Classic Boats Festival 2016, St Katharine Docks

St Katharine's is buzzing with atmosphere, due to the fine collection of classic boats gathered for the event. Many can be visited, so it's a great opportunity  for people to go on a boat, maybe for the first time. It includes  famous veteran boats that crossed the Channel to Dunkirk, rescuing soldiers trapped on the beaches at Dunkirk in the Second World War. The lunchtime concerts on the floating pontoon are another good feature; yesterday we had great entertainment from an inspired saxophone quintet. There are more pics in the Classic Boats Festival photo album.
