If it is summer one can definitely walk around some of the areas too and there is also the tube which provides easy access throughout the capital. But, have you ever thought of exploring the city by boat? That is definitely a great way to see this historic city and what better way to experience it other than through a cruise on the Thames River along which the city was initially formed.

A boat trip along the river would take a traveller under the many bridges, through beautifully crafted archways and provide great views of this majestic city from a completely different angle. Depending on the kind of adventure a tourist would want it to be, it can be a serene boat ride while one enjoys a drink in hand or a thrilling speed boat ride or even a duck tour where one can double it up with a trip on land too.
