River Lea Boat Cruise

River Lea Boat Cruise

All tickets sold
Join us to discover the heritage and rural beauty of the Lea Valley, while cruising along the River Lea aboard a modern, fully licensed vessel. The amazing rivers of the Lee and Stort have been well maintained, but with no real opportunity for the general public to experience them for nearly 30 years.

Date/Time: Tuesday, 7th September 2021 at 12:00 - 14:30

Location: Stratford Waterfront Pontoon, Near ArcelorMittal Orbit, Stratford, London

Price: £22 per person. £44 for retiree and guest

Event Organiser: Simon Russell

Our two and a half hour river cruise will take us all around the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to the far reaches of the old River Lea and tributaries. We will pass through Carpenters Road Lock, which is the only one of its kind in the UK and perhaps in the world, because it has a set of vertical lift double radial gates.

Note: If you plan to drive into London, there are car parks at the Westfield Stratford Centre. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the shopping centre or Stratford station to the Waterfront Pontoon, where we board. This is in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, close to the ArcelorMittal Orbit and the Football Stadium. There are some steps down to the pontoon.

Please provide a stamped addressed envelope for confirmation of your booking and further information about this event, including directions and a map.
