Getting on a boat is one of the most exciting ways of seeing the city of London from a completely fresh and exciting perspective. The good news is that there are quite a number of different ways of doing this when you're feeling a little bit adventurous. See different boat trips in London below:

A Hop On and Off City Cruise

There are a number of different cruises where you can hop on and off at the main attractions. This is clearly very popular with tourists but there is a lot to be said for doing it even if you live in London. For a start, you get to see familiar places in a completely different way and enjoy a fun day out. A good example comes with the City Cruises trips covering Westminster, Waterloo, Tower and Greenwich. They also offer dinner, lunch and tea cruises, which are a nice way of treating someone to an unusual treat or of giving yourself a little break.

Another company operating boat trips on the Thames is Bateaux. With this firm you can go on a classy dinner cruise or get lunch or tea. They run scheduled cruises all year round and are also available for private hire. The cruises all feature a live band playing music, while if you want a relaxing Sunday then there is the option of a Sunday jazz cruise worth looking at.

Take a Canal Tour

Of course, you already knew that it is possible to go on a cruise along the Thames but did you know that you could take a canal tour as well? The London Waterbus Company offers cracking trips that use traditional narrow boats. You can travel into London Zoo through Regents Park or go from Little Venice to Camden Lock Market with this company.Travel from Westminster

Another possible boat trip in London comes from the Westminster Passenger Association. They have daily scheduled sailings from Westminster Pier out to Kew, Richmond and Hampton Court. This service runs from April to October and is ideal for a peaceful trip away from the usual cruise routes.
