Santa Claus has swapped his sleigh for a Clipper this year, but where is he heading? Did he mistake North Greenwich Pier for The North Pole? Or was he drawn to London's biggest chimneys at Battersea Power Station?

Hop on board on 3 and 17 December and meet Santa whilst enjoying London's iconic landmarks along the river.

Santa will be sailing up and down the river between 12-5pm on the sailings below. You can board and disembark Sailing Santa services at any of the piers the service is scheduled to call at.
