City Cruises

city cruise city hallAfter the Tower of London, I headed down to Tower Pier (30 second walk) where I presented my London Pass and was given an all day City Cruises ticket! This is a great London Pass bonus as you can use the City Cruise boats like a bus- getting on and off where you want throughout the day. On a warm day it would be lovely to sit on the deck and have a little picnic while going up and down the River Thames. (I'm such a romantic!) But as it was cold and threatening totower bridge rain I decided I’d just go down to Westminster and come straight back. While I waited for the next boat (above in front of City Hall) I took a few photos of Tower Bridge slowly sinking to the right (only kidding, it’s my wonky photography again!) and also HMS Belfast which is directly opposite the landing jetty.

There is a small bar where you can buy all sorts of drinks and snacks and huge panoramic windows to look through. However, being an intrepid explorer I decided to go upstairs to the open air deck so that I could take better (ha ha) photos!

I wasn’t sure what I was looking at some of the time and didn’t want to miss anything so my photos are a little random! Any buildings I can’t name will be put on my Flickr page so that hopefully someone will enlighten me!
