    A leisurely trip from Westminster Pier to Greenwich with a couple of stops for dropping off and picking up on the way. There was a live commentary which was interesting and amusing. Great views from the open top deck or through the large windows of the warmer deck below. There were loos on board. Decent value for money especially if you find a discount code. We came back on the Dockland Light Railway which gave us a nice round trip.

    The men doing the commentary on the Westminster to Greenwich boats whilst often funny are also often sexist, anti-culture (same old jokes about art in the Tate Modern) and sometimes hard to understand - always saying they aren't official yet asking for money after they've said the same old things each time.

    My wife, and I, found the trip wonderfully relaxing. The commentary, given by a member of the crew, was both entertaining and informative. Importantly, you are able to hop on, and off, at various interesting places. In particular we enjoyed Greenwich and visiting the Cutty Sark, which is situated 200 metres away from the pier.
