SNEAK PEEK: See the Jubilee flotilla formation before Sunday’s Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant:

Thames Jubilee Pageant Infographic from | Sunday 3rd June

Tall ships, rowboats and barges take to the Thames for the biggest flotilla London has seen in centuries.

A highlight of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee weekend in June, the Thames Jubilee Pageant sees the Queen joined by a flotilla of 1,000 boats. The Infographic / 3D Map uniquely details the carefully choreographed formation in which the 1,000 boats will collectively navigate the Thames like synchronised swimmers. Her Majesty and senior members of the Royal Family will travel aboard the Spirit of Chartwell, accompanied by music from a floating bell tower; the first of its kind ever to be on mounted on the river. As the eight floating bells are rung, they will be answered by peals sounding from churches up and down the country. There will be 10 musical barges with - appropriately - an orchestra playing James Bond theme tunes as it passes the MI6 building. The last vessel in the flotilla, Symphony (carrying the London Philharmonic Orchestra on board), will pass under Tower Bridge at around 5.30pm, where there will be a spectacular ‘avenue of sail’ of more that 47 tall ships too large to pass under London Bridge. Although the official route comes to an end at Tower Bridge, the majority of the boats will continue on towards Greenwich - offering the public in south-east London further opportunities to view the spectacle.  Source:
