Waverley on London’s River


with Chris Philips

Last year marked the 40th anniversary of Waverley’s first visit to the Thames in 1978. This new DVD celebrates that anniversary. We join Waverley at Gravesend and sail up the Thames to London passing under the QEII Bridge, past the Thames Barrier and the high-rise buildings of London’s Docklands business district. We sail past the historic water front of Greenwich, where we cross – not once but three times – the Greenwich Meridian of zero degrees longitude, before the excitement of Tower Bridge opening for the steamer to sail further into the Upper Pool of London. With the help of maritime historian, Peter Box, we discover the history of passenger steamers on the Thames and, through archive footage, see the steamers of the past and Waverley on her first Thames visit in 1978. A very entertaining watch! Duration approx 53 minutes.
