Best way to get to the River Thames from Holborn

The hotel we will be staying in is near the Holborn stop on the tube. What would be the best way to get to the River to do the City Cuises?

From the title of your thread, my first thought was to say walk down Kingsway and around the Aldwych to Waterloo Bridge or to Temple, where you would be greeted by the sight of the river.

But if you're looking to take a cruise from Embankment Pier then take the number 91 bus: https:/…holborn-310314.pdf Alight at its terminus at Charing Cross stop K https:/…charing-cross.pdf and walk down Villiers Street to the Pier.

If you would rather start at Westminster Pier then from the Aldwych take the number 11 towards Fulham Broadway. Alight at Westminster and walk to Westminster Pier.

If we chose to walk to the River per your directions to see the River, about how far do you think the walk will be?

From Holborn station to Waterloo Bridge or Temple at a moderate pace, the walk might take 15 minutes. From Holborn to Embankment Pier, perhaps 25 minutes.
