Terrible Thames

Horrible Histories proudly presents its wicked river tour – Terrible Thames!

You’ve seen them on stage, now join them onboard, for a sensational sightseeing tour of the River Thames like no other.

Tremble in terror at the Tower! Sizzle at the Savoy! Give Cleopatra the needle! Be washed away at Westminster! Lose yourself in Lambeth! Get gobsmacked by the Globe! Hold onto your head at London Bridge and escape from Execution Dock. Take a dive with Horrible Histories into the stories of King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Julius Caesar, Queen Boudicca, Jack the Ripper and Captain Kidd, in this history of the Thames with the nasty bits left in!

This 45-minute Terrible Thames tour from Tower Bridge to the Palace of Westminster and back has been acclaimed by critics and the public for the wonderfully entertaining way it brings London to life, whilst the audience cruise in comfort on the majestic river.

“A rip-roaring, riotous sightseeing tour kids and adults will never forget!” The Sun
