London Duck ToursIf you've spent a few days in London you've probably spotted the bright yellow London Duck Tours tanks driving around town - they're hard to miss! The amphibious Duck Tours vehicles date back to 1942 and were first used in World War II for the D-Day landings when more than 21,000 were built to take the troops and supplies from ship to shore. There are just five of the tanks, originally known as 'DUKWS', in the Duck fleet, taking visitors around town on the roads and on the river. Departing throughout the day from Chicheley St. Waterloo (behind the London Eye), they drive past famous London landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square, giving a commentary on the history of the city as well as the vehicles. Finally, for the waterborne part of the 75 minute tour, the truck launches into the River Thames from a slipway at Vauxhall. It's great fun and an unusual way to see the sights. Please note: Pre-booking is is necessary for weekend and holiday periods at least 3-5 days in advance.
