Discover the sights and history of London from the water on this leisurely cruise down the River Thames. With your 24-hour pass, enjoy unobstructed views of the city’s main riverside attractions like the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament from within an all-weather vessel, and hop on or off at any stop along the way. Create your own London adventure!
This flexible day cruise embarks every 40 minutes from four central London piers – Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier and Greenwich Pier. Board at your leisure and grab a seat in the glass-encased saloon or on the open deck. Sip on a hot or cold drink from the full-bar and enjoy panoramic views of the river as you set off.
Drift in warmth and comfort along the banks of the historic River Thames and discover London’s history through lively onboard commentary. Relax as the boat makes the entire 2.5-hour loop or hop off at any stop – another boat will be along in 20-30 minutes to pick you up. With your flexible pass, hop on and off as many times as you’d like throughout the day to visit iconic landmarks from Westminster to Greenwich and back again!
We would never miss an opportunity to take the Thames River Cruise! It is relaxing, it's a chance to rest your legs after busy London walking excursions, and it's absolutely wonderful to see the buildings and architecture along the water...fully explained by booklets with maps, and if lucky, an on-board narrator! The price is super affordable and because it is a hop-on Hop-off, you can customize it to your own timetable. There is a snack bar, so a little bag of munchies and cold drink or cup of tea make the cruise that much more enjoyable!
Awesome! Great travelling at the end of October. Loved the commentary, found it humourous and anecdotal loved just moseying around Greenwich Village. Had lunch and hopped back on and got out at St. Pauls. Lovely day.
Outstanding is a poor word to describe this cruise.
We had booked for this cruise while still at India, and the process of getting the vouchers exchanged for tickets and boarding the boat was pretty painless. The boat itself was a spotlessly clean and well kept craft. The commentary not the recorded one, but a live commentary was sardonic, with dry and self deprecating humor, and very very enjoyable. We did not do the hop-on-hop-off portions, opting to stay with the boat through the downstream run, and for a part of the upstream run. The history of the buildings, the waterfront pubs and quays, the bridges, and the amazingly built apartment blocks were entertaining and informative to learn about.
Highly recommended for anyone who wishes to see London from a different perspective
This river cruise, with the crew's commentary, was both enjoyable and informative. It provided a good general overview of the bridges and historic sites along the river with the convenience of our scheduling we had a 24 hour pass. It was a great introduction to London, for us!!
Loved the hop on hop off boat. Wish they stopped at more piers other than 4.
Fantastic way to see London! Loved the narrative and stories told by our guide.
A fantastic way to see the city. Great guides, humorous and detailed. Great bar service as well.
We joined the boat at Westminster Pier and travelled to Greenwich, in glorious sunshine, and enjoyed the commentary provided by one of the crew! It was a great way to see London and to learn some interesting facts about this great city.
We were very lucky and saw Tower Bridge open to allow a tall ship to pass through!
Our journey back was just as much fun!
We LOVED this cruise and our day in Greenwich. The tour guide on the boat was a hoot! And local to boot. He was really a boatman, not a tour guide. Everything about this day was great.
Great tour guides
