Thames Cruise to the Tower Bridge
Part of: UK and Western Europe
One of the most enjoyable experiences we had in London was an afternoon cruise in the sunshine on the Thames River, from the Embankment Pier to the Tower Bridge. It wasn't a fancy cruise, just a river taxi that is marketed as an extension of the London Underground. But it was really fun and an efficient way to get us to the Tower, which was a long way down the river from our hotel.
The main reason we went to the Tower Bridge is that one of my photos of Oxford is featured in a temporary exhibition up there! That is quite an honor, and it was pretty great to be able to see it in person since it's only running this summer. In fact, we weren't totally sure the exhibition would still be there, so it made us extra happy to find that it was!
