Join us on a River Thames Boat Trip!

The Thames Estuary Partnership, together with filmmaker Dorothy Leiper, are co-producing a 60-min documentary, The Living Thames.

Introduced by Sir David Attenborough and presented by TEP’s president Chris Baines, the film is an odyssey along the Thames as it meanders through London and flows out to sea, exploring its ever-changing ecology.

For most people who see the Thames every day, it’s a mystery. Chris goes on a journey, from Teddington to the sea, meeting people who tell him more and more about just how much life there is, in and around the Thames.

The Living Thames was shot in September 2016. It’s now being edited and is looking fabulous.

We plan to complete the film by the end of September 2017.  We will then give DVDs of it to schools near the Thames, screen it in community venues and enter it in film festivals worldwide to show the wonder of the river and encourage everyone to work together to ensure its continued vitality.

Courtesy of City Cruises, who have given us use of MV Westminster, we invite you to join us on a boat trip on the Thames. All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the post-production costs of the film, including sound design, music and colour grading.

Leaving Tower Pier at 2pm sharp, we will cruise downstream to Greenwich and, depending on the tide, go as far as the Thames Barrier then upstream to Westminster, returning to Tower Pier at 5pm.

There will be talks on Thames ecology and archaeology from independent environmentalist Chris Baines, marine and estuarine scientist Amy Pryor, aquatic consultant Steve Colclough and Thames archaeologist Dr Fiona Haughey.


£30 for a double ticket.

40 double tickets available.


There will be a bar on board if you fancy a tipple!
