Absolutely appalled how rude the man at Hampton court was today to us , boat left early without 6 passengers even though it was over 40 minutes late to Richmond, when I asked for refund he no and was extremely rude ....never use this boat...More
Boat clean and tidy and left on time. So grateful for the roof in this hot weather. Well worth paying the little bit extra to sail beyond Greenwich to the Thames barrier passing the Canary Wharf and onto the o2. Loved the crew and an...More
What made the trip was the commentary from a member of the staff who, not only gave out information, but gave out useful facts that related to the places, especially the Thames Barrier. These were most useful at the time but will remain useful in...More
Relaxing return trip from Westminster to Greenwich seeing many wonderful historic buildings and landmarks added to by some humorous commentary. Cruise boat clean and tidy with a decent cafe / bar on board, definitely a good way to spend a couple of hours sightseeing.
We booked the return boat trip to the Thames barrier and the boat operators kindly agreed that we could move some seats into the shade on the top floor to get away from the sun and heat.

If you are heading to Kew or Greenwich for the day give some serious thought to taking one of the Thames River Service boats.. the boat to Kew takes slightly less than an hour to get there (a little longer to return) and comes with...More
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
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
