    Approaching the iconic Tower Bridge, London’s most famous landmark, you’ll enjoy an unbeatable view of the HMS Belfast, as well as some quirkier sights. Keep an eye out for Traitor’s Gate, the notorious river entrance to the infamous Tower.

    Continue your cruise under Tower Bridge and too see a variety of weird and wonderful buildings marking the path past the impressive Canary Wharf skyline to Greenwich, where you’ll discover the story of the UK’s world-shaping relationship with the sea.
