The Waverley paddle steamer has been filmed steaming under Tower Bridge in spectacular footage on the Thames - and Londonders are lapping up the opportunity to go for a cruise on the famous ship.

Two weeks of sailings are taking place in the English capital until October 8 - with several days already fully booked.

The famous paddle steamer, which is now 76 years old, recently completed a sucessful season on the Clyde coast before heading down south.

Watch the footage below:
