Had a great time on the boat trip on the Thames. Should have taken the longer ride! The kids both loved it and said it was the highlight of the trip to London.

Hi there, Thames Rockets provide all guests with life jackets, water proof jackets and trousers (if it's raining). Guests might get a light splash or spray from the chop of the river but guests do not get soaked or drenched.
