England’s longest river, The popular Thames River leads into the North Sea, and has been significant since prehistoric times. It served as the base for multiple settlements and was of much import to English and Roman Kings, and also during the first and second World Wars.

 

A cruise across this lifeblood of the city, is run at 30 minute intervals from several key points in the city. Enjoy the views as you pass by a number of sightseeing locations like the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, and the Tower Bridge. The night cruises are especially beautiful when these locations are all lit up and brought to life in colour. A visit to London is incomplete without a cruise on the Thames.

Portions are usually large. For breakfast, you can have beans or mashed green peas with toasts. On weekends farmers gather on market sqaures and cook food on the streets. Here you can try Asian or Turkish cruisine, mushroom pies and baked potatoes, Spanish sausages, cottage cheese and even dandelion lemonade. Also, you haven’t truly visited London until you’ve had English tea or a beer at a pub. Many delicious feasts await those who buy tickets to London.
