Art float your boat? (Excuse us while we chuckle to ourselves for twenty minutes.) With the Thamesclipper Tate To Tate service ferrying museum-goers along the might River Thames between Pimlico and Bankside, you no longer have to decide between modern or classical art. Keep up to speed on the cutting edge (with David Hockney, Marlene Dumas, and the Surrealists) and stroll through stalwarts like Turner and Bacon. And at fifteen minutes, the journey itself will help you get economical with your sightseeing: You'll take in Victoria Embankment, the London Eye, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament. Expect to pay £12.60 for an adult return and £6.30 for children, and be sure to book at least 24 hours in advance.
London, SW1P 4RG
- Sightseeing: "Be sure to check what's going on in the Tate Modern Turbine Hall, where big, sometimes mysterious exhibitions are installed on a semi-seasonal basis."
- Best for Sightseeing Because: Culture vultures are rarely given such a literal opportunity to set sail.
