River Thames Sightseeing Cruise and London Eye

If you want to leave the tube to the stressed-out commuters for a more relaxing way of travelling around London, enjoying the sights on a river cruiser along the Thames. Board your city cruiser and head down the river to Greenwich.

The cruise gives you a real insight into the layers of history that have built up along the river, an amazing mixture of old and new, with great views of the Houses of Parliament, Tate Modern, St Paul's and many more London landmarks.

Any time you want, you can hop off the boat at any one of four piers, explore and then hop back on later. You can then make your way to the London Eye where you may have to queue a bit, but it'll certainly be worth it when you climb aboard your (air-conditioned) capsule. The Eye slowly turns, giving you sensational panoramic views across London from 135 metres up. Whether you're new to the capital or a born and bred Londoner, this is a fantastic way to enjoy the sights from two unique perspectives
