We loved our short river cruise. We loved the comic narration of places along the shore. It was easy to get on and off. Can't believe how dirty the water in the Thames is. They sold soda and snacks on the boat.

We took a boat ride from Tower bridge up to big ben. It was a great and easy way to see the sights on both the sides of the shore and get to know a bit of history about the various places.

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.
