Day Two in London: Westminster Cruise on River Thames

12:00




Let me quickly recall the rest of London's adventures before I get overwhelmed with the amount of incoming photos (Actually, I already am). So on day two, it wasn't long before we got lazy and succumbed to the temptation of taking a cruise to see London's iconic landmarks instead of walking to them. It turned out to be an incredibly good decision because it would be very time-consuming to travel to each of it and yet not being able to spend much time there anyway. The cruise also provided a much needed breather for our tired feet, so yes, it was a worthy 6.50 pounds spent (per adult).

We were there at St Katherine's Pier where the cruise starts. It is actually a legit form of transport from St Katherine's to the Big Ben, but of course most of the passengers are tourists who want to catch glimpses of most of London's landmarks without too much effort.



There are timings for the cruise to set off, so if you don't want to be disappointed or wait for too long, do check up the timings first. We showed up at the pier without much prior research; luckily, we didn't have to wait too long. There was just enough time for some photo-taking before we board the cruise.


There were overcast clouds during the cruise - but it didn't rain despite the threatening gloominess. It was quite windy and comfortable on the ride, and we got to see the London Eye, The Shard, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the various bridges (Waterloo, Blackfriars, Southwark, London Bridge, Tower Bridge). It was pretty cool. It was also my first time being on a cruise ship like this, so I was pretty excited and fascinated by how relaxing it is. I should do this more often...

 

Surprisingly, a selfie with the London Eye is very easy to take!
