Most relaxed journey I've ever had in London

We had landed at City at morning rush and had about 5 hours to get to Heathrow. We avoided the crowds by getting the DLR in the "wrong" direction to Woolwich Arsenal. A relaxed 10... read more

This is without any doubt the best way to travel into London if your visiting​ a place close to one of its piers. I travelled from the O2 (North Greenwich) to the Tower of London (Tower pier). Its spacious relaxing not overcrowded. They even have a bar on-board. It has Nice comfortable chairs and you get to see parts of... More

The very best way to travel around central London. Buy an oyster card otherwise it is going to get expensive but this is a great way to see the sights along the Thames and get where you are going. Much better than the tourist boats. There is however a reduced service at weekends.

We used the Clipper to get from Greenwich north to the O2, it was a bargain, stress free, you could easily get a seat and fast! Only 8 minutes! Contactless payment is fabulous, as no worrying about queuing for tickets, just remember to tap in and out at the end of your journey. The staff on board and at the... More

Went to front desk thought she had tapped my oyster card in turned out she was checking for available funds. Annoyed as i asked the staff as i was boarding and got waved on as if it was OK. Turned out it wasn't and a £6.50 oyster fare became a £9 fare when my card got checked. Feel somewhat scammed... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback. In common with all other Oyster readers run by TFL, you have to touch out when alighting so that the system charges you the correct fare. We are sorry the bar was not open during your journey. Best Wishes, Raj More

Excellent boat trip from Westminster Pier (can walk it from Embankment underground or maybe Westminster) all the way up the Thames past Canary Wharf and onwards to the Thames Flood Barrier almost ...but not quite got to North Greenwich Pier, where I then disembarked and went on the cable car over the Thames. The trip is comfortable and takes maybe... More

Great way to get around without the fancy tourist guide stuff. Simply jump on and jump off when you want to as there are lots of different stops along the way. It is literally a water taxi. Use your oyster card to tap in and out, but make sure it's topped up before you are at the dockside. Boats are... More

When in London we always make sure we have day roamer ticket, so down to Greenwich with a stop here or there. It's either a great water bus or trip in its own right. Good value
