Sneak on down to our boarding gate under the world famous London Eye in comfort (when the crowds have disappeared!) for a super special ‘after hours’ speedboat experience.

Thames Lates is the most unique of our Thames boats trips, as you wrap up in our snug jackets and settle in on the speedboats that have been named #1 on TripAdvisor by your predecessors. Leave it to us to bring the sunshine back out as the nights draw in…

Grab your nearest and dearest and let us entertain you along the most famous river in the world. Our renowned guides love nothing more than showing you the capital’s river when all other Thames boat trips have gone to bed. Combine the winding of the river and London’s incredibly romantic sights between you and the sunset, and you’ll feel like the most important people in the town. With only the very best hand-picked guides at your service you’ll soon be giggling past the Gherkin and tittering by the Tower.

Thames Rockets are known for their #1 speedboat experiences and Thames boat trips, so strap yourselves in for a trademark dash across the docklands at 35mph! Fly into winter with enough twists and turns to shake the leaves to the ground and stir the bankers into hibernation! Our expert skippers are ready all year round to provide you with thrills and spills, and with our highly regarded soundtrack accompanying your ride you’ll think it’s the beginning of the summer all over again!

Don’t worry – we’ll settle your nerves once the speed is over! As you return through the magical lights of London we’ll ensure you are warmed up with a hot mulled wine to bring you back to earth. Whether you are about to start the night, or settling down for the evening, we’ll send you off ready for whatever is next in store with this Thames boat trip!

Thames Rockets are ready for the night!

Fun, witty guided tour through London and then a roller coaster ride after Tower Bridge. Then cocktails and funky tunes on the way back!

”Cannot recommend enough. Think ‘riverboat tour’ meets ‘floating rollercoaster’.”


You would be an idiot to miss this!
