The Heritage Alliance will be holding its Heritage Day this year on Thursday, 8 December.

Registration is open for one of the biggest events in the heritage calendar – the Heritage Alliance’s annual Heritage Day, sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance Group.

Heritage Day 2011 will take place on Thursday 8 December in the Grade II listed Wapping Hydraulic Power Station (lunchtime reception) and its neighbour the Metropolitan Wharf building (afternoon conference). These fascinating examples of London’s rich industrial history are situated in the well-known Wapping Wall Conservation Area, lying on the north bank of the Thames midway between the City of London and Canary Wharf. These two neighbouring buildings form two sides of the Wapping Heritage Triangle, with London’s oldest surviving riverside pub, the well-known Prospect of Whitby (built in 1543), forming the third. Wapping is easily reached by public transport from central London within 20 minutes, or drivers can make use of the venue’s free car park.
