London Rivers Week Events 2019

London Rivers Week

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. In the past our rivers were often hidden behind buildings, artificially straightened or even buried underground. But now many lost rivers are coming back to life by being restored back to as natural a state as possible.

London Rivers Week events help you find these rewilded rivers and discover what they can do for you, our city and its wildlife.
