The London Eye and Big Ben may be the first sights that come to mind when you think of London, but the true heart of United Kingdom’s capital lies in its waterways; the River Thames. Spawning one of the world’s leading cities, the River Thames brought early trade and lifeblood to old London town, and remains at the heart of Britain today. With the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, iconic Southbank, and more than 100 key bridges at its helms, the River Thames remains a popular draw card for business and leisure. Tourists and locals alike travel far and wide to meander down the river, and it’s easy to see why. A cruise along these murky waters will convert you for life.
