  • About

    Enjoy the sights on a river cruiser along the Thames. Board a city cruiser and head down the river to Greenwich. The cruise gives a real 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, hop off the boat at any one of four piers, go and explore and hop back on later. Tickets to the Tower of London, the magnificent medieval fortress on the north bank of the Thames by Tower Bridge, are also included in this experience. The Tower is one of London's must-see attractions; teeming with history, it has been a royal residence, a prison and the scene of many executions.

    • An all-day ticket for a Thames Cruiser
    • Great views of London from the water
    • Hop on and off any time at any of the five piers, to explore on foot
    • Includes entry to the Tower of London, William the Conqueror's magnificent Thames-side fortress

    The whole day was effortless. The weather was gorgeous, which always helps but picking tickets up and getting to the venue was very easy and hassle free. The cruise was clean and the staff gave a witty commentary which made us laugh. The Tower was fantastic with lots to see and do. The return journey was just as easy and I would definitely recommend this trip.
