An unmissable parade of Thames Sailing Barges sailing from the Isle of Dogs to London Bridge.

The Thames Sailing Barges will lock out of West India Dock and head up river towards Tower Bridge. There they will create an amazing sight at midday as Tower Bridge will lift, almost fully, and the barges parade into the Pool of London. This is the heart of London where they used to trade at the beginning of the 20th century and this event will be the largest gathering of Thames Sailing Barges seen here since those days.
