Description

See the best of Central London and beyond from the iconic Thames River. This special cruise glides you to leafy green Greenwich past countless city highlights, including the Houses of Parliament, St Paul's Cathedral, Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge and more!

Board your comfy cruiser at the famous Westminster Pier and see the Houses of Parliament - the scene of good (and bad?) British decision-making.

Glide past the London Eye, taking in the graffiti on the trendy Southbank. As you reach St Paul's Cathedral, consider the foundation stone was laid in 1675, which incidentally was the same year King Charles II of England banned coffeehouses! Don't worry, you can buy a brew on the boat.

See Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and go from the Bard to the brutalist architecture of the Tate Modern. Then pass under the famed Tower Bridge, the only Thames bridge which can be raised.

Cruise by Canary Wharf and wave at the office workers in their suits, before winding up in bucolic Greenwich. It's a London must for history buffs and a great trip out on the water.
