Tourists heading to London hotels later this summer may want to pack their most elegant clothing, as the classy Thames Revival is hitting the capital once again.

Taking place from September 10th to 12th 2010, this fun occasion celebrates the golden days of sailing and vintage glamour at St Katherine Docks.

It forms a part of the Mayor's Thames Festival, which involves a whole host of extravagant and free entertainment, such as a night carnival, art installations, street performances and illuminations on the iconic London river.

The Thames Revival rally was launched last year and was such a success that it has been confirmed again for this summer as well.

"Entering the historic St Katharine Docks was like stepping back in time as you cast your eye around a fabulous variety of craft," reflected the organisers.

There will be plenty more maritime exploits at this year's event, with vessels such as the tall ship Fryderich Chopin moored at the port and plenty of fabulous performances taking place on the river, as well as on land.

Visitors who happen to own a classic boat may well be able to take part in the rally - which involves a fee - but for the majority it is a great opportunity to see some top-notch vintage boats.
