A return cruise from Westminster Pier to Greenwich.
USD 21.94
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.

Great morning river cruise on TRS.

It was a gorgeous morning in London and I thought perfect for this. I've toured London many times but haven't cruised down the Thames in 30 years. Tube to Westminster and the pier is just across the street from the station. TRS gives a 30%...More

Well worth the £18 ticket

We chose the hop on hop off ticket so that we could disembark at St Katherine's Dock for Tower Bridge, but due to time constraints remained on board all the way to Greenwich. It takes an hour each way with boats leaving Westminter at 20...More
