Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The original, fastest and most exhilarating sightseeing speedboats on the river Thames today. Thames Rockets set sail in 2006 offering these unique sightseeing adventures to the public for the very first time. More experience, more style and more returning passengers year on year. Slice through London at 30 knots as the Thames is eaten up by 630hp of engine power. Zoom under the capital’s famous bridges and marvel at London’s landmarks from your exclusive vantage point. Our award winning comedian tour guides ensure sparkling highbrow banter as you 'pull G' past the House of Parliament before holding on tight for an exhilarating trip to Canary Wharf and back mission accomplished on this exhilarating Thames speedboat trip. This experience departs hourly from the world famous "London Eye" Pier, 7 days a week, throughout the year. Perfect for birthday celebrations, unique dates, reunions, family outings, groups of friends, staff gatherings, hen & stag do's, corporate entertaining, team building, engagements, school outings and more.Suitable for all ages 1 to 101! Toddlers and grandma alike willl love this speedy experience. This ultimate sightseeing adventure is great whatever the weather, wet weather kit provided for all ages and sizes."Five star" rating from London's Timeout Magazine, awarded a "Gold Tourist Attraction" in first year of sailing.

Brilliant way to see the sights with a twist. Andy and Rory who were on the boat were great, informative in a fun way and added to the experience. Would definitely recommend!

This was our second time on Thames Rockets with some of our other grandchildren and was every big as good as before. Our Captain was Rich and our Guide/Entertainer was Bill who were fantastic between them keeping us on the edge of our seats, informed and amused with Bill's quirky facts about London. Our two granddaughters (13) absolutely loved the experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

We booked this for my daughters 18th and it didnt disappoint. We had Billy and Doug as our crew and the whole experience was such a laugh. I'm not going to lie, I did scream a lot but it was huge fun and would definitely do again.
