On Saturday 29th July 2017, the London and South East Support Group will hold river boat trip from London Westminster to Greenwich.

If you are visiting London that day, why not come along and join us for an informal and leisurely cruise along the River Thames. As well as for ETer’s, the cruise is also suitable for families. We will depart Westminster Pier with City Cruises at 12 midday sailing up to Greenwich. Arriving approx 1.20pm there will be ample free time to wander around or visit historical attractions before heading back.   The area is home to the Meridian Line, Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory, the National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College including the fabulous Painted Hall, London’s cable car, Greenwich Market, Greenwich Park and The O2 arena.

Some of you may like to plan a whole day or weekend in London or possibly make your own way back from Greenwich at your own time. So I recommend  people book their own tickets to suit their plans. City Cruises offer various deals that include a 24hr hop on hop off river cruise pass and for example entrance to “Cutty Sark”. Or you may even like to include the London Eye or a show. Click here for City Cruises offers. Other deals may be available elsewhere online.

Cruise only tickets can be bought in advance, £16.75 return (adult). However for anyone with a Freedom Pass you can purchase on the day at Westminster Pier for a 50% discount. Not sure if Oyster cards entitle a discount. It is important to remember that if purchasing on the day at the pier there are generally long queues at the booking office, If doing so, its advised to get ticket earlier, maybe have a coffee somewhere before returning to board.

For those arriving early we will meet at St Stephen’s Tavern 10.45am for coffee before heading to Westminster Pier.  Time TBA.

If you are interested in our river trip or have any questions please contact Jackie Farrell at for further information and to add your name to the update list. We would need to know by Friday 28th July who is joining us along with contact details should there be any last minute changes.

If you have any questions please contact Jackie on

We forward to meeting you on the day.
