River Sightseeing Cruise: Regular departures between 10am-3pm
1 day ticket
What It Is
The London Eye, or Millennium Wheel as it was originally known is an iconic London attraction that will take you on a giant ferris wheel ride to show you the city of London with a birds eye view as you ride 443 feet up into the sky!
The hop-on-hop-off sightseeing cruise has 4 stops which reach all the key riverside attractions including Greenwich and The Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, Westminster with the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben and the London Eye with the Aquarium opposite. The comfortable river boat has open-deck seating as well as indoor saloon seating with panoramic views from the large windows and also has toilets and a cafe onboard so you can be sure of a relaxing time.
Your Experience With London Eye and Thames River Sightseeing Cruise
Collect your ticket from one of the designated piers and then, depending where you are, choose if you want to ride the London Eye first, do the river cruise in its entirety on a 2.5 hour round trip, or make up your own itinerary for the day hopping on and off the boat at each destination to view all the iconic sites such as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The Shard, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and so much more!
With live commentary onboard you'll be learning all about the history of London but in a fun and informative way, you'll be giggling rather than dropping off to sleep! The cruise takes you under so many of London's bridges - You probably won't have realised how many there are or what the story is behind them, the cruise commentary will tell you - You'll have more insider knowledge than a local Londoner by the end of the cruise!
