    What to Expect
    Book your required ticket and on the day, board your comfortable cruise boat at Westminster Pier at leisure. Departures take place every 30 or 40 minutes.

    Settle on the open-air or indoor deck as you wish, and then sit back and enjoy the panoramic views of London’s skyline and waterfronts as you cruise eastward to Greenwich.

    During your journey, keep your camera ready as you sail past a string of top London attractions, including the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe, and Tower Bridge. Admire the sights and learn their stories and secrets, as well as the history of the River Thames, via the entertaining live onboard commentary.

    On arrival at Greenwich, take the opportunity to explore its many attractions (own expense), perhaps visiting the Cutty Sark, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich Market, or Royal Greenwich Observatory as you wish; all of them within strolling distance of the pier.

    If you’ve booked a return ticket, catch a return cruise boat from Greenwich when your sightseeing is done. Again, departures from Greenwich are every 30 or 40 minutes.
