For a really good Family day out why not take a trip up the river Thames from Gravesend to Greenwich where you can have a 2 hour stay, or alternatively remain on board and go further up the river as far as Chelsea, time permitting.
If you go ashore at Greenwich you can visit the National Maritime Museums, the Royal Naval College both well worth a visit If you stay aboard and carry on cruising up the Thames you will see all the many changes that have taken place over the years, both good and bad. You will pass under the QE2 Bridge which is a wondrous sight from the river. For people that travel over the bridge regularly you only really appreciate what a great achievement it is when you see it from the river.
As you travel further upstream you pass; Docklands, Canary Wharf, The City of London and HMS Belfast, ducking under the famous Tower Bridge. At Westminster Bridge you will see the Houses Of Parliament and Big Ben.
This trip has to be one of the simplest ways to explore so much of rich British heritage in a very short space of time. As you journey up the Thames there is a very good and useful commentary so you can be sure not to miss any of the most important landmarks, children will love it.
Disabled people are welcome but the toilets were not suitable for wheelchairsb (atb the time of our visit).
