Cradle of Thames Boatbuilding

Join us on this unusual guided tour of working west London shipyards. The day will include a yard in Brentford – a site where boats have been built and repaired since the 1700s – as well as a visit to Lots Ait, one of the most important maritime heritage sites in west London. Here, historic boatbuilding and repair yards still survive and are being restored.

This tour will be led by Richard Albanese, MHT Trustee and Maritime Manager of Trinity Buoy Wharf and SS Robin.
