London attractions: Sit back and relax on a Thames River Cruise
Published: Monday 20th of May 2013
The Thames river is one of the most famous of its kind and therefore it is not really surprising that it is one of the most popular hotspots among cruisers looking for things to do in London.
One of the best ways to see the capital is to hop aboard the Thames River Cruise, which glides by other famous attractions such as the site of the Cutty Sark and the Tate Modern.
The cruise itself was actually established in 1974 and used to feature just one boat, which would take guests on short rides between Caversham and Mapledurham.
Nowadays however, it crosses the paths of all the major London attractions and includes a full range of dining options on board, complete with karaoke parties, live music and discos.
The boats are designed to go out in all types of weather and really allow visitors to see a side of London that they may never have experienced before.
This attraction is suitable for all ages and tastes with entertainment for the entire family. Guests are also given the option of taking group bookings and making reservations when necessary.
