River Cruises in London

River Cruises in London

Free River Cruise in London
You are entitled to a free River Thames cruise when you book the Original Tour. You can choose from three pick-up points: Westminster, Tower of London and Greenwich Piers. If you plan to stay in a central London hotel, Westminster is probably the most convenient point. You will not be disappointed as most cruises have bars and provide refreshments on board and it is generally a good retreat. If you don't speak English the commentary might be available in several foreign languages.

Jason's Canal Boat Trip
Jason's Canal Boat TripRegent's Canal boat trip is something you might want to experience while in London. Travel on the Regent's Canal in a traditional narrow-boat and a bit different from other cruises. It takes you from Little Venice along the canal and you can enjoy the beautiful views of Regent's Park until you reach the Camden Lock. This is the location of the well-known Camden Town market. You can take a one way trip which is 45 mins, stop over and catch a later boat, or take a straight return which is 1hr 30 mins.
