They might have ditched the London Boat Show but Beale Park lives on!
Arthur Beale will be there as usual soaking up the relaxing atmosphere. Why not come along? You can visit for the day on Friday, Saturday or Sunday or get a spot in the camping field and stay overnight for a really easy going weekend. There will be lots of small varnished wooden boats on display, often with their proud builders alongside. Most would be happy to discuss a special commission to realize your dream boat! If you are not quite ready for that, then there are plenty of other stands scattered around the beautiful lake beside the Thames. Watercraft will be there selling their first class magazine, Lodestar books will have their entire range of excellent nautical books and of course there will be ice cream, beer, coffee and, with any luck, freshly smoked kippers.
