Venue says London’s River Bus service is back on the river to help Londoners safely travel through the capital while enjoying the most beautiful views!

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

River Bus services operate daily between Royal Arsenal Woolwich and Battersea Power Station and to Putney weekdays. In April 2013, a new Putney–Blackfriars route was added. A daily commuter service operates every 20 minutes, calling at all major central London piers.

On event nights at the O2, the River Bus Express operates a fast direct shuttle service from the London Eye pier and London Bridge, with optional champagne upgrades.

The Tate service runs every 30 minutes during gallery hours between Tate Britain (Millbank Pier) and Tate Modern and the Globe (Bankside Pier) via the London Eye (Waterloo Pier). Tate members get 25% off travel on this route.

River Roamer tickets are also available, offering unlimited hop-on, hop-off travel between major attractions including the London Eye, the Aquarium, the Globe, HMS Belfast and the Tower of London.


Thames Clippers says
We operate the River Bus, an unusual and authentic way to see London from the river! We have the fastest & most frequent fleet on the Thames with departures every 20 minutes from London key piers. Our services stretch from Putney on the west to Woolwich (Royal Arsenal) on the east and we cater for all, from early morning commuters to a family day out on the river or romantic souls looking to see London by night. We have the best views!

We stop at 23 piers across the capital like Westminster, London Eye, Bankside and Millbank (Tate to Tate), the iconic Battersea Power Station, Tower, Greenwich and North Greenwich to go to The O2 or Icon Outlet.


On board you can find comfortable seats, big windows, climate-controlled cabins and outdoor back decks. Our licensed on board bars offer a large range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, including a Vegan selection.

All of our boats and piers are wheelchair accessible by ramp except for London Bridge City, Wandsworth Riversive and Cadogan piers. There are toilets with accessible facilities on board most of the fleet. Our larger boats also have baby changing tables.


For the best rates use your pay-as-you-go Oyster card, contactless or book online from single to return and joint tickets. You also have the option to buy a hop on hop off ticket for unlimited travel on the river. Kids under 5 travel for free. We also provide a River Bus Express to The O2 on event night with optional bubbly upgrade.
