Cruise your way around the most iconic London attractions
If you are excited at the prospect of gliding past some of the most iconic London attractions that exist within the city, then you’re in for a treat.
Most people want sun, sea and sand from their holiday, and while we cannot guarantee the sand, there is plenty at sea.
The most obvious place to start is the River Thames. This river is so famous that it even has a twin in London - Canada. That’s right, Ontario Canada has its very own River Thames running through a city which funnily enough, is also named, London.
But if you want to visit the London, then hop onboard the Thames River Boat Cruise in London, UK.
The cruise was launched in 1974, and its first service ran from Caversham to Mapledurham. It has since ballooned into a city-wide cruise, with boats travelling all over the city.
These huge boats weave their way through the heart of the city, past some of the most popular attractions.
It is one of the few attractions that incorporate the London Eye, the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower Bridge Experience, plus many more.
The great thing about these cruises is the flexibility. If you wanted to hop off at any point, to explore any of the attractions in more detail, you can do just that and then pop back on when it suits you.
While you are onboard, guests will be able to enjoy the luxurious and comfortable surroundings.
Not only does the cruise include full catering facilities, it also contains no shortage of entertainment.
Whether you want to jive to jazz music, try your hand at singing with their karaoke nights, or dance the night away at the discos, these river rides have it all.
And if you want to continue the boat theme, then you’re in luck. This cruise also sails by the Cutty Sark, Canary Wharf, as well as HMS Belfast, the retired battle-cruiser.
And if that’s not enough, why not try Jason’s Canal Boat Trip? These boat trips set off again on April 6th of this year, while bookings open again on March 18th.
The trips have been in operation since the 50s and runs between Little Venice and Camden lock. Guests can choose from a 45 minute one-way trip to Camden Lock home to the famous weekend market, or a return trip which lasts an hour and 30 minutes.
It offers one of the best views of London Zoo in the city, and it also glides past the London Canal Museum and the Lord’s Cricket Tours.
And finally, to top it all off, if you haven’t quite had your fill of the beautiful rivers which run through the heart of London, then you can also take the French Brothers Cruise around the city.
Prepare to be wowed by such wonders such as the Windsor Castle and Eton College attractions, which can be viewed from this cruise .
There will also be trained and knowledgeable crew guides who will talk about the cultural and historical stories behind the sites.
