London Rivers Week runs from Saturday May 25 – Sunday June 2 2019
Launch opening event – Saturday May 25
There are more than 600km of waterway running through the capital, the same distance between Brighton and Edinburgh – a huge potential resource for people and wildlife not yet fully tapped..
Many of London’s rivers have been hidden behind buildings or buried underground. But many lost rivers are now being brought back to life – restored back to as natural a state as possible by removing concrete banks, replanting and allowing the river to flow more naturally. London Rivers Week helps you find these rewilded rivers and discover what they can do for you, our city and its wildlife.
