A sunset on the Thames

Goukaseishi, London Sunset

Catching the Thames City Clipper is a nice and easy way of getting around London via the use of the Thames, but it’s also pretty expensive.

At first myself and my gf found it a bit confusing as the sign near to the pier mentions one of the river cruises, which might confuse many people as the sign advertised was around £14+ per person.

We made or way down the pier anyway and found out that is had many stops to catch a boat from and also buy tickets from, or when you get on the clipper.

Watching the sunset from the back of one is pretty amazing, and this is what I saw from the city hopper I caught from the South Bank ferry port from near to The London Eye.

On setting off from the pier you can see the unmissable Shard building.

I was able to see a view from a different perspective of my favourite ship in London, the HMS Belfast.

for some reason they had a band playing on the side of HMS Belfast?

as it started to get darker, the sunset/sky looked beautiful from the back of city clipper.

I liked the lighting on the building below (The Greater London Authority City Hall) with the skyline off London in lights on the side.

then viewing the underside of Tower Bridge was a little surreal.

I saw these people in a speedboat, which must of been fun.

and then finished a beautiful evening by getting off at the Canary Wharf pier.
