Big Bus Tours makes it easy to explore with Big Benefits - bus tour tickets include a free one-way River Cruise. Make the most of this opportunity to discover London from a place the bus can't go, out on the Thames.

River Cruise

With a Big Bus London tour ticket you can enjoy a boat cruise along the River Thames, operated by our partners, City Cruises.

The river cruise offers a fantastic opportunity to see the city from a different angle, and includes live commentary. Top London attractions lining the Thames include Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, Shakespeare's Globe and the Tate Modern.

Please note: Departure times vary for the river cruise, but tours are approximately every 15 minutes in summertime, and every 30-40 minutes in winter.

The bus will stop at the Tower of London and a guide will escort you to the boat tour, while telling some stories along the way. The boat will travel from Tower Pier to Westminster Pier where you'll hop off to rejoin the bus tour.
