Tall Ships Leave London

There has been a festival at Greenwich over the last few days with over 50 Tall Ships attending from all over the world.  This afternoon they left london and went out to sea. It is 40+ years since London has seen such a fleet that we dicided it should not be missed. We took the buses from Marylebone Station to North Greenwich so we could cross the Thames by cablecar.This gave us a seagull's eye view of a few ships sailing up the river to the assemby pint at Greenwich.

I cannot offer any commentary on the following pictures except to say that we took the  photographs from the north bank near Pontoon Dock DLR station. This is a favourite spot for us to watch the river and the traffice through the Thames Barrier.


  1. Interesting pictures of the Tall Ships. Why not take a peek at my blog: martinlloydauthor.blogspot.co.uk? We were actually ON one of the Thames sailing barges which accompanied the ships.
