Thames summer river programme

City Cruises will be offering what is essentially a sightseeing service between the four major destination piers on the River Thames (Westminster, London Eye, Tower and Greenwich) daily this summer.

This is not to be confused with Thames Clippers who run what is effectively a water bus service from Embankment to North Greenwich with extensions up river to Milbank and down river to Royal Arsenal Woolwich.  These boats operate every 20mins and are much used by regular commuters.

From 18 April 2011 the frequency of the service will increase with cruises operating every 30mins, offering passengers more choice.  The service will also start earlier and finish later in the day.  The London Showboat, an unforgettable evening of top quality entertainment and superb food will operate from Thursday through to Sunday.  Boarding is at Westminster Pier at 19:15, returning at 23:00. www.thamesclippers.com
