You can great some great pics and videos (selfies and sights) but it's worthy waiting until the slower parts!

What to expect at Thames Rockets

All aboard! Seeing the city’s sights doesn’t get much more fun than this

FYI, this isn’t your typical sightseeing boat ride. Thames Rockets have turned the classic river cruise on its head and seriously cranked up the energy.

The result? A proper thriller of an experience that combines spotting over 20 London landmarks with an action-packed Rocket race at speeds of up to 30 knots (that’s 35mph).

Get the lowdown on the sights from the boat’s tour guide. The Thames Rockets lot are notoriously witty (they’re literally comedians) as well as being experts on the city’s history. So, expect a laugh between facts.

If the sound of the 880-horsepower engine isn’t enough to get you going, the medley of classics from the onboard soundsystem is sure to. Remember to hold on though, you’re in for a bumpy ride.
