With chances to get active with watersports, fun angling games, fascinating foreshore walks, live music acts and refreshment stalls there is a brilliant day out waiting for all the family!
Windrush trips around the Thames Islands
The Windrush was built in 1989 in Burnham-on-Crouch and used by the National Rivers Authority, subsequently the Environment Agency as an inspection launch on the Thames based at Reading. Named after the Thames tributary she was often used for royal and civic occasions and eventually sold on in 2006. Of steel construction and teak interior she is powered by two Mermaid Ford 6 cylinder engines and is currently owned by Eel Pie Slipways, whose Director Ken Dwan is a former Royal Waterman and Queen's Bargemaster.
Come aboard Windrush for an hour's guided trip around the Thames islands at 11am, 12.15pm, 1.30pm & 2.45pm from Kew Pier, Richmond, TW9 3BE.
