The River Thames – experience the magic of a London River Cruise 

Why cruise the River Thames?

Not only is the River Thames the longest river in England, but it is also the birthplace of London as we know it today. The banks of the River Thames are packed with some of the most important modern and historical cultural landmarks of London—no wonder London Cruises are in such high demand! The landmarks of London are awe-inspiring destinations, but there is nothing quite like seeing them from the views onboard these London boat trips. 

Use a London River Tour to check these landmarks off your list:

  • The Houses of Parliament (Palace of Westminster) has been the seat of government in England since the 13th Century, and are a sight to behold. 
  • The London Eye watches Parliament from directly across the Thames, and the gorgeous Tower Bridge hangs beautifully above as you sail below it. 
  • You’ll also catch mesmerizing views of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the Tower of London
  • As if these sights weren't enough to keep you captivated on your London river tour, you also have the option for a lunch cruise or dinner cruise while you take in these astounding landmarks.
