Sightseeing Trips & Tours

At Viscount Cruises we have a wide range of options for sightseeing on the River Thames in London. We operate a daily service with Thames River Services calling at Westminster Pier, St. Katharine Pier (for the Tower of London) & Greenwich Pier (for the Cutty Sark & Royal Museums Greenwich). Between April-October Thames River Services also operate cruises to the Thames Flood Barrier, the 2nd largest movable flood barrier in the world.

We also operate our popular 2-Hour Sunday Evening Cruise from Greenwich Pier. Sunday Evening Cruise operates every Sunday during May, June, July, August & September. Our Sunday Evening Cruise returns at the end of November for four weeks of London Christmas Cruises.

Our fleet of modern & traditional vessels are also available for private charters with a range of bar services & catering options. We can operate private sightseeing cruises from numerous piers on the River Thames including Westminster, Waterloo (London Eye), Tower Pier, Greenwich Pier & Barrier Gardens Pier (near the Thames Barrier Information Centre).

Thames River Services operate regular cruises between Westminster Pier, St. Katharine Pier & Greenwich Pier. Between April-October Thames River Services also operate extra services with five sailings continuing downriver to the Thames Flood Barrier each day.

Sunday Evening Cruise is a traditional 2-hour Thames circular sightseeing cruise departing Greenwich Pier at 19:00. The cruise operates every Sunday during May, June, July, August & September. The cruise will take you from the Royal Borough of Greenwich up-river past some of London’s riverside sights before passing under Tower Bridge to view the Tower of London. The cruise continues through the city travelling as far as time and tide will allow before turning and returning to Greenwich to view the tea clipper Cutty Sark and if time allows, the Old Royal Naval College and the O2.
