Cruise Ship “Silver Wind” Leaves London

A frequent visitor to London, on 19th June 2022 the cruise ship “Silver Wind” left its mooring at HMS Belfast and passed through Tower Bridge. Having passed through Tower Bridge, Silver Wind was taken past Bermondsey, guided down the River Thames in reverse by two tugs.

Ships normally leave their moorings at HMS Belfast in reverse. The ships are taken backwards at walking pace to Wapping, just over a mile downstream from Tower Bridge. On reaching Wapping, the ships are turned around by their tugs. Once that manoeuvre is completed the tugs are and the ship heads for the North Sea under their own power with a Port of London Authority Pilot onboard.
