Glide Along Historic Paths: 5 of the Best Cruises to Take Down the Thames
Tate to Tate Boat
The Tate to Tate tour is perfect for arts and culture lovers in London. You can travel directly from the Tate Britain Museum at Millbank Pier to the Tate Modern Museum at Bankside Pier on the RB2 Tate to Tate service. This special ferry runs every half an hour and members of the Tate get a 25% discount.
This is a great way to get from one gallery to the other, so that you don’t have to go through the long tube or bus journey. You’ll get to see many of the most popular London landmarks along the way. Plus, the boat is designed by Damien Hirst and is a unique piece of art in itself.

Hop-On Hop-Off River Cruise
One of the main advantages of a Hop-On Hop-Off Cruise is that it allows you to explore the city at your own pace. This cruise will let you get off and on the boat whenever you like, for a full 24 hours. So, if you see something you like as you cruise along, you can get off at the next stop and take some time to explore it.
This is a great option if you want to be able to have some more freedom as you explore the city. Just make sure you take a look at the attractions beforehand, to see if they are all places you are interested in stopping at.
