News: Horrible Histories presents a wicked new boat tour Terrible Thames

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, the Duke of Wellington, Queen Boudicca, Jack the Ripper and Captain Kidd, in this history of the Thames with the nasty bits left in!
Birmingham Stage Company and Woods Silver Fleet announce the launch of a brand new tourist experience for London this summer. Horrible Histories Live Onboard! Terrible Thames will set sail on the high (& low) tides of the city’s historic river.
Leaving from Tower Bridge Quay, join the Horrible Histories team on a fantastic journey to discover the terrible truth about London’s most iconic landmarks. Combining immersive theatre in Horrible Histories style, the tour will surprise and shock in equal measure as it delivers its unique take on London to thrill both children and adults alike. 
With many families seeking the delights of the staycation, visiting the nation’s capital will be at the top of many lists. A brand new tourist experience awaits… 
Keeping safety top of the agenda, the tour will be hosted aboard one of Woods Silver Fleet’s premier luxury sightseeing cruisers and is currently working on a reduced capacity of 120 people per trip (normal capacity 200).  We have implemented and continue to monitor the Government’s Covid-19 reopening guidance and Public Health England advice. Our boat has been awarded Visit Britain’s ‘Good to Go’ certification which reassures visitors that appropriate Covid-19 Secure processes are in place and as a business we are ‘Good to Go’!
Birmingham Stage Company and Woods Silver Fleet are dedicated to improving the accessibility for all visitors to this new experience and ask that any assisted wheelchair access that is required is booked in advance.  Please email for more information.
