Thames River, London

4.3
#1 of 14 in Nature in London
The Thames River offers an enjoyable vantage point from which to see the city. Take a boat tour and sit back while the skipper navigates you past famous attractions, like the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London. Join a dinner cruise to eat on the water with views of the city lit at night. The city's public ferry service offers a relatively inexpensive way to experience the river. You can also sign up for a walking tour along the riverbanks, or simply stroll on your own. Make Thames River a part of your London vacation plans using our London itinerary planning app.

  • We headed to Greenwich and there was a lot to see on the way, loved going under all the bridges - there's a few. The river seemed quite clean and there is a little bit of traffic on it too.  more »
