Description

Meet your friendly skipper and crew at Blackfriars Pier and collect your waterproof jacket, along with the latest automatic inflatable life jacket. Listen to the safety briefing before you board the power boat and sit in the state-of-the-art suspension seats.   Listen to the 550hp turbo diesel engines fire up to take you past monuments such as the Tate Modern, Millennium Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe and St. Paul's Cathedral. Head towards London Bridge and the HMS Belfast warship as you make your way towards the Tower of London. Take souvenir photos as you pass under Tower Bridge. Then, hold on tight as you enter the high speed zone and race through the Wapping district at 35mph. Pass the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf as you speed down to the Royal Naval College and Cutty Sark in Greenwich. Continue to the O2 Arena (formerly the Millennium Dome) before turning around and returning to Blackfriars Pier. Listen to some great British music throughout the ride for a trip to remember.
