There truly is nothing like London in the summertime… lush green spaces, blue skies and a soft breeze, BLISS! Because London is the place to be, we’ve put together a list of our favourite things to do in the city this summer, whether you’re planning your once in a lifetime trip or you’re a born and bred local.


London is known for its iconic landmarks, and what better way to experience them than from the water? Thames Rockets is a way to see London like never before! Hop on board one of our famous speedboats and gaze at Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, The London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral and many more with a hilarious guide regaling you with the most interesting facts. With your brains full of quirky history, it’s time for an adrenaline rush! We will fly down the river Thames at 35mph, twisting and turning through the waves, blasting the best tunes and creating the best memories.

If the thought of a thrilling afternoon on a Thames Rockets speedboat has whet your appetite, then why not take it to the next level and reach new heights by pairing the experience with the opportunity to climb up the O2! It is the perfect mix of speed and height to satisfy even the biggest dare devil and you’ll feel like an A-Lister as you stand on top of the very building that has hosted world famous celebrities such as Queen, Ed Sheeran and Beyonce.

Join us at Bankside Pier for an all-speed trip on our famous red rocket speedboat and then hop off and meet your very own professional climbing expert who will help you reach the summit of this awe-inspiring experience.

If you cannot get enough of the incredible London landscape (and we can’t blame you!), then you have to hop on the London Eye for unrivalled 360° views of the river and city. Take in the beautiful capital and wave at our red speedboats from above as you spin in one of 32 pods. This package is the perfect chance to see the best of London from two different angles. Be rapt by our side-splitting guides on a Thames Rockets speedboat before you get swept down the river in a hair-flying, scream inducing, blast! Then tick the London Eye off your bucket list as you spin through the clouds, it is the ideal London day out.

Once you have well and truly satisfied the thrill seeker inside of you, it may be time for a more relaxing experience. Some of our favourite quintessentially London sights include Buckingham Palace and museums such as The Natural History Museum and Science Museum. Summer in London also means picnics in some gorgeously green spaces and you cannot go wrong with Hyde Park or Holland Park, you may even spot a fabulous peacock in the latter!


There are many ways to fill your days in a city as incredible as London, but we hope we have given you some inspiration for your next visit!
