As Londoners, there are many things we take for granted because they are always there, but I tell you there is always an element excitement when you see London from a different angle, say for a boat. When the folks at Tinggly invited my boyfriend and I for a cruise on the Thames
we jumped at the chance to explore London by boat. A table by the window guarantees uninterrupted views of London’s best London marks, gourmet food and wine glasses refilled without even noticing. How would say no to that?
The cruise starts off at Westminster pier and flows through Central London’s 2,000 year old river, providing commentary of much of London’s weird and wonderful history from years past to present day. These tours would seem like something only tourists are up for but even a Londoner is bound to appreciate a romantic break on the waters, whether its a first date or anniversary that doesn’t involve a plan ride, in addition to learning something new about the city. Taking to the waters is one of my favourite things to do in the city. You can check out my other post on London’s Little Venice
We whiled away the tour passing through, Waterloo Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge and its over-the-river platform, Millennium Bridge with views of St Paul’s and Tate Modern and headed for the beautiful bridge with views of Castle of London, Shard and the many skyscrapers of the financial district before cruising to Greenwich. The weather on the day was not great but such is life in London, but fine dining, stunning backdrop to many of the city’s tourist attractions and relaxed environment you immediately forget about London’s lack of sunshine.
The tours run a couple of times a drive with a variety of offerings. Tingglyfind the most inspiring experiences around the world and let you share them as gifts for you and loved ones. Head to Tinggly
