City CruisesIf you fancy a spot of riverside sightseeing an affordable and recommended option is the City Cruise trip that runs regularly between Westminster Pier to Greenwich Pier. A River Red Rover ticket allows you to hop on and off en route at Waterloo Pier and Tower Hill Pier so you can pepper your river journey with some action on dry land. Alternatively, just sit tight and stay on for the whole 2.5 hour round trip which takes in The Houses of Parliament, London Eye, the South Bank, the Globe Theatre, St Paul's, HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Times vary but they run a regular service (every 20-40 mins depending on the day or month). Please click here to book tours with City Cruises.
