Now the sun’s out, there’s no excuse for not taking part in one of London’s best summer traditions – catching a movie in the great outdoors!
Time Out’s very own Movies on the River leads the pack when it comes to alfresco film-viewing. Our one-off movie boat leaves Tower Pier at 8pm from Tuesday to Saturday for a sunset cruise, before docking in view of Tower Bridge and screening a movie in the open air on the boat’s top deck. Even better, there’s a bar on board to keep you refreshed all night long.
All aboard London’s only floating cinema on the Thames!
