Christmas has Uber Boat by Thames Clippers feeling extra Santa-mental as they are giving families the chance to set sail with Santa Claus through the capital. Meet the jolly fella himself and enjoy the sparkly lights adorning London’s iconic landmarks along the river. No booking necessary, the Santa meet and greets are included in the price of a boat journey. A round of Santa-plause, if you please.
Hop on board selected sailings on 3 and 17 December, at any pier between Battersea Power Station and North Greenwich piers, to experience a seasonal sailing like no other. Whether travelling between Christmassy activities or simply taking to the river to enjoy the festive sights, join Santa from just £4.80 per adult and £2.40 per child, children aged four and under travel free.
