Why Go For A Thames Cruise

London is a city that is home to many delights. From the majestic London Eye to the historic Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, there’s a lot to see and do in this beautiful city. Thames river cruises offer one of the best ways to discover London. The river flows through the heart of central London, which happens to be home to some of the memorable landmarks in the city. You not only get to see most of the city’s primary attractions, but you do so at a comfortable pace which allows you to fully immerse yourself into the London experience.

More than just being a convenient way to explore the city, the experience of taking a leisurely cruise through London has a certain charm that’s hard to find in other means of transport. This is a fact many London tourists agree with if the demand for London cruises were to go by. If you’re planning to take the plunge (not literally!), we have put together just the guide for you. Our Thames cruise guide will answer all your questions and help you pick a cruise that suits your preferences! Let’s begin.

Which Cruise Suits Me Best

Sightseeing Cruises

  • Another great thing about sightseeing cruise in London is that you can use this as a general means of transport as well. In fact, a lot of Londoners skip the traffic and the roads and take these cruises to get wherever they need to be.
  • If you have select places you wish to experience during your river cruise, a sightseeing tour is a great way to go about it. There are tons of sightseeing cruises available and you can pick one which goes to the places to wish to see.
  • For most sightseeing cruises, the boats ply within a 30 to 40 minutes frequency. This means that you can never be too late or too early for your cruise experience since the boats are always there.

Culinary Cruises

  • A culinary cruise is great for you if you have some time to spare and want to make a special day out in the water with your loved ones.

Combo Cruises

  • If you’re not sure of how to go about exploring London, a combo cruise is your safest bet. You’ll get to experience the city from your boat and also walk the streets to get a real feel of the ancient architecture that dots the city.
  • There are a lot of combo options you can choose from that might both fit your needs and the time constraints you might be dealing with.
