Dozens of tall-masted sailing ships will grace the east end of the Thames with their presence for this five-day festival. It’s a chance to taste just how busy and vital the Thames used to be as the quickest trade route out and into the city, and how stunning it would have been to stand bankside and witness huge vessels swim past.

Visitors can even climb on board, as well as enjoying gigs, parades, firework displays and other entertainments. This event coincides with the Totally Thames festival.
