As London faces Tube strike chaos again, the city's most scenic commuting option is busily adding extra morning and evening rush-hour services. During July's Underground walkout, Thames Clipper river buses saw a 72 per cent jump in passenger numbers.

Record numbers of Londoners are already choosing to commute by boat along the capital's 'forgotten highway' from homes alongside the central section of the Thames.
