The river Thames is the largest river flowing through the centre of London and splits the city north and south.
London is a city built around the river ever since the Romans created Londinium. Throughout a significant portion of history, London was home to the world’s biggest and busiest trading port and therefore the river was the city’s beating heart. Today, the river is much less busy and you can enjoy the city on a River Thames Tour and sightsee.
The River Thames Tours, a river cruise in London, allows you to see the city from a new angle as you sail past iconic London locations such as Big Ben, the Tower of London and the City of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard, the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and many more.
A river cruise from Westminster Pier or the London Eye Pier towards the Tower of London and Tower Pier takes approximately 20 minutes.
