London Eye River Cruise

The London Eye River Cruise is a 40-minute circular sightseeing tour of the River Thames with live commentary. It includes many of London’s most famous landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, HMS Belfast, and the Tower of London.

London Eye River Cruise Review

The London Eye River Cruise is a popular addition for visitors to the London Eye. While on the London Eye you don’t have any comments, but you can spend time admiring the views. On this cruise, you have live commentary to help you discover the historical significance of each landmark as you pass, including many of the bridges that span the river. The comment is both factual and entertaining.

Everyone who takes this river cruise will learn something new about one of the attractions that pass by. And of course you can ask a real person questions, so don’t be shy. (Multilingual audio guides are also available).

Another important point to note is the fact that this cruise takes you back to the same location at County Hall, so you are still on the South Bank for many evening dining options. Just walk to the Southbank Center or Gabriel’s Wharf and the OXO Tower for options for all budgets.

The London Eye River Cruise allows you to have a riverside view of the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe Theater, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.


  • Take in many of the great views of London in a short space of time.
  • It takes you back to County Hall on the South Bank so that you stay in central London.
  • It works all year round, regardless of the weather.
  • Children under the age of four are free
  • Multilingual audio guides are available.
