The Royal River Thames, from the Cotswolds to London

If your New Year’s resolution is to be more healthy 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.

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 or the dreaming spires of Oxford and the traditional market towns such as Henley along the river.  If it’s a rainy day, visit one of the many museums or spas along the River Thames.

Planning a holiday, 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.

The marinas are open all year and you can discover some great places to eat, or buy local produce. If you have enjoyed hiring a boat on the river this year, have you thought about buying your own boat? You can even learn to sail on the Thames, find out more in our feature 'How do I get Started?'
