Summer is coming - let the good times start now!

As we gradually return to normal and look forward to an amazing summer, why not get ready in style on our Thames Lates experience. See London’s landmarks twinkle at sunset, blast off on a Thames river cruise at high speed then cruise back to the London Eye Pier with a complimentary cocktail in hand!

Leave the kid's at Granny and Grandpa's and let your hair down like you used to! What could possibly be better?!

What can you expect? Here's the Thames Rockets '3 Point Plan' for a perfect summer's evening:

1. 50 minute part-guided - part speed experience along the river Thames taking in all the sights on a London river tour in the summer dusk sunlight.

2. A delicious cocktail served as you pass back under the beautiful Tower Bridge at sunset.

3. A fantastic summer soundtrack, specially crafted exclusively for Thames Lates.
