London based boats are being made ready by their owners to take part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.

Dedicated owners have spent months preparing a wide range of vessels to be part of the floating celebration.

One million people are expected to line the Thames when about one thousand boats form the flotilla as part of the Jubilee celebrations.

The full route stretches from Hammersmith in the west to the Old Greenwich Royal Naval College in the east.

The Queen herself may recognise one of the boats, The Jolly Brit which is a jolly boat from the former Royal Yacht Britannia.

Jolly boats were used by members of the Royal Family and other guests when enjoying trips ashore from the yacht.

More familiar to Londoners is the replica of Sir Francis Drakes warship The Golden Hinde and the Mississippi paddle steamer New Southern Belle.

If you want the experience of cruising the River Thames book a Uk Canal Boating Holiday from Aldermaston Marina.

Cruise into the heart of the London on a Uk Canal Boating Holiday to enjoy the pomp and ceremony that the diamond Jubilee celebrations will provide.
