Unmatched London Views

London, the city of dreams, is a filmmaker's paradise. Its historic landmarks, modern skyscrapers, and bustling streets offer a diverse range of settings for any production. What sets Thames Rockets apart is its unparalleled view of these sights from the river Thames on an open top red rocket speedboat. Imagine capturing the majestic Tower Bridge opening up against the backdrop of a golden sunset or filming the sleek lines of The Shard as it pierces the London skyline. After years of experience in the filming industry, Thames Rockets are unbeaten when it comes to finding the best London filming locations - not only are we on hand to help every step of the way, the iconic London landmarks are there to give your shots that little extra (and who doesn't love a London landmark from the river!) 

Flexibility in Shooting Angles

One of the biggest challenges in filming is achieving unique and captivating shots. Thames Rockets provides an unconventional perspective by offering a moving platform on the river. This opens up a world of possibilities for creative shots that would be impossible to capture from land.

Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, and our crew are always on hand to help you get the most creative shots in London. If you need to grab some unique filming angles, then what better way to do that then with 360º panoramic views on Londn's skyline from the river?

Thrilling Action Sequences

Filmmaking isn't just about static shots of landmarks; it's also about capturing the essence and energy of a city. Thames Rockets adds an adrenaline-pumping element to your filming experience. Imagine filming a chase scene with the iconic speedboats darting through the river, creating wakes and splashes against the backdrop of London's skyline. These thrilling sequences add dynamism and excitement to any production, making your project stand out. If you have an action-packed filming project, or you're looking to film thrilling chase scenes, or even just speedboat sequences in London, our experienced skippers are always ready to crank up the speed and dart you across the river in style!
