City Cruises Sightseeing

View the sights along the Thames in a very relaxed way, from the Thames on a hop-on hop-off boat from City Cruises. An expert guide gives live commentary about what you see and don’t see.

The boats sail to and from three destinations: Westminster, London Eye and Greenwich Pier. Westminster Pier and London Eye Pier are diagonally opposite each other within walking distance.

You pass all famous sights such as: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London Eye, SEA Life London, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, Cutty Sark, Old Royal Naval College, the Queen’s House, the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

You sail from pier to pier to view the sights up close. Afterwards you go back to the pier and take a seat on the boat, have a drink and take a rest. More relaxed sightseeing than this is almost impossible.

We have taken the route from Greenwich to Westminster several times, always a success. Read more about this in our post Maritime Greenwich – Thames Sightseeing Tour.
