Attraction Information

Indulge a need for speed with Thames Rockets: a turbocharged boat ride along the iconic River Thames. You’ll quite literally have to hold onto your hats as once you set sail, there’s no turning back!

This is the original sightseeing Thames experience and offers a view of the capital like no other, with plenty of history thrown in. Over 50 minutes you’ll spot world-famous landmarks, beginning at London Eye Pier. Catch a glimpse of Big Ben as it disappears into the distance, dash through the docklands or grab onto your shipmates as the engines rev up to speeds of 35mph under Tower Bridge. As the team say, ‘Think you know London? Think again!’

The tours have been specially designed to combine fact and fun, and the award-winning guides have been handpicked from London’s stand-up and acting circuits. They assure that you’ll be laughing and learning all the way, while experienced skippers keep everything secure. Plus for added thrills and spills there’s an onboard sound system pumping out classic tunes as you travel.
