Loading reviews for Thamesjet


Feel the wind in your hair with Thamesjet’s speedboat tour on the river Thames. This thrilling London experience has you cruising past some of the city’s key sights.

Then, make waves on one of the world’s most iconic rivers during this exciting adventure, as you raise your hands in the air for the heart-racing “fast zone”.

What will I see?

As you ride along the river, tick off some of the city’s top landmarks from your sightseeing list, including the London Eye, Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower) and the Tower of London. Not forgetting some of London’s greatest bridges, including the world-renowned Tower Bridge, as you make your way to the fast zone.

After passing under Tower Bridge, you’ll soon feel the speed increase on this jet boat ride that stops harder and turns tighter than any other boat experience on the river.

You’re in good hands as your experienced skipper puts the military grade boat through its paces. So, hold on tight for the most exciting ride of your life!

A group of people, dressed in blue waterproof clothing, hold onto the Thamesjet RIB boat as it speeds through water in the Thames.
