Take a cruise from London to the historic maritime suburb of Greenwich

One of my favorite ways to spend an early morning is to take a river cruise on the Thames to the historic royal city of Greenwich.

Sure, you can now get to Greenwich by Tube or DLR, but if you are heading to the most maritime place in all of greater London—home to the Royal Naval College, the National Maritime Museum, the famed clipper ship Cutty Sark, and the Royal Observatory (itself largely devoted to seafaring)—there simply is no better or appropriate way to arrive than by boat.

Cruises from Westminster to Greenwich take about an hour—an hour and a half if you choose one that first overshoots Greenwich in order to swing by the Thames Barrier—with live commentary on board.
