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.

Craig 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 boat, who both run boats from the same pier. Check out Craig's reviews of the City Cruise and Thames Clipper ships as well.

If you fancy something to get your heart pumping faster, then how about one of London Rib Voyages speed boat tours instead?

 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).
