Join us this September for our 'Totally Thames Blast!'
Totally Thames returns this September with an outstanding programme of events along the River Thames.
The annual celebration of the river runs throughout the month of September. It gives Londoners and visitors the opportunity to take part in a programme of arts, culture, heritage and active events ranging from music concerts and exhibitions to speedboat blasts!
Celebrate Totally Thames this year by taking to the river with a speedy, 21st century twist! We’ve teamed up with Totally Thames 2018 to offer you a unique speed boat experience exclusively for the festival.
We're not ones to miss out on any Thames-themed fun, so to kick off the Totally Thames excitement we'll be running one of our most exciting experiences - the ‘Totally Thames Blast'! You and your mighty crew will board from our departure point at St Katharine Pier, situated in the shadow of the iconic Tower Bridge. You will embark immediately into the High-Speed Zone for a 15-minute blast on the River Thames that will take your breath away! With pumping music and our skipper’s hair-raising manoeuvres, experience the biggest adrenaline rush on the river yet!
Along with our partners we’re incredibly proud to once again be offering an adventure where you can learn about the greatest river in the world through a series of events that are happening along almost 50 miles of the Thames.
“An incredible celebration, and with something for everyone, it will give all Londoners the opportunity to explore the terrific Thames.”
Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
3 Fun Facts about the Thames!
To celebrate this years celebration of the river we have come up with three of our favourite facts about the liquid highway for you to use at your next pub quiz or to simply impress your friends with:
- There are over 200 bridges that cross the river. The first was built in London by the Romans almost 2000 years ago, close to the spot where London Bridge is now.
- In 1252 King Henry III kept a polar bear in the Tower of London Menagerie (London’s first zoo). The polar bear was allowed to swim and hunt for fish in the River Thames!
- Westminster Bridge is painted the same shade of green as the benches in the House of Commons Chamber.
