A River Cruise in London

Imagine yourself on a boat cruise with your special someone, with your closest friends or with your family. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful moment especially when the cruise includes seeing the most stunning places in the city of London.

London is a culture-rich place to come and see. Almost everybody dreams of coming to London at least once in their lifetime. This prestigious city is a magical place to be with its centuries-old Victorian buildings that truly exude magnificence and elegance.

The best way to see the beauty of this city would be to go on a London boat tour along River Thames where you would get to enjoy these marvelous sites in the most scenic way.

Here are some of the attractions you would see on a London boat tour:

The London Eye

The cruise would usually begin at the pier of this wondrous place at the South Bank of the Thames. The London Eye is probably the most popular tourist attraction in London because not only is it a giant ferris wheel but also because it is a very good way to see all of London. At a soaring height of 443 feet, this structure used to be the world’s tallest ferris wheel.

The Tower of London

Located at the North Bank of River Thames, this white tower officially known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London took around two decades to be built. In a way, you can say that the tower has seen it all because it has served as a prison, a fortress, an arsenal and a home for royalty.

The Big Ben

You would not have been to London if you haven’t seen Big Ben. This famous clock tower has been evident in a number of movies and books. The tower stands at 315 feet and takes 334 steps to climb up to the belfry.

On the year 2012 the tower was named the Elizabeth Tower in honor of the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.


The district is found at the North Bank of the River Thames. Very famous to tourists because the district includes the Palace of Westminster, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Westminster Cathedral and to be surrounded by these architectural wonders is of course an overwhelming experience worth having.

St. Paul’s Cathedral

An iconic landmark in the city of London, probably because it is no doubt an architectural magnificence and also because its dome has been known to be the tallest in London for over 300 years. This cathedral has also been a common subject in movies. The cathedral was once destroyed by the Great Fire making the structure very much succulent in history.

Aside from the sight-seeing experience these boat cruises are also best for special occasions like a romantic anniversary dinner, a birthday party or even a marriage proposal since the ambience is perfect for a romance-filled moment surrounded by stunning scenery.

Also onboard the boat are lunch buffets, dinners and any refreshments that may suit your taste. And some cruises even have live music and live entertainment. Plus, the commentaries are available in multiple languages.

Most of these boat tours offer joint tickets for other London experiences so it is quite a good deal if you come to think of it.
