Watch the sun go down over London from an exhilarating high-speed Thames Rockets boat! Sweep down the world-famous river that divides the capital taking in the stunning London skyline, and don’t forget a camera! Friendly, knowledgeable guides are just waiting to share all the fun stories, kooky facts and fascinating gossip they’ve picked up through years of runs down the river, and this rigid inflatable hits speeds of up to 35mph so hold on tight! All this is set to a fabulous summer soundtrack put together by a top Hackney DJ, and to really set the mood as the lights of central London go on and the sky darkens, every passenger will enjoy a delicious Southern Fairy cocktail, made by the London Cocktail Club.
