We absolutely LOVED our trip on the Thames Rocket. Superbly piloted by Geoff and hosted by IoW Bill who delivered a masterclass narrative on the return leg. It was a totally exhilarating experience, and the London backdrop was the icing on the cake. Kudos to whoever created the music playlist because that was outstanding - listening to Clash playing London Calling while speeding along the Thames is a memory that will stay with me for a very long time. This is an experience you simply have to find time for. We would give more than 5 stars if it was possible.
