The Thames River winds through the heart of central London, offering travelers unrivaled views of some of the city’s most famous riverside landmarks, such as Big Ben. Here are a few ways to take to the water and see London from a different angle.


Highlights

  • Enjoy a seated lunch or dinner on a cruise, and take in panoramic views over the historic riverbanks.
  • Combine a sightseeing Thames River cruise with a visit to the Tower of London, and explore centuries of English history.
  • Get across the city without the hassle and take in the sights with ease on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing cruise.
  • Zoom across the river at top speeds, and enjoy wet and wild thrills aboard a powerful rigid-inflatable boat (RIB) tour.


Sightseeing Cruises

There’s no better way to beat the traffic than to travel through London by river. Hop-on hop-off boats pick up and drop off passengers at mooring stations along the length of the Thames, while sightseeing cruises ferry travelers across the waters for prime views of top attractions, such as the Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Tower of London, and Tower Bridge.


Cruises with Food and Drink

Whether for a relaxing lunch, refreshing afternoon tea, or romantic dinner, there’s a Thames River dining cruise for all occasions. Take to the water for panoramic city views, and savor dishes such as smoked salmon roulade, roast pepper and basil soup, or vegetarian lasagna as the sights pass by.


Combo Tours

Combo tours are a great way to mix a trip on the Thames River with a visit to some of central London’s most famous landmarks. Take to the water to see the historic riverbanks, and then pay a visit to attractions such as the London Eye or Tower of London. You’ll save money by booking a combo tour and enjoy a day of sightseeing in London.
