A river and environmental zone with stalls and attractions from charities and businesses involved with the river's ecology, wildlife, history and the industries that the Thames supports.

Some of the activities provided by Thames-based groups include: swash-buckling sailors from the Golden Hinde who demonstrate nautical skills and tell tales of their voyages at sea; Wildlife Man Jules conducts pond-dipping demonstrations for children to find and identify water-based mini-beasts; hands-on willow-sculpting workshops led by professional artists to create fish ‘take-aways’; explore the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust's curious collection; and on the river, there are kayaking demonstrations by members of Westminster Boating Base.  

Make friends with mini-beasts, stroll around stalls and take part in creative activities to discover more about the Thames, boating and marine conservation with your family.
