Classic Boat Festival & Great River Race

The Classic Boat Festival at St Katherine Docks was just one of two events I was interested in seeing on my visit to London yesterday. Over 40 vintage boats were on display and visitors were able to get close to, and in some cases onto the vessels.It’s worth clicking on these images to get an even better view!


My 2nd reason for yesterday’s trip was to see the annual Great River Race, in which over 300 boats row or paddle 21 miles along the Thames in a race that’s not for the weak or faint-hearted!

Finally from the day, a few images taken whilst walking and crossing both sides of the Thames. In the picture on the left the sand sculpture is awaiting its destruction by the incoming tide as the sculptor and his admirers look on.

The last 4 images capture the Shard from various places. It’s a fantastic building, adjacent to London Bridge station, and is well worth a visit just to stand at the bottom and look up as it disappears into the heavens.

Have your say!
