The biggest tour boat operator on the River Thames, City Cruises plc provides tourism and leisure passenger services on the River Thames with more than four million passenger journeys taking place every year on its route through the heart of London between Westminster and the Tower of London, then under Tower Bridge and down river to Greenwich – a journey through 2,000 years of liquid history. Now also operating in Poole & York.
Based at Cherry Garden Pier, a historic location in south-east London that was once a part of London’s huge commercial docks dating back to the 1880’s and part of the setting for many of Whistler’s paintings, City Cruises operate a fleet of 17 passenger boats, along with a small fleet of support vessels and barges.

This 70-minute circular cruise will leisurely meander up and down the River Ouse as you listen to a relaxing blend of swing and jazz background music. Our on board floodlights will illuminate landmarks along the water’s edge for you, as you see the river-scape from a different perspective.
