A good way to see an overview of some of londons architecture. Great for all ages as they will enjoy the view too (you can sit on deck even with young children, or you can sit inside to avoid the weather).

Tour guide was very informative about buildings on the riverbank. You do get a breeze so bring warm clothes, even on a warm day.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

I believe the scheduled time from Kew to Westminster is just over two hours but that schedule is only an estimate. They may be delayed due to other shipping.

The one way fare from Kew to Westminster was 13 GBP per person. You can buy your tickets at a booth at the Kew stop.

Yes they do but I would pay on the day at the booth at Westminster Station on the river as you can choose a nice day.
