Highest Fastest! (40 mins + View from the Shard)

 10,343 reviews

Here at Thames Rockets we know a thing or two about style. Sonic speedboats, super skippers and the slickest sound medleys are all part of the trademark Thames Rockets experience.

We are also never one to rest on our laurels. We continually scour London for the most innovative, most memorable and most exciting experiences for our valued guests… and we think we’ve found the perfect package…

Introducing the Highest Fastest experience! Step aboard our 12.5 metre long fibreglass ‘Rockets’ from London Bridge City Pier in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge. We’ll ‘blast off’ at 30 knots like a bullet for a whizzy whistle stop trip through London’s east end. Coo at Canary Wharf, gawp at Greenwich and ogle the O2 as we fly you to the eighth wonder of the world – the mighty Thames Barrier! A medley of memories accompanies your thrill ride through the greatest capital in the world, returning to London Bridge City Pier just in time to turn it up a notch!

You’ll be ready and raring to see London from a whole new perspective – from the very pinnacle of the Shard tower. Towering at 1016 feet the Shard boasts the highest views in Western Europe, giving you an unspoilt panorama of London town. You may even see us zooming by far below…

See London before London sees you, with the Highest Fastest experience. Only from Thames Rockets.
