Board your boat at Westminster Pier and explore the open-air deck or indoor saloon as your cruise heads past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Enjoy a glass of wine and elegant canapés as you glide past the London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Gherkin, the Tower of London and the 1,016-foot (310-meter) Shard.

You may want to purchase a drink from the onboard licensed bar as your tour continues east to Greenwich Pier, passing Canary Wharf and the sights of maritime Greenwich, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Finally, cruise back to Westminster Pier with plenty of time to hit the town or go for dinner.
