This month's Totally Thames Festival brings the river to life with a month-long season of river-related events: art, music, open days, family fun, talks, walks and boats galore. We're proud partners of Totally Thames. As part of the festival, we've been running a €˜Totally Thames Blast'. Having stepped aboard our super-shiny €˜Rockets' at St Katharine Pier in the shadow of London's iconic Tower Bridge, our guests have enjoyed hair-raising adventures on the river as we revved up our 615 horsepower engines. The 15-minute trips showed guests how far we've come in 2,000 years. With music pumping from the speakers we've twisted and turned at speeds of 30 knots - that's 35mph! Read more about our Totally Thames Blast here. If you haven't yet had a chance to explore Totally Thames, there are still plenty of opportunities to get on and into the water before the festival ends, from paddle steamers to paddle boarding, cruising on a Tall Ship to wild swimming. Beside the river, there's mudlarking on the foreshore and an open day at Tower Beach. Chances to get active include fishing, kayaking and boat trips at Tidefest. Totally Thames festival balances these with the more sedate pleasures of concerts in riverside churches, special events at Thameside attractions, a late night tryst at Chelsea Physic Garden, special offers at riverside restaurants, and a night of poetry. Visit the Totally Thames website to see how you can get involved in this great celebration on the river, or head to our website to book a Thames experience that's guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping!
