A popular river cruise service ferrying passengers from Kent to London has announced more trips.
London river bus provider, Uber Boat by Thames Clippers, will be running two additional services for Gravesend and Tilbury residents later this month.
During October half-term, on Saturday 23 and Tuesday 26, the cruise service will depart from the estuary towns and travel up the Thames towards the capital.
On both dates, the boat will depart from Gravesend Pier at 9.45am and from Tilbury Pier at 10am.
From Tilbury, the boat will take just 40 minutes to reach Greenwich Peninsula or 60 minutes to London Bridge.
Along the way customers will sail past many of the city's iconic sights including The Thames Barrier, The O2, The Old Royal Naval College Greenwich, Canary Wharf and under Tower Bridge.
Its return service will depart from London Bridge City Pier at 5.30pm on both dates.
The launch of additional services follows the success of the firm's sell-out special sailings in the summer holidays.
Tickets can be bought for a single journey, into central London from Tilbury or Gravesend, or a return journey.
For just a few pounds more customers can purchase an all day ticket to enjoy unlimited use of its services for the day and travel pier-to-pier across London.
