World Travel Market 2019

World Travel Market 2019

Once again, Circular Cruise and our sister company Thames River Services will be at World Travel Market (WTM), an exhibition for travel trade professionals.

We love going to WTM as we always meet so many interesting people from all over the world. In fact, it’s become such a popular event with the travel trade that it was extended from two to three days in 2016, which means we get to talk to even more travel colleagues!

As one of the world’s largest travel trade shows, it’s become the ‘must visit’ event for outbound and inbound tourism professionals, attracting exhibitors and visitors from all parts of the travel industry. And with a predicted 50,000 participants, we’re expecting to be shaking a lot of hands!

Why are Thames river cruises so popular with tourists?

Whether they’re from a few miles away or different continents, visitors to London love the river. This makes a sightseeing cruise one of the ‘must do’ activities. Tourists can see many of the world’s most famous landmarks on a Circular Cruise or TRS boat trip, such as Tower Bridge, the Globe Theatre, the Shard, the Tower of London, the Thames Barrier, the Houses of Parliament, Cutty Sark and many more, so one of our cruises provides a restful yet still eventful part of any London tour.

Our pilots are well known for providing entertaining and informative commentaries as part of each cruise, but we also have recorded commentary available in different languages, accessible via a smartphone. Audio commentary is given in Spanish, French, Italian, German and Mandarin, as well as in English.

Year-round service

Thames River Services and Circular Cruise operate sightseeing tours all year round (except Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day). All our boats have heated lounges with panoramic windows, so it doesn’t matter what the weather’s doing, our passengers will always be cosy and dry.

We organise a lot of group tours every year, welcoming visitors from around the globe. So, whether you’re an international tour operator or organise UK coach tours, please feel free to visit us on Stand UKI100 and say hello. If you’d like to pre-arrange a meeting with us at WTM, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Get in touch with Maciek Imiolczyk at
