Reflections Flotilla

At dusk on Saturday 24 September, the Reflections flotilla was a tribute by the River Thames community marking the passing of Her Majesty the Queen and the accession of King Charles III. Boats glided peacefully by, allowing those viewing to remember the past and think positively about the future.

The illuminated flotilla comprised a hundred and fifty vessels, both manpowered and motorised, all of which were decorated in white lights. Her Majesty The Queen’s Row Barge, Gloriana is the flotilla’s centrepiece.

The flotilla started at Albert Bridge and from there it will headed downriver through central London and arriving at Tower Bridge at 20.15. The Reflections flotilla passed under the seven Illuminated River bridges and these were beautifully lit up in a special display by the lighting artist Leo Villareal. Reflections culminated in the raising of Tower Bridge which was bathed in purple light.

London’s River Thames has played an important role in many Royal and State occasions over the centuries, and this memorable event will continue this age-old tradition. Reflections is thought to be the first illuminated flotilla to be seen on the Thames for over three hundred years.

Thank you to all the NER volunteers who supported this event and we hope you have some amazing memories from the night!
