We had a pretty good idea that my 30th birthday might be our last sans baby! Therefore wandermust daddy organized a day of treats that you can’t do with a baby – the first being a speedboat down the Thames.
We used Thames Rib Company who I would thoroughly recommend
The trip started at embankment and headed westwards towards the Houses of Parliament. We had a great view of the sun setting over Parliament.
The trip then took us past the London Eye , Tate Modern and The Shard.
The trip was accompanied by a guide who pointed out all the main sights of London. Given the age of our group the guide added some saucy humor to the commentary that went down well.
Heading east, we went past the Tower of London and had a great view of traitors gate. A view that many dreaded and never saw again.
Once we had headed back east out of the city the boat was able to open up and get to high speed hitting waves and causing much delight among our group.
As we headed back towards embankment we got the best view of tower bridge I’ve ever seen. Despite being a Londoner and being there for many years I had never actually seen the bridge open. This was a great birthday treat and a highlight of our trip.
