See the sights from the air and from the water — that's why we like this combined activity. It all happens by the River Thames where the world's largest and most famous Ferris wheel is located on the south bank, next to the Sea Life Aquarium and just across from the historic city of Westminster, where Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are found.
Your cruise boat departs from Waterloo Pier, also known as London Eye Pier. From that name you probably already have a pretty good idea where the pier is located — right in front of the Eye! Since so many of London's historic and modern attractions are located in the centre, you view a lot in one cruise along the river.
The way this combo package works is that you are provided with a one-day pass to the London Eye and River Thames sightseeing tours at a money-saving price. Those two activities combined are a splendid way to begin your visit to London.
If it's possible, we recommend taking the cruise first, noting the sights as you pass by. Then, when you're on your flight (that's what they call a ride on the London Eye!) you can spot the same sights from above and see how they fit into a birds-eye map of London.
This was a great value! The views on the boat and on the London Eye were just amazing! We had a great time riding the boat up and down the Thames River. The boat staff were very helpful and courteous and the narration was a great bonus, so much to see and learn. Would absolutely do it again if I get a chance to go back to London. Definitely fun for the whole family. My 9-year-old enjoyed both just as much as we did."
