One of the nicest ways to while away an afternoon is sitting on the top deck of a boat, as it takes in the sights along the river. So how about a leisurely trip from Westminster Bridge to Greenwich Pier, on a TRS River Cruise?

The hour-long trip takes you past the London Eye, Cleopatra's Needle, the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern, St. Paul's, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf. You will then pull into Greenwich, right next-door to the famous Cutty Sark clipper ship.

Some of the boats offer a live guide onboard, and a bar service downstairs in case you feel a bit thirsty.

Drummerboy has been on this trip, and it's one of his favourite things to do in London. You have to pick a warm day though, because the wind can really whip up on the river (it can be chilly!). Check out the review on his blog to see what it's really like.

You might like to check out the City Cruise river cruise as well, and the Thames Clipper page, who run boats from the same pier.

Admin – “You should be able to, yes. They stop at the pier just after Tower Bridge. But if you plan to get another boat after you've seen the Tower of London, or Tower Bridge (or whatever), then you should check the timetable to see when the last boat is.They mention this on their FAQs page:.thamesriverservices.co.uk/faq.cfm”

 Guest – “Thanks for your answer. I think in your FAQ entry is not clear you can disembark at Catharine's in the route Westminster-Greenwich, because there is another route Greenwich-St. Catharine's.”

Admin – “We're not the boat company. We're just giving details about their service. That link is to their own website.But we have actually done the Westminster to Greenwich trip ourselves, and it definitely stopped at Tower Bridge (St. Katherine's pier). You can read our review here: .londondrum.com/blog/?b=242”
