Ever seen Tower bridge lift? What about going through as all of London stops to watch?
Hermitage River Projects is excited to offer you exactly this. Dutch sailing barge Volharding will be doing trips on Saturday 21st September. Starting at Hermitage you’ll be able to explore our community of historic vessels, residents will be on hand to answer question on what living aboard is like. We’ll then start with a safety briefing before casting off. Once in position, listen carefully for the alarm as the bridge is cleared. Then as the arms start to lift we’ll glide through, waving as the crowds take our photo. As we turn around you’ll get an up close view of HMS Belfast, before the bridge lifts again to allow our return. Tea coffee and biscuits will be served during your voyage which will last approximately 2hours.
Event Full? Join us just for the historic boats and refreshments, we're open all weekend as part of London Open House. For details see hrprojects.org
