Did you watch Queen Elizabeth II
joined a flotilla of more than 1000 ships and boats on the River Thames on the 3rd of June on television? It was an important part of the Jubilee Celebrations and a major attraction to the British people and tourists. Around one million spectators lined the banks of the Thames to see the pageant that day in the rain.
Taking a cruise up and down the Thames is always something enjoyable to do and a must for most tourists. Once I took a casual 30-minute cruise on my own and I loved every minute of it. A boat tour is a wonderful way to get some ideas of the history and stories of the popular sightseeing destinations located along the Thames. You can just sit back and relax and listen to the live commentary from an experienced pilot.
Along the Thames, you can see old buildings such as St. Paul's Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. New buildings which have sprung up recently such as the London Eye and the Globe Theatre can also be spotted. When I got to the end of the trip that day, I got a special bonus. I saw a flock of beautiful white swans gliding gracefully on the river.//php print_r($node); ?>
