Discover London from the Thames and visit the Royal Greenwich Observatory!

Set off on a Thames cruise and view London from the river. Take the boat to Westminster Pier, Tower Pier or Greenwich Pier and get on and off as you wish.

During your cruise, you will see many iconic London landmarks like Tower Bridge, the London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral ... Pre-recorded commentary is available on board for you to discover the history of these monuments.

When you arrive in Greenwich, cross the park to get to the Royal Observatory. Built in 1675 for the Astronomer Royal, the Observatory is a space dedicated to learning about the universe and its mysteries.

You will learn which discoveries have revolutionised astronomy, touch a 4.5 billion-year-old meteorite and step off the famous Greenwich Meridian. You'll have one foot in the east and the other in the west!
