Experience the river like never before with a speedy, 21st century twist!
Join Thames Rockets on an adventure where they’ll show you how far we’ve come in 2000 years. With music pumping from the speakers, you will twist and turn at speeds of 30 knots – that’s 35mph. Step aboard our lightning quick ‘Rockets’ at St Katharine Pier, in the shadow of Tower Bridge. Say cheerio to the past as you whizz ahead of the other boats and feel the wind in your hair as the Rockets' 630 horsepower engines rev up!
