Relishing The Royals
Here is the Thames as you've never seen it before. This is East London, home to the 2012 London Summer Games. Out here the skies and the waterscape are immense. See iconic architecture, stroll through London's first post-modern public park and admire the Thames Barrier, opened by the Queen in 1984 and helping Londoners keep our heads above water. In the Barrier's first decade of operation it was raised against the tide four times; in the last decade, 76 times.
