What better way to go tourist than City Cruises, accessible sightseeing tours offering interesting and informative commentary, tasty refreshments and great iconic sights, all from the comfort of their covered family cruise boats, whatever the weather!
The tour types include the flexible River Red Rover where one may leap on and off at will (once moored that is, during the trip itself it’s rather discouraged!) to explore the other sights of the area.
The Thames Circular Cruise is a 45 minute commentated trip from Tower Pier to Westminster and covers most of the most famous landmarks.
On all boats you’ll find bars serving a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks. You’ll also find that all boats offer full toilet facilities. Their boats are wheelchair accessible and most have disabled toilet facilities too. Please check with a member of the City Cruises team at the pier to learn which type of boat will suit your needs best.
They also offer combination ticket deals with a great many local attractions so it’s worth starting here with your plans and seeing what discounts you can get!

It may be worth checking out City Cruises's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact City Cruises before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
Cruises depart every 30 minutes from Westminster Pier, London Eye Pier, Tower Pier and Greenwich Pier every day of the year except Christmas Day.
The shortest trips last between 20 and 30 minutes, while the full experience takes you on a 3 hour round trip from Westminster to Greenwich and back again.
Prices & Admission
Standard tickets start from £10 single and from £10.40 round trip, with special rates for senior citizens, under 16s and students. Kids currently go free when part of a family ticket, see site through link for details.
