The UK saw the hottest July day on record last month, with temperatures hitting 36.7C (98F). The Met Office said the reading had been registered at Heathrow - breaking the previous record set in 2006. All month we helped our visitors keep cool by zooming along the Thames at breakneck speeds; we can't think of a better way to cool down in a heat wave than that! If you missed your chance to enjoy the sun on the Thames, don't fear -you can still book tickets for summer sailings here. August is set to be another scorcher, as a second wave of very hot air is expected to push up from central and southern Europe bringing sweltering heat. Some forecasters have predicted it could beat the all-time record for Britain, when the mercury hit 101F (38.5C) at Brogdale, Kent, on August 10, 2003. Brian Gaze of The Weather Outlook said: €œThe year's hottest temperatures usually occur in late July or early August. As pressure models favour more African hot air over Europe pulsing to the UK, the 101F (38.5C) record could go.€ So you've heard the experts, now it's time to plan some fun in the sun! If you fancy joining us on the Thames for a brilliant experience of the UK heat wave book your ticket here.
