When considering options for getting from A to B in London, these often involve having to stand too close to somebody on the underground or sitting in hours of seemingly endless traffic, but it doesn’t have to be this way when you have the River Thames on your doorstep.
There are many ways you can incorporate a memorable cruise into your travels in London.
Turn your ceremony to reception transfer into an enjoyable and unique drinks reception that your guests will never forget. There are a range of wonderful floating venues on the River that cater to a wide range of wedding sizes and styles.
Some boats on the Thames can be dressed as an effective presentation space to impress your colleagues or clients, or you can even treat them to a dinner transfer from your office to a riverside restaurant.
Treating someone special
A private transfer to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, or wedding proposal is an ideal gift for a loved one. As well as large boats for groups you could always hire a small, comfortable pleasure boat for two people to enjoy a private picnic and sightseeing cruise.
London’s most popular entertainment venue, the O2, has the O2 North Greenwich Pier right on its doorstep. Avoid queues at the busy underground station after a concert and travel back to central London in true style to carry on your evening.
For more regular use of the River, TfL’s Thames Clipper service is an efficient and far more relaxing way to commute. The boats are spacious and arrive regularly during peak times, offering an extremely laid back alternative to travelling on a cramped train!
There really is no better way to see some of London’s most iconic landmarks than on the Thames. Hopefully this has given you an insight into how you can take full advantage of this wonderful River and see the city at its very best!
