Thames River, London

4.3
#1 of 14 in Nature in London
The Thames River offers an enjoyable vantage point from which to see the city. Take a boat tour and sit back while the skipper navigates you past famous attractions, like the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London. Join a dinner cruise to eat on the water with views of the city lit at night. The city's public ferry service offers a relatively inexpensive way to experience the river. You can also sign up for a walking tour along the riverbanks, or simply stroll on your own. Make Thames River a part of your London vacation plans using our London itinerary planning app.

  • The River itself is like most large channels of water, but it is surrounded by many beautiful buildings and landmarks. We saw it from many different perspectives and enjoyed the time touring.  more »
  • We headed to Greenwich and there was a lot to see on the way, loved going under all the bridges - there's a few. The river seemed quite clean and there is a little bit of traffic on it too.  more »
