London » City Cruises: River Red Rover Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing

London Thames Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise

For thousands of years the River Thames has served as a vital artery in the physical and cultural development of London. It has bore witness to countless famous events and tumultuous transformations of the cityscape which many notable constructions have not survived. What better a way, therefore, to experience the full breath of London's historical legacy than to sail the waters that run through its heart? Join City Cruises and cast off from four piers located along the central portion of the Thames. Hop-on and off at your leisure for 24 to 48 hours and enjoy either live or pre-recorded audio commentary onboard the river boats.
