Clippers along the Thames
Forget about the subway, underground or tube as locals call it, and try the riverboats to get around London. Do avoid the overpriced tourist-trap boats and climb aboard the Thames clippers, but skip the sightseeing ones and use the commuters’ for a true local experience. These vessels, used by local commuters for transportation along the riverbank, are a fast and efficient way to move around and enjoy the nice views as a bonus. They stop at major commuter’s hotspots, service is frequent and hubs covered include Tower Hill, London Bridge, Embankment and Waterloo. Remember: many of London`s attractions are along the Thames, familiarize yourself with the river banks and take a map to make the most out of it.
