Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

The London Thames River Bus experience is a rather scenic, exciting and relaxing adventure on the mighty Thames. Escape the crowded tubes, buses clogged in traffic and enjoy a journey on the fastest fleet of catamarans on the river. With incredible sights all around including St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Eye, and Big Ben, this is not only the quickest way to get around, but also the most scenic. Not only is the London Thames River Bus fleet the fastest, it is also the most frequently operated boat on the river. With departures every 20 minutes from key central piers, even your waiting time is reduced.

Your Experience

Cruising the Thames lets you experience central London from a different perspective. With dramatic views, fresh breeze and quick transfers, this experience is ideal, whether you’re a tourist or a local looking to beat the traffic.

Just head to the pier you have selected between Battersea and Canary Wharf, and get on any of the London Thames River Bus fleet. After that, it’s just smooth sailing. Sit back and relax as you’re transported from one pier of your choice to another through some of the most scenic views in all of the city. With panoramic views of the city’s top attractions including Houses of Parliament, Westminster Bridge, London Eye, Oxo Building, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and more, you’re sure to remember the views from this cruise.

You will also have the option of adding on tickets to the Emirates Air Line Discovery Experience, which includes a 360 Degree tour, in-flight discovery film and souvenir in-flight guide, as well as entry to the Emirates Aviation Experience located by the North Greenwich terminal so you can admire London from the sky as well as the water! The fully accessible cable car river crossing has been crucial in transforming the two terminals from which you can board, Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks, into thriving parts of the city, both culturally and industrially. The remarkable cable car trips take just 10 minutes from one end to the other, with cars arriving every 30 seconds. Enhance your experience here even more by going after 7 PM to enjoy Extended Night Flights with music and videos to set the mood as you watch London come to life at night!
