Occasional open weekend to go on board the barges moored next to Tower Bridge.
They will also have motor tug Touchstone arriving from Chatham and open to visitors, a pop-up cafe in the pier house and the resident live-aboard boats to view close up, mainly Dutch and English river barges, and all in navigable condition with either working engines or sailing rigs, or both.
Come and find out from those who live here what it is like to live on board a barge on the river.
Tug Touchstone was built in 1962 on the Thames in Charlton and worked the Thames and the Medway until 1994. Length 21m x beam 5.7m x draft 2.3m. Engine Blackstone 517hp, gross tonnage 68. A great piece of Thames river history, in full working order.
Cost: Free of Charge
