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.

We have been operating our 2-Hour Sunday Evening Cruise for over 30 years, it’s London’s oldest evening cruise & departs from Greenwich Pier (by the Cutty Sark) every Sunday from May – September. The cruise travels upriver from the Royal Borough of Greenwich, passing Docklands & underneath Tower Bridge before cruising through the City of London & City of Westminster. We travel as far as time & tide allow before turning & cruising back to Greenwich.
