Joined the cruise boat at Westminster Pier the boarding went smoothly. The crew were friendly and the commentary was amusing but informative. Really enjoyed the trip downriver to Greenwich. We had a walk around and pie & mash at Goddards before returning to Westminster

What people are saying about Westminster Pier
Everything was great. We arrived about 15 minutes before the scheduled time and there was plenty of space in the upper deck. The boat was clean. The captain was very informative and funny when talking about whatever was there. I highly recommend this tour.
Was a fabulous day out my 7 year old nephew said it was the best day ever so there's a compliment, the commentary was really good and staff and crew helpful and friendly. Would definitely do this again.
Amazing views, the staff were very knowledgeable for people who by self admission wasn't professional or anything
Really enjoyed this experience. Most informative and interesting commentary given by the boats crew.
Really enjoyed this well worth the money. Full day out including the river cruise thanks
