An annual celebration of classic, historic and working boats in the world famous docks located next to Tower Bridge.

Sign up for free tours of the docks hosted by the Marina Director of St Kat’s, relax in the quayside bars and restaurants, enjoy live music, family activities or just take in the fun and festive atmosphere on Marble Quay.

Among the scheduled events and attractions are the Queens Row Barge, 'Gloriana', the Massey Shaw fire-boat, the Steamtug 'Portwey', SB 'Cambria' , and Up Projects' Floating Cinema.
