London is known to be a city that welcomes boats from all over the world. Ever wondered how to experience one of the most vibrant and busy cities in the world? Why not take a boat tour on the Thames and the cool canal ways dotted about? Let’s check out what’s on offer.
If you’ve been to London before and want to experience something different, or you’re here for the first time and thinking about how to get around, well there’s no way better than on a boat of course! There’s many types of boat trips to choose from like the peace and quiet of canal boating, to high speed rides and types of boats such as hybrid land and water vessels to fun catamarans, the London Boat Scene has it all.
Just like a subway or bus service, City cruises work just like that. Hop on and off between the likes of Westminster, Waterloo and Greenwich. You get to see the sites in a way you’ve never thought of before. The River Red Rover allows you to travel throughout the day for as long as you want for a set price.
The rigid inflatable boat or the RIB is something different. It offers tourists a high speed thrill ride on the Thames of London. Don’t worry you’ll have access to the likes of a waterproof jacket, visors and the all important life jacket. The tour guide will keep you all entertained with stories from celebs and fun facts.
If you’re looking for the added fun, there’s the yearly London Boat Show at ExCel London. The event in January is a must for all boat enthusiasts. Enjoy a variety of boats, boat equipment and much more. London is a city with a lot to offer so why not see it the right way; on a boat this year!
