JOIN US ON A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER DAY IN LONDON (ENGLAND, U.K) AS WE TAKE IN THE WONDERFUL SIGHTS ALONG THE THAMES RIVER ABOARD CITY CRUISES BY HORNBLOWER

 

It was such a lovely sunny FRIDAY in LONDON

and what best way to enjoy the city than take a pleasure cruise 

up and down the THAMES with a 24-hour pass

HOP ON HOP OFF by CITY CRUISES.

   

For this SUMMER AFTERNOON,

we will be cruising from TOWER PIER (as it is next to TOWER OF LONDON), 

then up to WESTMINSTER PIER

a quick stop in LONDON EYE/ WATERLOO PIER on the other bank, 

the all the way down to GREENWICH PIER

  

We highly recommend a 24-hour pass

compared to single trips because sitting in the cool shade

while being driven up and down the THAMES 

is preferable to walking up and down the LONDON thoroughfares

on this hot summer day.

That is a personal preference though lol.

We don’t know what floats your boat but for now,

enjoy this virtual tour with us.

   

The City of London in the background.
Behind those trees is a low-lying white building called CUSTOM HOUSE.
A busy THAMES RIVER on a BEAUTIFUL SUMMER DAY.

We are now crossing the LONDON BRIDGE.
The Old Bridge was sold and bought by the AMERICANS and transported piece by piece to the U.S.
A lovely view from the LONDON BRIDGE

The THAMES at low tide.
HMS BELFAST.
IT IS NOW PERMANENTLY DOCKED IN THE THAMES
AND SERVES AS A SHIP MUSEUM.
THE SHARD LONDON STANDS OUT IN THE LONDON SKYLINE.
IT IS SAID TO BE THE TALLEST STRUCTURE IN EUROPE,
HIGHER THAN THE EIFFEL TOWER IN PARIS, FRANCE.
ONE OF THE SMALLER CRUISE BOATS/ SHIPS OF CITY CRUISES.
These boats are airconditioned below deck.
Alot of people sit at the top deck and enjoy the full experience.
Again, it is a matter of preference.
The SHARD LONDON houses the 5-STAR SHANGRI-LA HOTEL.

LONDON EYE is said to be the most-visited LONDON TOURIST ATTRACTION.
Following it in 2nd place is the TOWER OF LONDON.
LONDON COUNTY HALL
TOWER PIER

THAMESIDE FLATS.
THAMESIDE FLATS / APARTMENTS
This building blends well with the sky and the river.
BUILDINGS in the UK typically need to blend in rather than destroy/interrupt the visual flow.
THE SECOND MOST-VISITED TOURIST ATTRACTION IN LONDON IS THE TOWER OF LONDON.
BEFORE THE EXISTENCE OF THE LONDON EYE, THIS WAS THE MOST VISITED LONDON TOURIST ATTRACTION.
ENTRY TO THE TRAITOR’S GATE.
IT IS NOW ALL SEALED UP.
BEFORE, IT WAS USED TO FERRY INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN CONVICTED OF TREASON.
TWO OF HENRY VIII’S 8 WIVES WERE SAID TO HAVE BEEN FERRIED THROUGH THESE GATES
IN & OUT OF THE TOWER OF LONDON.
THAMESIDE FLATS/ APARTMENTS
OLIVER’S WHARF: TYPICAL OF OLD LONDON BUILDINGS
ST. JOHN’S WHARF, CAPTAIN KIDD
THAMESIDE FLATS / APARTMENTS.
This kind of architecture is typical in of old dockside areas.
You will see similar beautiful buildings in LIVERPOOL MERSEYSIDE.
WE LOVE THE OLD DOCK FEATURES WHICH ADD TO THE HERITAGE OF THE BUILDING.
METROPOLITAN WHARF.
THIS OLD BRICK BUILDING NOW REALLY BLENDS IN
WITH THE MURKY WATERS OF THE THAMES.

APARTMENTS THAT LOOK LIKE THEY HAVE RISEN UP FROM THE MUD OF THE THAMES.
IF BLENDING IN IS WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT,
THIS IS PROBABLY THE WINNER.
