Quite simply we love what we do, because we do what we love. That’s why we have received numerous ‘Best Tourist Attraction’ awards, 5* from TimeOut, cruised our way through 10 consecutive ‘Certificates of Excellence’ from TripAdvisor earning a place in their esteemed Hall of Fame. Thames Rockets were awarded “Family Friendly Attraction of the Year, 2017” by VisitEngland and most recently winner of the 2020 ‘Traveler’s Choice Award’ by TripAdvisor - and we’re still raring for more!
So it’s time to see what all the fuss is about. Isn’t it time you came aboard and tried the best?
Excellent! So good. Virus, what virus! Social distance all in place and more. Really helpful staff, had such a blast, pardon the pun. Stacey, so funny. Adam, made it very enjoyable and (really sorry) the person who checked us in so helpful and funny.
A birthday experience and today 12 of us have enjoyed their new Bubble Experience. We will be back to enjoy the Break the Barrier experience soon. Well done all for making this a memorable day! So much fun!
"Fantastic family fun"
Amazing family fun from start to finish, great team who all clearly loved their jobs. Our tour guide - Stacey was full of fun facts and enthusiasm for her job . Felt really safe throughout. Social distancing and measures were all fantastic and didn't have an impact on the experience at all. Totally recommend - Just take a hair brush!!!

"Christmas Boat Ride!"
Excellent experience. What a thrill. Staff were friendly and informative. We wanted to do it again as soon as we got off. Will definitely book again!
