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

    A great price for what we purchased. I loved being able to use the boat to get from the Tower of London over to Greenwich - a place we would not have gone otherwise without the boat option.

    Good combo-product although you have to collect your tower tickets from the official tower box office. It was all fine though

    The teller at the Tower Pier should have told us that we neede to go to a different booth to obtain Tower of London tickets. Instead, we lost time retrieving the tickets upon our return from Greenwhich.

    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?
