Thames River Boats Timetable

Thames River Sightseeing offers two routes enabling you to make the most of your day out in London.

The Blue Route goes from Westminster to Greenwich, calling at St Katharine’s Pier (for the Tower of London and Tower Bridge). In the summer months, the Blue Route also does sightseeing cruises to the Thames Barrier to and from Greenwich Pier. TRS is the only sightseeing cruise company to run Thames Barrier cruises.

The Pink Route is a hop-on hop-off service for people wanting to explore the South Bank. Calling at three additional piers between Westminster and St Katharine’s, you can use it to travel in style – as well as having a well-earned rest – between tourist attractions like the London Eye, the South Bank Centre, the Tate Modern art gallery, the Globe Theatre, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. The return journey from St Katharine’s to Westminster is non-stop.
