A one-way cruise from Westminster Pier to Greenwich.
From US$ 16.42
A return cruise from Westminster Pier to Greenwich.
From US$ 21.68
Glide by some of London’s must-see landmarks on a scenic 1-hour sightseeing cruise from Westminster to Greenwich on the River Thames. Step aboard your comfortable cruise boat at Westminster Pier and listen to the entertaining live commentary as you pass sights such as Shakespeare’s Globe, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. Drink in the views from the open or indoor deck, and at Greenwich, step ashore to visit attractions (own expense) such as the Cutty Sark and National Maritime Museum. Upgrade to include a return cruise back to Westminster.
What to Expect
Book your required ticket and on the day, board your comfortable cruise boat at Westminster Pier at leisure. Departures take place every 30 or 40 minutes.

Settle on the open-air or indoor deck as you wish, and then sit back and enjoy the panoramic views of London’s skyline and waterfronts as you cruise eastward to Greenwich.

During your 1-hour journey, keep your camera ready as you sail past a string of top London attractions, including the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe and Tower Bridge. Admire the sights and learn their stories and secrets, as well as the history of the River Thames, via the entertaining live onboard commentary.

On arrival at Greenwich, take the opportunity to explore its many attractions (own expense), perhaps visiting the Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Market or Royal Greenwich Observatory as you wish; all of them within strolling distance of the pier.

If you’ve booked a return ticket, catch a return cruise boat from Greenwich when your sightseeing is done. Again, departures from Greenwich are every 30 or 40 minutes.

A Surprisingly Disappointing Experience from a Disinterested Operator

This was both a confusing and disappointing experience. We booked a guided cruise along the Thames – starting from Westminster and finishing in the beautiful areas of Greenwich Village. Shouldn’t be too hard to pull off, really. A simple boat ride with someone reading interesting...More

Enjoyable River Trip

Spend an hour or so traveling from Embankment to Canary Wharf & as far as Greenwich & back - it was a cold November afternoon so an ideal was to keep warm but still see some sights- pleasant (& slightly amusingly) commentary by the staff...More

A good way to spend an afternoon!

We have been meaning to undertake a London Thames sightseeing tour for a number of years, so on a sunny November day, took the plunge so to speak. We opted for TRS as their boat was in at Westminster Pier and the price was good,...More
