Boat trips on the River Thames

To truly enjoy sightseeing on the River Thames then sit back and let someone else take the helm! Sit and relax as beautiful scenery glides by on a River Thames boat trip or cruise!

Passenger Boat Trips

Passenger boat operators offer a number of different options including day trips, round trips, stopping or one-way services. As well as the scheduled services, you might enjoy a themed river cruise. Choose from a spot of sightseeing with wildlife watching or party nights and seasonal day trips, to name but a few!

The main cruising season for the non-tidal Thames (outside of London) is April-September but each operator may have sailings and cruises outside of this time including special events so please check availability with the business. A completely different type of boat trip is offered by Thamesjet which can carry up to 12 people for an adrenaline filled ride passing under London’s bridges.
