TFL’s London River Services

With the sun shining and the days getting longer there has never been a better time to push the boat out and make the most of London’s greatest highway.

Whether you’re looking for a new and relaxing way to commute to work or a delightful way to spend time with family, friends or loved ones, the River Thames has so much to offer this spring and summer.

Transport for London (TfL) has introduced a range of improvements to river service information focusing on making it easier for Londoners and visitors to make the most of the River Thames.

With real time boat information at many piers, new Tube-style river maps, improved signage to piers and services and Oyster pay as go acceptance on Thames Clipper services, it’s never been easier to set sail and see London from a new perspective.

Giving you a helping hand along the way London River Services has published its updated River Bus and River Tours guides for spring/summer 2011.

Available online, at some central London piers, at London Underground stations and TfL travel information kiosks these provide details of services and activities that stretch from Hampton Court Pier in the west to Woolwich Arsenal Pier in the east.

Andy Griffiths, Head of London River Services, said: ‘The River Thames is fantastic throughout the year but especially beautiful in spring and summer.

‘Whether you decide to enjoy the river for your daily commute this year or just make the most of your leisure time and dance the night away at a riverboat disco party, make sure you have one of our guides with you to help you along the way.’
