The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

Celebrations will take place between the 2-5 June for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Events calendar sponsored by AVIS

On Sunday 3 June a flotilla of more than 1,000 private boats will proceed down the Thames as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The procession is more than seven miles long and will begin upriver of Battersea bridge and finish downriver of Tower Bridge between 2 pm and 6 pm.

Boats of all shapes and sizes will participate in the event, from rowed boats to working boats right through to pleasure vessels. The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant will be the largest flotilla ever held on the Thames.

The armed forces, police, fire and rescue services will also be present as part of the pageant, aiming to reflect the country's rich maritime history.

As well as passenger vessels carrying more than 30,000 members of the public as part of the procession, The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will travel down the river in a Royal Barge as the centrepiece to the flotilla.

The boats and vessels will be be decked in union flags and bunting to make the event a truly royal occasion.
