London is a destination on so many people’s 🪣 bucket lists and with very good reason. It’s one of those rare capital cities that manages to be; charming, fascinating, historical and modern all at once.

No matter your interests, the sights and sounds of London town draw people in year after year. Rain or sunshine, the appeal of the {British Capital}, is arguably connected to the waterway that helped build the empire: the River Thames.

Not only is the {River Thames} the longest river system in the United Kingdom, it’s been central to trade and transport in the region since; Roman times.

The ancient significance of the river is only magnified in the 21st century, and still a major draw for those planning a trip to London. Whether as a first-time visitor, or someone returning to explore even more of this great city, you will certainly wind up spending a lot of time around the Thames.

This is why discovering London by 🚤 yacht is such a {Must Do}, for anyone visiting the city, especially for the first time. Nearly every major landmark in the city is located directly on the Thames, or within a short walk of its banks.

Furthermore and unlike many cities, when you spend a full day out on the River Thames sailing from destination to destination, you can also unwind and truly soak up every moment.

It’s incredibly rare while traveling, to feel completely relaxed while in transit, but it’s almost as if London was made to be discovered from the water. Read on for just a few ideas for a; morning, afternoon and evening itinerary shared by ⛵ sailing experts at London Yacht Hire.

So, ‘pip pip’, London is calling!

Your Yacht Day Guide – London Along The River Thames

London England Vacations
Even with its infamously fickle ☔ weather and its northern latitude, London rarely gets bitterly cold. It’s also known to get properly, albeit not consistently, hot in the summer months.

With a raincoat (or a mac if you’re picking up the local vernacular) and good shoes plus clothes that suit you for a day of sightseeing, you’ll be totally comfortable for a full day of 🌅 dawn ‘til late wandering!

Here are some ideas for planning out the three key parts of your day.

London is rightly famous for its bountiful and splendid 💐 gardens, that you can easily access from a wharf or quay. Nearly all the gardens will have their own special history, and are usually community spaces as well.

In the cool of the morning and as the city is waking up, you can sail between gardens before relishing a mid-morning cup of tea. From here, it’s essential to visit the {Westminster} area, for a huge number of unmissable sights including;

✔ Big Ben
✔ The Palace of Westminster
✔ Buckingham Palace
✔ Kensington Palace
✔ Westminster Abbey
✔ Westminster Bridge

Midday & Afternoon

Borough Market

Sail further east from Westminster and stop along the Southwark area, for more history. Pop into the celebrated foodie paradise {Borough Market}, and collect a smorgasbord of delights to enjoy back on the yacht.

This market was established in 1756 and is steeped in the history of London, both past and present. Back on the yacht with food in hand, sail on and stop in at some of the city’s best museums.

From {Cutty Sark} in Maritime Greenwich to the {Tower of London}, you have easy access to an infinite number of Must-See spots.

As the day closes in, make sure you’ve selected an unforgettable location for sunset. Fortunately, you’ve got so many exquisite vantage points, you can easily access from the Thames.

Our top picks are the;

Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, the Thames Barrier or at Millennium Bridge.

There’s just as much to see when the 🌃 stars come out including a show at the; {West End}, seeing the city from the {London Eye}, indulging on a gastronomic walking tour, taking in a game at {Wembley} or a concert at the {O2}.

Even though a full day is unlikely to be enough, you’ll still have experienced so much with the freedom of a yacht excursion, sailing in the tradition of this seafaring nation.
