Enjoy a jubilant Jubilee half term with Uber Boat by Thames Clippers

This May half term is set to be one like no other as the whole country will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and enjoying two extra bank holiday dates!

Get to the heart of the action by spending the long weekend – 2nd – 5th June – soaking up London’s delights and jubilee celebrations including community events, special exhibitions, and of course royal engagements. While on board, guests can enjoy refreshments and a bite to eat from the boats’ onboard café bars and sit on the outside back deck.

The best way to travel from one fun packed activity to another is to join Uber Boat by Thames Clippers – London’s River Bus. A River Roamer ticket allows the user to hop on and off the boats an unlimited number of times throughout the day from just £18.90 per adult, or kids travel for free with a Family River Roamer from £37.80 online (for 2 adults, 3 kids aged 5-15 years; kids aged 4 and under travel for free as standard).

Half term and Jubilee weekend highlights including a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral’s new exhibition entitled Jubilee: St Paul’s, the Monarch and the Changing World that explores the history of jubilee celebrations and St Paul’s special connection to these national events.

Guests can hop off at Tower Pier for a ‘royal good time’ at the Tower of London to see the 20 million seeds planted in and around the ancient fort’s moat. This wonderful flower display will be blooming proudly this summer as a monument to 70 years of proud Queenship.

Embankment Pier is the gateway to the heart of Royal London. A short walk takes guests to royal parks, the Mall, and of course Buckingham Palace. On Thursday 2nd June 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses, and 400 musicians will set off on a very special Trooping the Colour parade, joined by Members of the Royal Family on horseback. From the Palace’s famous balcony, The Queen and close family will watch an RAF fly-past.

After stepping off at Greenwich Pier a short walk takes you to the National Maritime Museum. The Museums of Greenwich have enjoyed many visits from Queen Elizabeth over the years, and to celebrate her jubilee they are inviting guests to follow a trail of photographs documenting her visits. Along with other fun activities visitors can enjoy a picnic in the grounds of the historic site dressed in bunting by local residents.
