this is a great area of London. So much of excitement and attractions line this famed river. River cruises provide a great option of viewing the city as do numerous bridges one can walk across to get great views of the river

We went on the River Cruise and it was fun and informative. Our tour guide was engaging and had cheesy jokes that made me laugh :) I think it’s definitely worth finding a cruise. There’s lots of different companies that offer a cruise.

We have walked along the Thames in different parts of London, but the area over by Shakespeare’s Globe was the one that we enjoyed the most.

We walked along the Thames Path from Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf on a Sunday morning. The path sometimes runs right alongside the river and sometimes turns in land to go around a posh block of flats or offices. Most of the river side path...More

thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
