Go with the flow. Kayak Bus is a one-way trip from West London to Greenwich. This is a 100% sight-seeing trip, passing all of London’s top landmarks, such as the Cutty Sark, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, Bankside and the Globe, St Pauls, South Bank, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Lambeth Palace, Mi6 and many others, all from the seat of a kayak.
