Boat to the Tower of London This Morning!!

Help,

I've been trying to figure out how to get to the Tower of London via boat. I am at a hotel near Leister Square station right now. I meant to look this up last night but forgot, and now heading out in about 30 minutes and keep seeing things online but it doesn't say exactly how to get there from here.

Thanks anyone!

Head south down Charing Cross Road to Trafalgar Square, then down Whitehall (pass Downing St) to Westminster, then left around the corner (Big Ben opposite), passing Westminster tube station and carry on for another minute where you come to Westminster Bridge. There's boat services down to your left. I forget which one stops off at Tower Bridge but most likely they all do.

Also, I think there's an additional stop from Westminster, stopping at Embankment, which you could reach from Trafalgar Sq (heading down Villiers St, which is south-easterly) but I think it's better starting at Westminster Bridge.

Ah, I see only City Cruises stops off directly at the Tower.

The other 2 (Thames, Crown) stop off a little down river at St Katharine's Dock.

City Cruises is the slower of the boats (but still good - especially on such a lovely day).

One of the other boat companies is Thames Clippers.
