“A wonderfull way to see London”
Review of Thames River Boats

Thames River Boats
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2014

I chose to take a trip on the Westminster to Hampton Court boat, which lasts about 3 hours; dependent on the tide. This is definitely the best way to see London, and the slow pace allows you to take in the wonderful riverside architecture. The trip is commentated upon by one of the boats crew and his knowledge of the rivers history is next to none. He does this voluntarily so make sure that you give him a large 'tip' when you dis-embark. One thing to watch is that the departure times are directly related to the tides so could vary from what's shown on their website, therefore I would suggest that you phone in advance to check before leaving home.

We spent about 3 hours on this Thames river boat, the view that you get from the boat is so much better than on foot, and at a steady pace without being pushed from pillar to post by crowds of people, extremely good value for money, with very helpful and informative crew this river boat trip is a must for London sight seeing.

A great way to experience some of the east end and end up in Greenwich. Maritime sites, Royal sites, nice pubs, and the river.

We bought tickets for the hop on hop off boat cruise. Our children were free of charge with our paid fare as well the ticket was valid for 24 hours. This was a most amazing way to see the sights and we used it the second day. Highly recommend .
