The "Gloriana" is the Queen's barge, which was used for the Diamond Jubilee Parade along the Thames.
St Katharine Docks
St Katharine Docks were one of the commercial docks serving London, on the north side of the river Thames just east (downstream) of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. They were part of the Port of London, in the area now known as the Docklands, and are now a popular housing and leisure complex.
The docks were officially opened in 1828 but never fully recovered after being badly damaged by German bombing during the Second World War and in 1968 were sold to the Greater London Council. Most of the original warehouses were demolished and mostly replaced by modern commercial buildings in the early 1970s, with the docks themselves becoming a marina. The development has often been cited as a model example of successful urban redevelopment.
