Thames Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise
Sightsee at your own pace on a hop-off hop-on cruise on the Thames River, a great way to explore London at your leisure. Embark at one of four central London piers located in Westminster, Waterloo, Tower Bridge, and Greenwich, and travel between London’s top attractions with ease. Opt to remain on board for the entire loop, accompanied by live commentary, or hop on and off as many times as you'd like within the 24-hour validity period.
What to Expect
Board your hop-on hop-off boat at one of the four piers located in central London. This day cruise embarks about every 40 minutes from Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier, Tower Pier, and Greenwich Pier for your convenience.

Once embarked, cruise past London landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Royal Observatory, the London Eye, and Shakespeare's Globe while listening to comical commentary from an onboard guide.

Hop off whenever an attraction captures your attention, or opt to remain onboard for the entire loop. This Thames River hop-on hop-off cruise is valid for 24 hours after your first use.
