THE 1930s style pleasure cruiser, Balmoral, has made a grand return to the Thames.

The excursion ship has been making trips up the river to Greenwich and down into the Thames Estuary to Southend, Essex, and Whitstable, Kent.

And there is still a week left to enjoy the famous sights of the river by day or evening and relax in the lounges or find a quiet corner on deck.

Information about sailing times of all pleasure boats on the Thames can be obtained at Towncentric on 01474 337600.
