London River Cruises

By Viator, September 2014

4.5 64 Reviews | Add your review

From the dramatic arches of Tower Bridge to the dazzling lights of the London Eye, the Thames riverside is home to many of London’s most iconic landmarks and there are few better ways to take in the sights than by cruising through its heart. London river cruises offer unbeatable views along the picturesque waterfront, including attractions like London Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, the HMS Belfast and the South Bank Arts Complex, but best of all, there’s a plethora of different water tours to choose from.

Choose from a scenic cruise, an adrenaline-fueled speedboat ride or a unique land and sea adventure on a London Duck (a transformer-esque bus that double up as boat), or add an edge to your sightseeing trip by combining boat tickets with a ride on the London Eye, a visit to Madame Tussauds or a tour of the Tower of London.  You could even opt for a Hop on Hop off boat cruise or a Thames Clipper River Roamer pass, which allow a full day of boat transport between Millbank, Greenwich Pier, Woolwich and Embankment.

Alternatively, make the most of the views by eating on board — lunch and dinner cruises are available, along with traditional English Afternoon Tea. You could even spice things up with a sunset night cruise; a Jazz lunch cruise, accompanied by live jazz musicians or a Showboat cruise, where dinner is served up with cabaret entertainment. You can even celebrate the festive season on the water by enjoying a traditional Christmas lunch on board or join in the celebrations on a New Year’s Eve party cruise.
