Tower of London Plus River Cruise

Combine a trip to that famous castle the Tower of London with a river cruise leaving from a nearby pier.

Red-jacketed Beefeater guards will welcome you to this 1000 year old castle.

Built as a palace by William the Conqueror, the Tower spookily became a prison and place of torture which many entered through the Traitors’ Gate. Like many others, Queen Anne Boleyn, wife of Henry VIII, was beheaded here.  

Nowadays it’s a much nicer place and a visit wouldn't be complete without seeing the amazing Crown Jewels including the Imperial State Crown and the Sceptre and Orb.

Your ticket includes:

  • Hop-on Hop-off all day sightseeing cruise ticket
  • Entrance to the Tower of London

Tower of London & River Cruise

    VERY EFFICIENT CLEAN EASY ACCESS

    ★★★★

    Cruise was great, no issues but last return time to Greenwich was 1530


    03 Nov 2018

    Despite ordering and paying online we were still obliged to queue twice! Once to convert online voucher into paper tickets for the boat (!) and secondly to swap paper vouchers (from first queue) into real Tower of London tickets! Defeats the whole purpose of online ordering. Really in today’s world?

    Not friendly service, charged twice.

    Problemlos gebucht, schnell und einfach


    11 Sep 2018

    ★★★★

    C'est assez pratique d'avoir un combo même si la queue au guichet pour avoir la contremarque (sur présentation du bon internet que j'avais réservé) peut être un peu longue. C'est une excellente façon de se rendre à la Tour de Londres. Attention, une fois arrivé à la Tour, se présenter de nouveau au guichet pour échanger la contremarque pour des billets. Je pense qu'il aurait été possible de faire un peu plus simple.

    ★★★

    +Kedves és bőséges a személyzet - Internetes jegy vásárlás ellenére még 2x sorbanállás a helyszínen a vocher beváltására. (a hajónál is és a tower-nél is) Miért van erre szükség??? Éppen ezért veszem meg és nyomtatom ki a jegyet előre interneten. Nem jó ez így!!!

    On time, comfortable and exciting for children.


    20 Aug 2018

    Funny commentary and good local knowledge of interesting things surrounding the Thames.


    10 Aug 2018

    Although booking in advance didn't really save us much time (you still have to queue to exchange your tickets for attractions), for sheer convenience it was great and very informative.

    We had a perfect summers day for the cruise to Greenwich and the commentary given by a crew member was much appreciated.

    Cruise was great. Crew member did commentary on way down river which was so much better than the recorded version that was played on return trip. Highly recommended


    18 Jun 2018

    ★★★★★

    Bundling the tickets saved us a lot of money.


    15 Jun 2018

    ★★★

    It seems like we spent as much time docking and positioning the boat as actually traveling down the river Thames. Good views for sure during the short journey but overall it was just meh and I can't say it's recommended.


    06 Jun 2018

    ★★★★

    Took guests from India - they enjoyed the day and the commentary on the way


  • 02 Jun 2018

    ★★★★★

    Boats well signed and left on time. The return boat was better as it was a live commentary with a very entertaining guy - good comic. Have heard him before on a previous trip to London and he’s excellent. The audio recording wasn’t nearly so good!!
