If you’re looking for a way to see the sights in London that barely costs more than the price of a tube ticket, then try looking at London a different way – from the River.
In past centuries, the river Thames was the main route for transport in the city and many major landmarks, both old and new face the Thames. We took the regular Thames Clipper service, which is designed for commuters, rather than for tourists, along the Thames from Embankment pier to Greenwich.
I’d highly recommend the service which is slick and comfortable, with outdoor and indoor seating. If you want a shorter tour, then take the service from Embankment to Tower Bridge and then either come back the same way, or get off and explore, then return by tube. If you’re looking for a great day trip, then continue to Greenwich, where there are many historic sights to see and most of them are free too.
