Classic Boat Festival ★★★★ FREE


Part of the “Totally Thames” event that runs throughout September, the Classic Boat Festival is a must for anyone who likes boats and is a lot of fun for others. There is a large number of the small boats that participated in the Dunkirk evacuation, and it is great to read their histories and chat with present owners. The Royal Barge commissioned in 2000 for the Jubilee is on show, and you can sample kayaking or go aboard a police boat. For us, the highlight was the free tour of the old steam tug, Portwey. A dedicated team of volunteers really communicated their passion for the old tug. There are some food stalls around the area and, of course, lots of good food and drinks at the restaurants around the dock.
