Hop on and off any time at any of the four piers, to explore on foot
Then step aboard The London Eye for a bird's-eye view of London
Get away from the crowded streets and enjoy a more relaxing approach to sightseeing with a cruise along the Thames. Board your vessel and head downstream to Greenwich. This cruise gives a unique perspective and superb views of the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's and Tate Modern and many more London landmarks. Why not hop on and off at one of the four piers during your cruise should you wish to explore? Afterwards you can then make your way to The London Eye where you may have to queue a little, but it'll certainly be worth it. Once you have reached the top of the eye (135 feet), enjoy incredible panoramic views of London.
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). Flight on the London Eye lasts 30 minutes and can be taken anytime during the day.
