Jingle Bell Blast

You'll be carol singing all the way as you fly through yuletide London on your very own, super speedy speedboat spectacular. you wont miss a beat as you hear timeless classics in a special Thames Rockets trademark Christmas medley...made just for you! 

From the minute you set off from The London Eye, our award-winning guides (or shall we say, elves!) will be keeping the banter in check while you feast your eyes on all that London has to offer. 

But once we reach Tower Bridge, hold on tight as we sweep across the docklands at 30knots (35mph!), and whoop with Christmas cheer at the other boats left bobbing behind in your wake.

If you're looking for a REAL Christmas treat, look no further than our Jingle Bell Blast!

Jingle Bell Blast + Meet Santa

He is FINALLY here!

Scream with Christmas cheer as you twist and turn through the Docklands with your nearest and dearest right by your side. Our terrific Thames Rockets Trademark festive medley will have you singing your heart out (if you hear a noise from the back, it's probably santa's elves singing along too!)
