Erith Riverside

Looking across the Thames there are views of Rainham and Wennington marshes on the north bank, and the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge opened Erith Riverside by Her Majesty in 1991.

With the advent of the river steamer in the 19th Century, Erith enjoyed a brief period as a waterside resort.
