About Thames Lates

Make your way to the world famous London Eye Pier on a balmy summer evening for a super-speedy special ‘after hours’ experience, departing at 7pm and 8pm. Climb aboard our #1 speedboats and cool off as we jet downstream with the wind in your hair. Summer nights are made for chilling, chatting and of course the outdoors! Our award winning comedian guides are on hand to ease you in as the sun sets, lighting up London’s famous landmarks. 

After taking in all the sites in the summer dusk sunlight, and as Tower Bridge cruises into view, settle into your seat and brace yourself as things prepare to heat up!

Hold on tight as your expert skipper opens the throttle and rockets you down the river! Find out why we’re famous for our speedboat experiences as we twist and turn down to Canary Wharf for an unforgettable experience! Naturally, we’ll be playing all the latest summer hits or why not plug in your own playlist if you take all the tickets available for one ride.

Our high speed summer rides are sure to take your breath away, so once back to Tower Bridge we’ll bring you and your heart back down to earth with a delicious cocktail from DesignMyNight award winners, London Cocktail Club...enjoy one of their cocktails while floating on the Thames, with the sun setting behind Tower Bridge. As you enjoy your drink we will glide you back to the London Eye pier. 

Trusted as the number 1 attraction in London, DesignMyNight and The London Cocktail Club have teamed up with Thames Rockets to bring you the ultimate end of day (or start of night!) super-speedy summer speedboat ride.

The sun’s out and the evenings are long, which can only mean one thing. We’re ready. Are you?

Really nice experience. The performance of the tour guide was funny and entertaining. The experience of the speedboat was awesome and highly recommended to everyone visiting London. However the cocktail might have been better quality. Really good experience in general. Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2017-07-01

Really fun - was sceptical about the tour guide because of actually being a Londoner but it's not the usual stuff - I didn't know any of the facts she told us - and it was delivered in a lovely light hearted way. Thanks! Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2017-06-15

Thames Lates was so much fun. I wished it could have lasted for longer. Highly recommend it as something fun and a little random to do in London city <3 Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2017-06-10

As someone who has lived in London for 5 years and been on a number of river boat tours/cruises, I can definitely say this was the best and worth every penny! It was thrilling, interesting and overall great fun. Definitely recommend. Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2016-07-16

Can only highly recommend this speedboat tour! Having previously been on a daytime one, I couldn't wait to go again and the tour did not disappoint. Speedboating combined with a cocktail, a sunset and then later on London in the dark all lit up. Our crew was brilliant and super friendly too. Perfect evening!

We were met by Tristan and Mike on the quayside and then the party started. Great fun and would highly recommend. Both guys very knowledgeable of London's history with some cheesy jokes thrown in. Mojitos were great too. A must if in London. Information services at the Pier were not much help as we were not too sure where to meet but used our own instincts as to where to go. The meeting point is at loading bay 1. Ripper of a time we all had :) Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2016-08-13

The best touristy thing I've ever done! Beautiful evening, tour guide was great (and very informative) and the cocktail was lovely. Both myself and my partner who live in London and our visitors had a great evening! Visited London Eye Millenium Pier on 2016-07-14

An unexpected evening on the Thames was not hampered by cloudy weather or dying sunlight one bit. A leisurely "sail" down-river with a great commentary about the city was followed by a tear around Canary Wharf at ridiculous speed! Cannot recommend this enough. Think 'riverboat tour' meets 'floating rollercoaster of awesome'. The cocktails from London Cocktail Club were also fantastic.

Went to the first ever trip and it was great! We had an amazing sunny evening with incredible sunset views from the river. The guide was funny and it was cool seeing all the sites from the river. The speed boat bit was SUPER fun too. Def a memorable something different to do.

One of the best things I've ever done in London, Cocktails AND speedboats. Like being taken on a roller coaster and served a tasty beverage after being well shaken yourself!
