What better way to travel round London and do a little sightseeing at the same time? We boarded the clipper at the London eye and stayed on till we reached the 02 Arena at North Greewich. We had a coffee and cake, sat comfortably and enjoyed the views and journey down the River Thames. The staff are friendly and work... More

We bought our tickets in advance on Groupon, slightly cheaper, we bought hop on / off, valid for the whole day, so got to see a lot of London from the river, a completely different perspective from sitting trafic as I often do.

We used the MNBA Thames clipper on 2 of our 3 day trip to London. It was an excellent, efficient and friendly way to get into central London and to 'see' London. We would have used the clipper on the 3rd day but, unfortunately it does not go all the way to Woolwich Arsenal Pier throughout the middle of the... More

I definitely recommend is really good..you can see the all city of London from North Greenwich to Westminster and you can stop and get back on..there's always one every 20minutes..they sell couple things on boat like crisps,sandwiches and beverages alcoholic/non alcoholic..the only thing I think they should put some heat as it can get a bit cold..also they have a...

On arrival was told a boat would be in within 20 minutes. One boat left with empty seats on it after 15 minutes. We were told the next one would be 15 minutes. We waited and waited for nearly 90 minutes (then two came at once) before we got onto the boat. The ride was well worth it. Shame about... More

My daughter really wanted a boat ride, and we joined the clipper at the Tower of London to Westminster. We paid just over £25 for the 3 of us. Other cruises on offer were far more for one person, you don't get the commentary but you do get to see all the sight on that stretch of the river. Such... More

The trip along the river Thames from the O2 was fantastic. A very fast, comfortable and frequent service. Refreshments were readily available on board. The staff were friendly and helpful. We passed many London sites on route to Westminster i.e. Greenwich, the Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, the Shard, the London Eye and Parliament, plus many others... More

I often travel by Thames Clippers. If you are not in a particular hurry, it is a wonderful and relaxing way to travel and to see London's amazing sights at the same time. Much more relaxing than the tube! Night-time journeys are particularly impressive. The vessels have a bar, where you can purchase drinks and snacks. There is also a... More

Run to time, comfy seats, great views. You can use oyster or contactless on these boats. Food and drink available but quite pricey.
