This photograph was taken on a speedboat ride along the River Thames. Speed boat rides are a great way of exploring and learning about London and can be booked for around £25 along the South Bank close to the London Eye. Trips are educational and you can even book a tour guide who is a comedian, which certainly makes the ride even more fun. The boat can go extremely fast so this ride is strictly for thrill seekers.
If you are lucky enough you might even catch a glimpse of a tall ship going under the bridge like in this photograph. On the other hand, if speed boats are not your cup of tea then a walk along the River Thames is a must in order to see some amazing views like this.
Speed boat rides can be booked through London RIB Voyages, who also offer a range of cruises along the River Thames. Other options such as dinner or lunch on a cruise boat whilst looking at Londons sites and iconic buildings can be booked for the less adventurous. This is also perfect for a special occasion such as a birthday, mothers day or a hen party.
