Between 2008 and 2010, Phoenicia successfully circumnavigated the whole of Africa, recreating a feat first accomplished by Phoenician mariners in about 600BC. There is a free exhibition aboard the vessel.
London Area Sea Cadets are also on hand over the weekend with boats on the water and a stand demonstrating knot tying and more.
And, don’t miss the festival’s Rivers of the World outdoor exhibition! There will also be a gourmet food market at Marble Quay.
You can travel to St Katharine Docks in style with a free River Taxi between Festival Pier and St Katharine’s Pier. Sailings are on the hour from Festival Pier and half past the hour from St Katharine’s Pier. The first taxi is at 10am and the last is at 6pm.
