Boat tour of West Silvertown will access the Millennium Mills

PUBLISHED: 10:00 10 June 2012

One of the last chances to see the derelict Millenium Mills in West Silvertown will take place on June 15.

The tour will give people the opportunity to take a look at the The River Princess, an old barge from the Mersey River which can only be accessed by entering the historic 59-acre site.

The large warehouses are normally behind locked gates and the whole plot has been bought by developers. The site was the backdrop for the likes of the TV series Ashes to Ashes.

Once at the barge, guests are promised an atmospheric and magical night.

Anyone interested should contact Tickets cost £4.

Half the takings will go to the Gasworks Dock Partnership, the charity behind proposals to revamp the derelict Cody Dock.
