The Royal River Thames, from the Cotswolds to London

Welcome to the essential guide to places to visit, things to do and places to stay along the Royal River Thames, providing great experiences, stretching from Lechlade in Gloucestershire, through London with its iconic views and out to the sea. Read our Six Autumn Ideas for ways of enjoying the River.

Now that it’s autumn, there’s no better way than to enjoy a walk along the River Thames or one of the many walks that start from the Thames and take pleasure in the red and gold landscapes.

Take to the water either hiring a boat or joining one of the pleasure cruises along the thames. Find out more about ‘Boating on the Thames’.

Or now that the summer is over and you’ve started to think about next year’s holiday, why not plan your escape for a short break or week’s boating holiday along the Thames in 2016.
