Row, Row, Row your Boat, Gently down the Thames

Between classes, and field trips, and family visits, it’s been an insanely busy few weeks, hence the unintended hiatus.  But, in the midst of all of that, I did get to spend one very relaxing day out on the Thames thanks to LUIP and City Cruises.

It may have been a windy day, but that didn’t stop us from going to the top deck and taking in the amazing views along the river! So of course, we got plenty of pictures 🙂

Thankfully London Bridge was not falling down as we went under it

We got to get down to the level of London’s flood forecasting lions.

‘When the lions drink, London will sink.
When it’s up to their manes, we’ll go down the drains.
When the water is sucked, you can be sure we’re all…in trouble.”

A lovely shot of Big Ben; I have so many pictures of this clock

So I was no where near “holding it”, but we had fun (:

Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast

All in all, it was actually a beautiful day; the wind and the clouds just gave it the full London experience and we had a great time and got to see so many of the landmarks!
Another awesome part is, City Cruises does student discounts that can get you up to 35% off the normal price (plus another 10% off if you get the tickets ahead online!), so you can have a fun trip out for a super affordable price. For example, the tour we did would come down to about £6.24 for the student online ticket, which is pretty cheap, especially in London, and well worth it for all we got to see!
So if you’re looking for a study break this term, why not take a ride out on the Thames?
