On Saturday 24 September 2022, the Jubilee Reflections Flotilla will mark the River Thames’ celebration of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Reflections will be an opportunity for the River Thames’ community and its stakeholders to come together to capture the enchantment of the night river, creating reflections as the boats glide peacefully by – allowing those viewing to remember the past and think to the future, whilst reflecting on Her Majesty’s reign and celebrate such a marvellous achievement. At dusk an illuminated flotilla of invited vessels, both manpowered and motorised, will parade down through central London from Chelsea to Tower Bridge. All craft will be decorated in white lights which will reflect on the water’s surface, creating a river of light. Find out more This event is part of Totally Thames Festival.
