Tudor River pageant

A Tudor River pageant took place this past Saturday, in celebration of the 500th anniversary weekend of Henry's coronation. It starts from the Tower of London and goes down the Thames and ends up at Hampton Court.

"As part of the Living Weekend of re-enactments planned in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces as part of the Mayor's Story of London festival, an elaborate flotilla of traditional oared skiffs will accompany 'Henry VIII' and 'Kateryn Parr' as they travel aboard the Royal Shallop Jubilant from the Tower of London to a party at Hampton Court Palace.
