Wren by the River

A one-hour special sailing led by Colin Thom, Director of the Survey of London

On 1st September Uber Boat by Thames Clippers will host Wren by the River, a unique one-hour boat tour led by Colin Thom, Director of the Survey of London, and a leading expert in London’s architectural history.  Passengers will be treated to an introduction to Wren’s London legacy, from the incredible perspective of the river Thames. The boat tour will take passengers past Wren’s greatest hits by the river, including the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, St Paul’s Cathedral, Monument, and Royal Hospital Chelsea, as well as other historic riverside points of architectural interest. The boat will depart at 7.00pm from North Greenwich Pier and arrive at Battersea Power Station Pier at 8.00pm. A café bar will be available on board throughout the journey.

This event is included in The Wren London Series, encompassing many of the facets of Wren’s life and work as an architect, at some of his most significant sites in London.
