Join Alex Lifschutz, Director of Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands (LD) – the project architects behind Illuminated River – for a journey under the rivets of London, Cannon Street, Southwark and Millennium Bridges, and kindly arranged by Thames Clippers. LDS were established in 1986, and have since completed a range of award-winning projects – from long-standing work on London’s South Bank, to innovative residential and office buildings, masterplans and the Golden Jubilee footbridges.

This boat tour has been arranged in partnership with Thames Clippers as part of Totally Thames Festival to provide low cost access to the Thames and to the Illuminated River artwork, which is best experienced from the river itself. The boat tours offer the opportunity to sail underneath the bridges and view the beautiful latticework of these architectural structures, which have been artistically lit for the first time.

Illuminated River and Historic England will take you on a journey through time, delving into the heritage of these great landmarks that have stood at the very heart of the story of London.

The boat tour lasts approximately 45 minutes.

£6 per adult / £4.50 concession

Wheelchair accessible. If you require wheelchair access, please consult the Thames Clippers website. There is an audio description of the Illuminated River artwork for blind and partially sighted people, produced by Vocaleyes, that can be downloaded from Soundcloud.
