See the magnificent Tall Ships as they return to the Maritime Greenwich and Royal Arsenal Woolwich riverfronts.
A fleet of more than 30 ships takes to the river Thames for four days of festivities over the Easter weekend, as the crews prepare for a 7,000 nautical mile transatlantic race to Canada. The vessels will leave London at the end of the weekend, setting sail for Portugal, Bermuda and Boston, before arriving in Quebec on 18 July.
Climb aboard one of the spectacular Tall Ships, watch the dazzling fireworks light up the river, and enjoy maritime-themed activities in Woolwich and Greenwich town centres. Or get up close to the ships and watch the fireworks from the river with a glass of sparkling wine in hand on a City Cruises Tall Ships Firework Cruise.
The weekend culminates in a huge Parade of Sail at around 5pm on 16 April, as 30 Tall Ships are joined by a number of smaller sailing vessels to sail out of London for Canada.
Make a day of it by exploring Cutty Sark, the Royal Observatory and the National Maritime Museum, immersing yourself in the rich maritime history of Greenwich.
