Step aboard your sightseeing cruise boat at Tower Pier on the north bank of the Thames River, central London. Settle into a seat at your window-side table, and gaze out at the city sights as you start cruising west into the heart of London.
Following a round-trip route to Westminster, your cruise takes in several top London attractions and landmark sights. As you pass the imposing Tower of London, framed by the slick buildings of the city’s Square Mile, look south to see a gaggle of the capital’s big-name sights. Gaze out at the Shard — Western Europe’s tallest building — and watch the hustle and bustle taking place around County Hall and the vibrant South Bank.
Tear your eyes away from South Bank's hive of activity for further sights such as Shakespeare’s Globe, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. As you cruise, a delicious 2-course meal of traditional British fare is served by your onboard staff. Drinks are not included, but the boat’s bar boasts a large selection of wine, beer and non-alcoholic options. Simply make your way over and purchase drinks at your own expense.
After 1.5 hours on the Thames River, hop back onto dry land back at Tower Pier where your cruise ends.
