Taking in the palaces, processions, parties and promenades that made the London we know today, Royal River brings together paintings, manuscripts and rare and beautiful objects.

From London's birth, royalty have looked to the Thames to display their power, patronage and pageantry to a city and a people intimately and inextricably connected to the water. Celebrating Her Majesty the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the National Maritime Museum's 75th anniversary, Royal River explores the relationship between the monarch, the City and the people, as it was brought to life on the Thames " London's greatest thoroughfare.
