On arrival was told a boat would be in within 20 minutes. One boat left with empty seats on it after 15 minutes. We were told the next one would be 15 minutes. We waited and waited for nearly 90 minutes (then two came at once) before we got onto the boat. The ride was well worth it. Shame about... More

The trip along the river Thames from the O2 was fantastic. A very fast, comfortable and frequent service. Refreshments were readily available on board. The staff were friendly and helpful. We passed many London sites on route to Westminster i.e. Greenwich, the Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Shard, the London Eye and Parliament, plus many others... More

I often travel by Thames Clippers. If you are not in a particular hurry, it is a wonderful and relaxing way to travel and to see London's amazing sights at the same time. Much more relaxing than the tube! Night-time journeys are particularly impressive. The vessels have a bar, where you can purchase drinks and snacks. There is also a... More

Run to time, comfy seats, great views. You can use oyster or contactless on these boats. Food and drink available but quite pricey.

Just used these boats for a whole weekend and I doubt we will be using the tube again any time soon, you see so much traveling this way. There are many piers to get off and on and you can use your contactless payment card as you would your Oyster card so no need to get tickets. The boats are... More

After a busy day around London and ending at the O2 we decided a river trip back to the hotel would be different to the tube. It was worth it and a different view of London.

Went on the Thames Clipper recently with a friend after a visit to the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. The boat is spacious and comfortable with amazing views of the river and the buildings along its banks. From the river you get a different perspective, fantastic views, also there is no traffic, and it is like being in a totally different... More

Went from Greenwich to London Bridge using Oyster card. It was easy boarding smooth journey comfortable and warm aboard. Handy drop offs both sides of Thames . Cost £6.50 for the trip but was worth it as it was useful and enjoyable to see all the sights on the Thames. Seem like plenty of boats.
