Thames River Sightseeing (formally Thames River Services) was created when a group of independent party boat owners joined forces to start a sightseeing company. In the daytime, tourists can enjoy sightseeing trips on the river, and in the evening, groups of party-goers can hire boats for parties and corporate events. We have just undergone a major rebrand that has seen the amalgamation of our two services Thames River Services and Circular Cruise, to become the new Thames River Sightseeing brand.
With over 50 years of experience, Thames River Sightseeing is one of the longest-running Westminster to Greenwich riverboat cruises. Being a family-owned company, our dedication to providing the highest-quality experience is unmatched with upscale amenities, a fleet of elegant vessels all featuring inside and outdoor seating and a fully-stocked bar, live and educational commentary in multiple languages, and a team dedicated to ensuring your journey is nothing but smooth sailing. Join our local skippers as you immerse yourself in an incredible journey where you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the skyline, historical sights, and hidden gems. Hop on our vessels and see over 60 iconic landmarks directly from the Thames River. Hop off at any of our stops and craft your own London adventure, and once you are ready, hop back on to continue your exploration. With Thames River Sightseeing, you can avoid the crowded walkways and traffic-filled streets and sit back, relax, and enjoy an authentic way to explore London.
While onboard any of our boats, you can settle back and enjoy the entertaining and sometimes hilarious live commentary from the local crew members or listen to the multilingual audio commentary on your smartphone.
As we operate our services all year round, you can rest assured that our boats have outdoor viewing decks and heated lounges with panoramic windows. Come rain or shine, you can relax and enjoy London’s famous landmarks from a unique perspective.
