The London Thames ‘Break the Barrier’ experience is a high-speed, musical thrill ride through the heart of the capital. Climb aboard a 630bhp speedboat and embark on a unique sightseeing tour that’s sure to blow away the cobwebs!
Trips depart from St. Katherine’s Pier, in the shadow of Tower Bridge. On arrival, you’ll be welcomed by a friendly staff member and issued with life jackets. After a short safety briefing, your skipper will power up the custom-built, twin four-stroke engines and guide you downstream, under the bridge and towards Canary Wharf. The exhilarating, forty-minute ride will take you past familiar landmarks, like Greenwich University, the Royal Observatory, the Cutty Sark, the O2 Arena and, finally, the Thames Barrier flood defence. They’ll be high-speed twists and turns, entertaining commentary from your onboard guide, and a kick-ass soundtrack drawn from the last sixty years of pop hits. You’ll be immersed in the history of Great Britain, before returning to St. Katherine’s Pier – windswept and crying out for more!
The London Thames ‘Break the Barrier’ Experience will leave passengers breathless and ready to boogie. An Experience Days voucher makes a cracking gift for the adrenaline junkie in your life!
