“A day out on the river”
Review of Thames River Boats

Thames River Boats
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Booked to go on the river as my husband always wanted to go on a cruise and this is the nearest I will go. It was a great way of seeing London. We cruised first from Westminster to St Catherine's docks. We had a very informative commentary from one of the crew and gave lots of information about the various buildings down the centuries and how the river used to be. We alighted at St Catherine's and was amazed at the beautiful waterfront here. Several little boutique shops and bars and amazing boats/yachts spent an enjoyable couple of hours here. We then re-boarded the boat to go back up river to the houses of parliament. Would recommend this trip to anyone.

Brilliant informative journey from Westminster Pier to Tower Pier. The guide on our boat was comical,knowledgeable and friendly. Many facts that one doesn't readily know, were at his fingertips. There is a bar on board which was not used by us, even though we were going all the way to Greenwich!

A nice trip during the evening but very cold in december, so get prepared for that. There are few riverboats companies. We bought a hoop on hoop of ticket valid for 48 hours that included a river cruise ticket that was also like a hoop on hoop off thing.
