The Tall Ships Festival (FULL)

Greenwich proudly welcomes back a breath-taking 40 strong fleet of Tall Ships and the event promises to go off with a real bang thanks in part to its spectacular fireworks display over the banks of the River Thames. The evening begins on board a river cruiser at Tower Bridge with a bubbly reception before a tasty finger buffet is served. You’ll be sailing through the heart of the action, past the world renowned Tall Ships in Greenwich. There’s a bar on board and with the landmarks of London spectacularly illuminated against the night sky, this really is the best way to enjoy both the Tall Ships and the city’s famous fireworks display.

William B was built as the Sir Thomas More for Thames Guided Tours in 1982. Her sister ship, Sir Richard Grenville, was delivered a year later and the two vessels worked together until 1988 when the Sir Thomas More was sold to Thames Television for private trips based in Teddington. It was only in 1999 that she was bought by Thames Leisure and renamed William B. She remains in the fleet to this day offering the Thames charter market a sophisticated and luxurious cruise for corporate events or private parties.William-B3
