Enjoy unrivalled views of London’s top landmarks aboard City Cruises boats, as you experience some of the most varied river tours on the Thames.
Find out fun facts with guided commentary, as you glide past the city skyline and pick up refreshments from the onboard café-bar. Hop between piers with a 24-hour sightseeing pass, choose one-way or return trips, or make special memories with dining and entertainment cruises.
What will I see?
City Cruises’ river boats are designed to give you the best views from the river Thames. Sit back, relax, and take in the sights from the open-air upper deck or the comfortable saloon.
Spot London icons such as the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London. On some routes, you’ll even pass beneath historic Tower Bridge for a unique view. Make sure to follow the entertaining guided commentary to learn more about these landmarks and much more.
You can also see the sights go by as you indulge in one of the various dining cruises, whether a leisurely lunch, an elegant afternoon tea, or a memorable dinner on the river. Come evening, you can also join a range of specialty cruises, including an evening cruise or the spectacular City Cruises Thames Jazz Dinner Cruise.
Look out for themed tours throughout the year, such as Easter, Mother's Day and Christmas.
