Fancy playing Bond for a day? Or simply feeling the wind in your hair as you whip along the Thames' 'high speed zone'? Roll up for a ride in the new racing red Thames Rocket – travelling at 35 miles an hour, it’s now the fastest public speedboat to zip along the river. The 12-metre boat seats 12, with waterproofs and lifejackets provided, for a 40-minute journey that kicks off from St Katherine's Dock. It’s accompanied by a humorous narrative from your skipper-cum-comic, as well as a cheeky bit of the Bond theme tune. Booking essential; visit the website to reserve tickets. Suitable for age ten-plus.
