Our guide to River Thames Sightseeing Cruise - River Red Rover Hopper Ticket
Get the best views of London from the top desk of your River Red Rover City Cruise and absorb in the entire City skyline including the Houses of Parliament, the enormous dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, the historic Tower of London in contrast to the modern architecture of the London Eye, Millennium Bridge and Tate Modern.
All these sights and many more are all expertly narrated in a variety of languages by knowledgeable and entertaining guides bringing the history of London to life! There’s no traffic congestion on the River so you simply board at one of the four piers and enjoy the ride at your leisure. Your modern all-weather, wheelchair friendly vessel includes open upper decks and spacious lower saloons with panoramic windows.
Each point-to-point cruise takes around in 70-minutes so you go at your own pace, hopping on and off as many times as you like at any one of the four convenient piers and enjoy a relaxing day exploring, seeing and learning all about this historic City and surrounding areas.
