Round-Trip River Thames Sightseeing Cruise

Experience the grandeur of London's magnificent skyline and world famous sights on a fun and relaxing round-trip cruise along the historic River Thames.

Enjoy a circular cruise from Westminster Pier or Waterloo Pier (The London Eye), encompassing some of Londons best-known and best-loved sights, while multi-lingual narration provides insight into the history that has shaped the passing skyline.

As you leisurely meander along the river, discover new sights at every turn including the timeless majesty of the Houses of Parliament, the spectacular dome of St Pauls Cathedral, the historic Tower of London and the modern splendour of the London Eye, Millennium Bridge and Tate Modern.

See Tower Bridge and The Globe Theatre and those cruising to Greenwhich will also see Docklands: historic Wapping and Limehouse to the north, Bermondsey and Rotherhithe to the south. Many of the old docks have disappeared while those that remain now play host to yachtsmen, weekend sailors and narrowboats.

As you approach Canary Wharf, the new commercial face of Docklands is revealed and along the river banks new residential, commercial and leisure developments continue to spring up.

The commentary is informative but not boring and may include a few colourful local stories. You needn't go hungry or thirsty either - refreshments and light snacks are available on board from the bar.
