Spend An Unforgettable Day On The Thames With City Cruises

This is a sponsored article on behalf of City Cruises.

This time of year, there's no better way to see London than by boat. With City Cruises, you get to see a wealth of A-lister London landmarks from the water — think the London Eye, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament — while catching summer rays, and feeling the breeze in your hair. Even better, there's no chance of ending up stuck in traffic!

Every City Cruises tour features fascinating (and fun) commentary from the captains, so not only do you get to see lashings of iconic London, you'll step off the boat with a treasure trove of fresh trivia in your noggin!

(And by the way, if you're keen to hop on and off along the way, the 24-hour river pass lets you do exactly that.)

Catered to anyone and everyone, City Cruises make for a brilliant family day out, and kids are looked after properly, with colouring sheets and pencils provided for the younger ones. Plus, with the Family River Pass, up to three kids go FREE!

Oh, and if you're worried about the British weather dampening your day out... while you can bask on the upper deck while the sun's out, there's also the opportunity to nip into the indoor salon, and get yourself a cup of tea (or something stronger).

Looking for a wilder ride? Sounds likes the Thamesjet Speedboat experience is for you. This rip-roaring 50-minute round trip from Westminster to Canary Wharf is sightseeing at full throttle. You get to see all the sights you would on any other City Cruise tour... just faster! Again, kids will have have the thrill of their lives, this time thanks to immersive commentary, in which they're signed up on a high-speed MI5 'mission'. Better buckle up — this one's for the thrillseekers!

Check out the range of City Cruises, and book an unforgettable day out on the Thames this summer.
