is not permitted on board. Please present the booking confirmation letter at the City Cruiser ticket desk in order to receive a day pass and London Eye tickets.
