The Royal River Thames, from the Cotswolds to London

This summer why not take a short break and explore all the Royal River Thames has to offer outside London, with lots of things to do? There are some great riverside hotels and enjoy Royal Windsor and the traditional market towns along the river.  If it’s a rainy day, visit one of the many museums or spas along the River Thames.

Of course, the most popular activity on the Thames is boating in one form or another, whether it’s enjoying a guided cruise on the river, trying your hand at sailing, canoeing, punting, rowing or hiring a motor boat for the day there’s plenty to choose from. So much so, why not choose a holiday afloat for a few days or longer. We have some great ideas for boating holidays on the Thames or why not read our blog articles for further inspiration.

You can even learn to sail on the Thames and then take time to enjoy stopping off at one of the many marinas.
