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.
