City Cruises, Tower of London, River Thames, Boat Trips, Sightseeing


City Cruises is the No.1 sightseeing tour on the Thames! Our cruises departing every 30 minutes, every day of the week, all year round, City Cruises gives you the freedom to explore the many sights of the River Thames from four fantastic piers near popular attractions: Westminster, London Eye, Tower of London and Greenwich. It is the most convenient, picturesque way to travel between London landmarks. Make a quick hop between piers with a single ticket, or take in a round tour with a our all day River pass and make the most of our informative and entertaining live commentary. We also operate an hourly circular cruise from Tower – perfect for groups! In addition, you can enjoy lunch, afternoon tea, evening and dinner cruises.
Our fleet of boats are designed to give you the best vantage point of river life. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views either from open air upper deck or comfortable saloon. Our fleet of 17 boats can also be privately chartered. And don’t forget our latest additions – 2 Thames Jet boats, which stop harder and turn faster!
We are providing offers aimed at families (including 2 adults and up to 3 children), as for the River Red Rover, which is an hop-on/hop-off sightseeing, and the Thames Jet.
Tickets can be purchased at any City Cruises pier, online at or call +44 (0)20 77 400 400.
