Thames Clippers are a better way to see the sights of London as you travel down the Thames. They have modern comfy seats, alcohol served onboard so can grab a glass of something before getting to the O2, great views from either side of the boat and even though I travelled during the winter it was nice and cosy onboard. The only down side is that the cruise was too fast and I would have liked it to go a little slower to take in the view for a little longer.
A great way to see London! Cruising down the Thames was lovely and of course there is an amazing view. It is warm and comfortable inside and there is a little seating area outside where you can take some pictures of the sights! It took 30 minutes to travel from Westminster to Greenwich, I would definitely use MBNA Thames Clippers again and would recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing way to take in the sights of London.
Great night! Started off with a fast pace cruise on the clipper and then off we went to have a night full music and laughter. Time out once again put on a great night! Roy was a great host!
Great way to get around London, so much more relaxing than cramming on to the tube and you have an amazing view while you travel in comfort.
Last night I attended the Time Out Card event hosted by Thames Clippers and The Brooklyn Bowl. From start to finish the accent was on fun ! Thames Clippers proved to be the most amazing way to see London by night as well as travel from Westminster to Greenwich in just 30 minutes. Once at The O2 we headed into The Brooklyn Bowl where a band names The Old Dirty Brassteads and the place jumping. What a good night - I took the last clipper back to London,and loved the stops at intermediate piers. A great way to travel.
