Full description
Experience the sights of London from multiple perspectives with a combined 1-day River Roamer ticket on the commuter boats of the Thames Clippers and a return ticket for the Emirates Air Line cable car.

Cruise up and down the River Thames at leisure aboard the panoramic clipper boats, and see the attractions of London from the deck. Escape the crowded tubes and buses to enjoy a journey on the fastest fleet of catamarans on the river. The boats depart every 20 minutes from a number of different locations, including Westminster Pier, Embankment Pier, Greenwich Pier and North Greenwich Pier.

Hop off to explore monuments such as St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, the Cutty Sark and the Houses of Parliament. It is the most perfect way to get through the center of the city, with unbeatable views as a bonus. Your ticket allows you to hop on and off at any pier in the central and eastern zones.

Great experience

Enjoyed this activity greatly and would recommend. Worth knowing that you do need to print the voucher and redeem at the Westminster Pier point otherwise you won’t be able to do the activity. I managed to leave printed vouchers in hotel room but some kind man on another stall printed it off for me for a quid as they could not do this at the MBNA point.

Shambolic start.

On-line voucher has to be changed for ticket, this is not clearly stated on printed voucher which simply says 'show to member of staff'. Eventually redirected to MBNA office at Westminster Pier which did not open until 12.30pm. It took about 10 minutes for the operator to sort out his till and log-on to the system. There was a further delay of 20 minutes with a deal of confusion requiring a phone call to the office before our tickets were dispensed. Not a great start to the day! There was a further delay of 30 minutes before we were able to board a boat; apparently a boat had been taken out of service. Despite the initial problems we enjoyed our trip to Greenwich and ride on the airline, that part of the operation is pretty slick, just the ticketing arrangements need sorting out.

Very good, would do it again

It was very good except that it wasn't clear that the printout had to be exchanged for tickets until the ticket inspector became involved. Otherwise it was a brilliant experience. Being able to get on and off the Clipper allowed us to stop at various points of interest as well.
