"The River Thames Alliance is all about reminding people that the River Thames is more than just London - it's also the green, beautiful, relaxing, vibrant and quintessentially English river that flows outside of London...together we can really promote one of England's greatest assets!" Actor David Suchet, waterway enthusiast
The Visit Thames website has been created by the Visit Thames Marketing Partnership. The Alliance is a partnership of public and private sector organisations set up to promote the non-tidal Thames to visitors.
We created this site because we want people to make the most of the River Thames. You might be a keen boater or walker already, or you might never have been near the River Thames - whatever your background or interest, we would love you to visit the area!
Visit Thames is a great marketing tool, so if you own a business by the river, why not promote it by joining the Visit Thames Marketing Partnership?
