Speedboat Experience!

Ever noticed that everyone is looking for that one special, unique, stand-out activity in London? The proud owners of an experience they can take home and tell anyone and everyone about? Of all the places to visit in London, the one that went above and beyond all expectation… 

Going above and beyond underpins everything we do here at Thames Rockets. Whether we are part of your birthday celebrations, your family London day out, your work do or even your stag party – our passengers return time after time to enjoy everything speed boat London sightseeing has to offer, all with that little extra sprinkling of Rocket magic as we blast off into the high speed zone. 

The best London tour guides, the most experienced skippers and the most cutting edge Thames speedboats are just a part of why we’re #1, but don’t take our word for it - just check out our TripAdvisor reviews to see what our valued customers say about their experience with us!

Thames Rockets – London

With quick witted London tour guides and super skilled skippers guiding you every step of the way through the capital, you can find that special London highlight with a Thames river cruise on Thames Rockets. Just check out our TripAdvisor page with over 10,000 fantastic reviews – a direct result of our valued passengers raving about their time with us online!

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, 2020 saw us receive the ‘Traveler’s Choice Award’ by TripAdvisor and in 2024 we were named 'European Adventure Tours & Activities Award Winner' by Arival - and we’re still raring for more!
