Returns to original departure point
Select the day you wish to take both tours when you book. Then, on the day, collect your tickets and make your own way to both Madame Tussauds and the cruise departure jetty.

Madame Tussauds London:
Show your prebooked entrance ticket and head inside Madame Tussauds to explore independently. This world-famous attraction showcases more than 300 life-size wax figures from across the stage, screen, politics, culture, history and sport. Wander through the themed zones including Film, Party and Bollywood, and rub shoulders with the British royals, movie stars and historical figures. 

Come face to face with characters such as William Shakespeare and Vincent Van Gogh; meet world leaders such as David Cameron; mingle with A-listers such as Kim Kardashian and David Beckham; and have your photo taken with the likes of George Clooney and Benedict Cumberbatch — perfect souvenirs to show off after your visit!

Thames River Sightseeing Cruise:Travel independently to the departure jetty on the Thames. Then, step onto your comfortable sightseeing boat and settle on the upper, open deck or in the lower saloon ready for your cruise.

Have your camera ready to capture the sights as your boat glides along this historical river. Snap photos of some of London’s best-known sights, such as the London Eye, Big Ben and Tower of London; and learn about their history via the informative commentary from the onboard guide. Along the way, enjoy light refreshments (own expense) from the café and full onboard bar.

Cruises depart every 40 minutes from Westminster Pier, Waterloo Pier (near the London Eye), Tower Pier and Greenwich Pier (near the Cutty Sark). With your ticket, feel free to hop on and off at any of the piers as and when you wish through the day. The shortest trip between piers lasts approximately 20-30 minutes, while a full round-trip takes around 2.5 hours.

Itinerary

The journey through history begins at Westminster Pier, in the shadow of Big Ben's tower and just a few steps away from Westminster Abbey, where kings and queens have been crowned for almost 1,000 years. This is also the pier closest to the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms off Whitehall, the center of national government, and the Banqueting House, the last remaining building from the old Palace of Whitehall.

Across the river, County Hall, once the headquarters of the London County Council and then the Greater London Council, no longer echoes to the cries of councilors. Down below, the London Aquarium reveals the secrets of the deep while, above, visitors and business people relax in the comfort of the Marriott Hotel.

A few yards downstream see the Millennium Wheel, better known as the London Eye. In a 25 minute ride it offers spectacular views across London and far beyond.

Through the Jubilee and Hungerford foot bridges and Charing Cross railway bridge, the Royal Festival Hall recalls the post-war days when the river carried some 6million people to celebrate the Festival of Britain at this very site.

Beyond Waterloo Bridge comes Somerset House, the grand building on the north bank that was once the home of various government departments and is now a vibrant arts, heritage and entertainment center.

Beyond Blackfriars, look up the steps on the north bank for a view of St. Paul's Cathedral as you pass beneath the new Millennium Footbridge, which provides a pedestrian link with Bankside, part of the South Bank regeneration development. Among the attractions in this area are the Tate Modern art gallery and Sam Wannamaker's re-creation of Shakespeare's Globe theatre, the first building with a thatched roof to have been built in London since the great fire of 1666.

The South Bank here is the heart of historic Southwark, famed for its riverside pubs and the smallest of the capital's three cathedrals. Through London Bridge a thrilling vista unfolds: the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and the retired battle-cruiser HMS Belfast.

On into Docklands: historic Wapping and Limehouse to the north, Bermondsey and Rotherhithe to the south. Many of the old docks have disappeared while those that remain now play host to yachtsmen, weekend sailors and narrowboats.

And to the historic Greenwich, the home of time itself. The Naval College and Seamen's Hospital have taken on a new role as the main campus of Greenwich University and Trinity College of Music.

The National Maritime Museum, with its new Neptune Court and galleries, offers a fascinating and entertaining visit for all the family. These, together with the historic clipper ship Cutty Sark, the Old Royal Observatory, Queen's House, Fan Museum, traditional covered market and many more attractions form the World Heritage Site of Greenwich.

It does not say anywhere in the booking details that you are required to go on the Thames cruise before Madame Tussauds in order to get your tickets for both activities. We went to Madame Tussauds first, where they retained our voucher and we had to endure huge delays and a great deal of frustration before we were able to convince the Operators that we had already paid for the activity and that our voucher had been retained at Madame Tussauds!

Yes thank you. Really enjoyed Madam Tussauds, but unfortunately the guy at the desk took our tickets and we were unable to take the trip on the Thames. Partly our fault as well I know but we just didn't think about it. Looking forward to other offers etc. Pat

Boat trip well worthwhile, shame about the weather! A little confusion as to how to redeem the vouchers at both activities, but all OK. Madame Tussauds was somewhat overcrowded, we thought that they should limit the amount of people in at any one time. But it was a Saturday & the weather was wet! Boat trip crew very funny & looked after us well, even wiping down the outside seats for the brave & hardy amongst us. Good value for money doing both attractions together.
