Thames Rockets

We have just recently celebrated Bradley’s 14th birthday, we celebrated his birthday in a different way this year, to celebrate we headed off to London. Bradley is a little thrill-seeker and really enjoys his fun and adventures so we took him on a surprise trip to London to experience his fastest, funniest and craziest trip to-date with Thames Rockets.

We took Bradley on The Ultimate London Adventure, This is a speed boat down the iconic River Thames sight-seeing from a different view with a BIG difference. We went with Bradley sight-seeing (teen style) by speed-boat, he got to travel at a speed of 35 MPH up the Thames, in Bradley’s words “James Bond style”.

Bradley enjoyed a 50 minute fun-filled and adrenaline-filled trip. Before you step onto the boat you are given a life jacket and a waterproof coat to wear (coat is optional), you are given a safety briefing and then allowed to take your seat for the thrilling experience. The whole experience was fun-filled from start to finish.

Thames Rockets are situated at boarding gate one of the Millennium Pier!

Whilst on our travels we got to see some amazing views of London attractions such as:

  • Big Ben
  • The London Eye
  • The Shard
  • The Gherkin
  • HMS Belfast
  • London Bridge
  • Somerset House
  • Tate Modern
  • Tower Bridge
  • Shakespeare’s Globe

Once we got past Tower bridge the throttle was then opened, due to there being speed restrictions on the Thames before the bridge. We all had an amazing time speeding through Canary Wharf listening to a medley of feel-good tunes. Bradley really enjoyed waving bye to the boats left bobbing on the Thames as we go speeding on past. The staff was all very friendly and very knowledgeable on the history of London, Bradley enjoyed learning some facts from the very friendly guide on our way back.

Here is our video of the thrilling experience.

  1. Well this certainly beats my usual style of travel on The Thames – by snails pace ferry bus! Said transport is also rather smelly – deisel fumes. I think the speedboat option is much more ‘the thing’! ;). Tx

  2. The most daring thing I have done is swim in the great barrier reef with sharks – they were babies though!

  3. The most daring this i have done, was giving up everything and going travelling!

  4. I climbed a glacier in New Zealand but i also ran a mountain marathon in Switzerland when I was pregnant

  5. Oh wow, that sounds amazing! I’d love that myself and my teenage daughter would definitely enjoy something so exciting, it would really make a change from the usual birthday stuff.

  6. This sounds so amazing!! I wish I lived closer (I live in Ireland) so I could go to this! Loved the way you described your experiencex

  7. I have never been on this personally though I have friends that have. They absolutely loved it and would definitely go again

  8. Looks like an amazing experience! Maybe we will try this when Monkey is a bit older. I walked on fire – not sure if that’s thrilling or just scary!! X

  9. We went on our 1st Family Adventure Holiday this year and we tried all sorts of experiences including Abseiling and ZipWire it was fab x

  10. This looks so much fun. I have never visited London but if I ever did, I would love to have a tour via the Thames, I bet it was a great way to see the city x

  11. This looks like such a fantastic experience. I definitely would love to do this especially when the children are older x

  12. This looks like so much fun! We visited London two summers ago & went on a ferry. We saw the rib go by & it looked amazing! It’s so fast & exciting & so much to see too!

  13. It’s really up there for the thrill seekers and yup, very James Bond style. I’d love to do it if I could muster up the courage.

  14. I climbed Mt Ishizuchi in Japan and used the chains to climb one section. It was a bit terrifying when I didn’t have much of a foothold and realized I was relying on my upper body strength to make it up.
