Refreshments (available in the on-board bar)
  • Depart on a Thames cruise from Westminster Pier, and see landmarks like Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, the London Dungeon and more
  • Hop on (or off) at other piers, including Embankment Pier, Festival Pier, Bankside Pier, and St Katharine's Dock
  • Admire London's iconic skyline and get some fascinating and surprising tidbits with the live guide's engaging commentary

London's Thames winds its way through the Big Smoke past some of the city's national treasures. Take your seat and enjoy your guide's commentary on the best bits as you see Westminster Abbey, the Cabinet War Rooms, the London Eye, Tower Bridge and more!

Take your seat, listen, and learn as your guide fills you in on the fascinating and surprising history as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and other British landmarks pass on by.

Want to stretch your legs? Hop on or hop off the boat at a number of piers along the route. Get a drink at St Katharine's Pier, or stop off at Embankment Pier, Festival Pier or Bankside Pier.

The best way to see the British capital is by boat, and unlike when you walk around in the London drizzle, you don't even have to get wet.

Insider tip

Did you know that two-thirds of London's drinking water comes from the River Thames? We don't recommend leaning over the side to drink it, but it'll give you something else to think about as you watch London's landmarks passing you by on this Thames cruise.
