Explore the city by river

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

Amongst the many ways to see London, one popular way of seeing the city is by travelling on a riverboat. By travelling down the River Thames, you’ll have a leisurely ride and be given a chance to take in many of the historic sites that lie either side of the river. This relaxing riverboat tour is one of the most convenient ways to see the city. You’ll be away from the hustle and bustle, and the sights at either side of the river will be so easy to see.

The Thames river buses are also known as the Thames Clippers, and they start near the London Eye and end at Woolwich. Along the way, the boats make a number of stops alongside some of the biggest attractions in London, including the Tate Modern, London Bridge and London Eye. Check it out if you want a value for money and easygoing trip!
