What better way to explore and get to know the city than to look at it from a different perspective. Enjoy a very different view of London from a cruise boat on the mighty Thames River, at the true heart of the big city.

If there is one thing that London does well, it is their very diverse museums and art galleries! There are plenty to choose from and what is more, they are mostly free to enter, which is great for a cash-strapped student for a few hours on a rainy afternoon.
