The first day of the long jubilee weekend.
Jubilee events in SE1 on Friday included a party at the Blackfriars Wine Bar in Scoresby Street in aid of the Kids Company charity. Blackheath Morris Men and pearly kings and queens took part in the festivities.
Meanwhile dozens of volunteers joined Thames 21's Litter-free Jubilee event at Bankside, clearing rubbish from the foreshore in advance of Sunday's pageant.
