Today's Treasures At St Katharine Docks (6) Gloriana, The Queen's Rowbarge
Gloriana can be seen at St Katharine Docks during the Summer, unless she is out on the Thames fulfilling her work being used by charities or for official duties. Her exquisite features are best observed side on; unfortunately, many visitors have been disappointed when they were only able to see her 'end on' during dock reorganisation. This has been somewhat rectified now and people coming specially to see her are advised to check with the Gloriana website events page to avoid disappointment (see link below).
Gloriana is featured in 'The Story of St Katharine's' and their official website is excellent. This is featured more fully in my book, The Story Of St Katharine's.
