Thames River Services
Lonely Planet review for Thames River Services
These cruise boats leave Westminster Pier for Greenwich, stopping at the Tower of London. Every second service continues on from Greenwich to the Thames Barrier (one way adult/child £10.40/5.20, return £12.80/6.40, hourly 11.30am to 3.30pm) but does not land there, passing the O2 along the way. From Westminster it’s a two-hour round trip to Greenwich, three hours to the Thames Barrier; from Greenwich the round trip to the barrier takes one hour. From November to March there’s a reduced service from Westminster to Greenwich, with eight daily departures between 10.40am and 3.20pm.
