Young, adventurous and carefree, I'm constantly on the look out for fun and different things to do in London and surrounds. For more of what I've been up to, have a look at my blog: lollijack@wordpress.com.

London sightseeing from a cruise boat
This is exactly how you want to see London - from the water. Sit back and feel the rhythm of the Thames whilst enjoying the view of London's iconic sights from a different perspective.

City Cruises is a great option if you only have a short stay in London as it allows you to tick off many of the main London sights at once. Even if you're a local, this is a great way to enjoy being a tourist in your own city. If you have children, it's an exciting school holiday adventure.

Although I haven't been on a City Cruise, Ive been on one of the clippers. It's nice alternative way around the city.

What a wonderful way to see the sights of London. Will definitely put in on my list for the next visit. Looks like the weather was the best too.
