The 28th August marks the beginning of the Falmouth Regatta. Activities will begin with a shore-side festival, which will then move onto a race to the Isle of White. Finally, fifty majestic ships from around the world will cruise to Royal Greenwich for the largest Tall Ship Festival in twenty-five years.

From the 5th - 9th September, Royal Greenwich will host five action-pact days of family fun, opening with a spectacular underwater lantern display. There will also be a Thames Barge Parade, fireworks displays, talks, prize givings, an art workshop, and group cruises.

During the event, you will also be able to enjoy a range of food and drink, from picnics to afternoon tea at the Queen's House. The Queen's House is usually closed to the public, but until the 27th September you can book afternoon tea and tours. There are free menus to choose from, which include traditional, vegan, and gluten free.
