With over 50 years of experience, Thames River Sightseeing is one of the longest running Westminster to Greenwich river boat cruises. All our crew members are experienced boatmen, some with family connections to the River Thames going back generations.
TRS (formally Thames River Services) was created when a group of independent party boat owners joined forces to start a sightseeing company. In the daytime, tourists can enjoy sightseeing trips on the river, and in the evening groups of party-goers can hire boats for parties and corporate events.
We have just undergone a major rebrand that has seen the amalgamation of our two services Thames River Services and Circular Cruise, to become the new Thames River Sightseeing brand.
With our choice of four departure points, you can explore London the way you want to. Take time to sightsee many of London’s best tourist attractions from the river from the safety of our open top boats which operate come rain or shine.
TRS has been awarded the ‘We’re Good to Go‘ industry safety standard by Visit England to help you explore London with confidence.
The mark has been given to businesses that have adapted their day-to-day operations in line with Government and Public Health Guidelines. These measures include contactless ticketing and payment, hand sanitising and washing facilities, clear signage and social distancing. It also includes the use of face coverings, regular cleaning and staff training.
While you’re onboard any of our boats, you can settle back and enjoy the entertaining and sometimes hilarious live commentary from the crew members, or opt to listen to the multilingual audio commentary on your smartphone.
As we operate our services all year round, you can rest assured that our boats have outdoor viewing decks as well as heated lounges with panoramic windows. Come rain, come shine, you will be able to relax and watch the world go by in comfort.
