You cannot ignore the River Thames if you are living in London. It is a part of the very fabric of life in London and has played such an important part in both the history and the development of the city. If you have just moved into your new London rental and want to get out and explore a little, then taking in the sights from a boat cruise on the River Thames is one of the best ways to familiarize yourself with the city itself.
The River Thames is the second longest river in the United Kingdom and the longest in England. It is a source of commerce, industry and of course tourist attractions. Many of the top London tourist attractions can be seen as you travel up or down the River Thames. Can there be anything more exciting than cruising under Tower Bridge and viewing the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London from the water? Being on the water gives you an entirely different perspective of life in London and the great city that grown up along the river.
