Description

We are the number #1 'Activity to do in London' on Tripadvisor

Thames Rockets took to the river Thames in 2006 becoming the first ever speedboat tour operator in London. Within a matter of months our first award ‘Small Business of the Year’ was proudly mounted on our now overflowing mantelpiece, quickly followed with the ‘Best New Tourist Attraction: Gold Award’ from VisitLondon. Soon after came Five Stars from the famous Timeout, London magazine.

Before long our customers returned with their friends, and friends of friends. Word soon spread to TripAdvisor and over the next 12 years the five-star reviews flooded in. 2014 saw Thames Rockets crowned #1 Activity in London – all thanks to our valued passengers taking to the internet to shout about our unique brand of off-beat humour and 21st-century sightseeing. It didn’t stop there – in 2016 we entered the Hall of Fame after receiving our 8th consecutive Certificate of Excellence and most recently VisitEngland awarded us 'UK Family Attraction, 2017'... Speedy by name, speedy by nature!

We are always on hand and ready to bring you and your friends, family and colleagues on Rocket experiences through the most famous city on Earth. Revved up and raring to fly, come and see why we are the #1 ‘thing to do’ in London.

We’re going to let you in on a little secret…

When the moon is full and there’s a nip in the air things change…. WE change!!!

Tip-toe down to the London Eye Pier and blow away the cobwebs with a 50 minute spine-tingling blast through the capital! Your ghoulish guide will be on hand to make you howl, and your spooky skipper will whoosh you away on your very own ‘fright flight’. A ‘monster mash-up’ of creepy classics will accompany you as you howl with joy at 35mph around the dark docklands. This is a Halloween to remember…

Fancy dress not mandatory but always encouraged!

I recommend the Thames rocket as a great experience. Our guide, Tom and driver Nick were both brilliant and made the experience that much better. It is a bit bouncy but not enough to unsettle our coffee and pastry we had before hand. We arrived 15 minutes before our ride as advised for our briefing which was to be honest a very short I ate on how their life vests work. Tom (our guide) said it was mostly for people to put on wet weather gear if need be. We visited in August in London’s 2018 heatwave so stood around finishing our coffee and making small talk. The ride was 50 minutes with approximately 15 minutes of speed as advertised. The slower part of the ride was filled with our guide telling us fascinating nonsense about the sights. I mean that in the nicest possible way as you could live without the information but much of it made you go, “oooh, I didn’t know that!” to you partner. I live in London and much of it was news to me. My wife and I really enjoyed the ride and loved the new way of seeing the Thames. We have done a Thames dinner cruise and other boat tours of the Thames before but recommend this above all others if you had to pick one!

Absolutely one of the best tours we ever did. We took the 50 minute "classic" tour, which is a mix of a guided tour from the water and a great speedboat ride on the river Thames. Guide Geoff and Skipper Nick did a great job on board "Red Rocket". Will certainly do one of the other tours when I visit London again. Highest recommendations!!!

We went on the 50 minute tour and based on all the previous reviews I had read I was expecting it to be good. In actual fact it was fantastic and money well spent. The boat tour guide was great and the trip itself was a mixture of sightseeing and high speed thrills, although in no way was this scary. Highly recommended!

One of the best experiences in London. 10.00am 50 minute ride with Stacey and Doug. Exhilarating ride coupled to some interesting historical facts about London history and tales of the riverbank. Stacey had a great sense of humour. I would thoroughly recommend this trip and will definitely be doing it again.

Had a great time on the “Ultimate London Adventure” speed boy tour. Geoff was a top bloke and brilliant tour guide, interacting well with the passengers. Rich was the captain for our boat and appeared to operate it well, but what do I know about boats? Very exciting way to see London, reaching speeds of 60km/h!!! Would definitely recommend, really enjoyed it 10/10!
