London's No.1 Outdoor Activity. 

Originally London RIB Voyages, Thames Rockets took to the river Thames in 2006 becoming the first ever Thames speed boat tour-operator in London. Within a matter of months our first award ‘Small Business of the Year’ was proudly mounted on our now overflowing mantelpiece, quickly followed with the ‘Best New Tourist Attraction: Gold Award’ from VisitLondon. Soon after came Five Stars from the famous Timeout, London magazine.

Before long our customers returned with their friends, and friends of friends and family and colleagues and associates for their ultimate London day out. Word soon spread to TripAdvisor and over the next 12 years the five star reviews flooded in. 2012 saw Thames Rockets crowned #1 Activity in London – all thanks to our valued passengers taking to the internet to shout about our unique brand of off-beat humour and 21st century Thames river cruise. It didn’t stop there, in 2016 we entered the TripAdvisor renowned 'Hall of Fame' after receiving our 8th consecutive Certificate of Excellence, VisitEngland awarded us 'UK Family Attraction, 2017’ and most recently recipient of the 2020 ‘Traveler’s Choice Award’ from TripAdvisor. Speedy by name, speedy by nature!

We are always on hand and ready to bring you and your friends, family and colleagues a trademark Rocket experience through the most famous city on Earth. Revved up and raring to fly, come and see why we are the #1 ‘thing to do’ and consistently topping the ‘what to do in London’ lists.

We’ve always enjoyed our residence at the iconic London Eye. Close at hand to major places to visit in London like Shrek Adventure London and the London Dungeon, you can always catch a ride on board any of our renowned experiences. It’s all there – sightseeing, adrenaline, thrills, spills, speed, smiles and adventure each and every time.

Over 80,000 passengers take to our fleet every year. With numbers like that there really is no need to accept imitations of this truly outstanding attraction. With the best London tour guides, the most talented skippers and the only Rocket boats in town our experience and know-how means you are guaranteed the best service – all with the added personal touch that keeps our lovely passengers returning year after year.

No advertising – simply word of mouth means we believe in our product fully, as do our passengers. 100% of our bookings come from our customers. We really couldn’t do it without them!
