The river is a truly tranquil space in London

Mayor Boris Johnson calls for the creation of peaceful havens from the noise and chaos of modern London life, in this BBC London news video clip.

As all Londoners know, finding a quiet space in London can be nigh on impossible. Reducing noise (“the forgotten pollutant”) in a city of millions is a hard task; one that the Mayor would like to fix by creating quieter places with the use of screens and green spaces.

We at Topsail know that it can be relatively easy to find a quiet space in London – on the river. Far from the madding crowd, a Thames dinner cruise or other corporate sailing events on the water presents an ideal way to stay within London, but seemingly a million miles away from the noise and stress of the city streets.

Our quote of the week:

“How could drops of water know themselves to be a river? Yet the river flows on…”
