What is the Thames Clipper?
The Thames Clippers are catamaran riverboats, which are part of London's public transport network. They are an excellent option to travel between destinations, even though they aren't exactly tourist boats.
What does it cost?
A trip on the Thames Clipper can be paid for with an Oyster card. Another option is to buy a family day ticket on the boat, which may be cheaper. Family tickets (2 adults, 2 children) costs £35.60, and you can hop on and hop off as many times as you like throughout the day.
Where can it take you?
The route goes from Woolwich in the east to Embankment, so to the corner of Big Ben in the west, and stops at many important locations. The table below shows a list of the stops from east to west and what destinations are near the pier.
