Why walk through London when you can sail along it? At Horrible Histories Live Onboard! Terrible Thames, you’ll take a river cruise along London’s most famous river. Equal parts informative tour and wild entertainment, Terrible Thames is created by award-winning theatre producers Birmingham Stage Company and Woods’ Silver Fleet, a family-run company of Thames Watermen since 1866.

The experience’s combination of theatre practitioners and storied watermen makes this tour one of London’s most unique: there’s not a second of boredom on this engaging cruise where you’ll see the city’s most iconic sights and hear about its famed royals, from King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn to Jack the Ripper and Captain Kidd.
