We love travelling down the Thames by boat - so much to see - and with a Rover ticket you can get on and off as often as you like. Good value and much nicer than travelling on the tube!

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a

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

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.
