Festivals along the River Thames

The towns along the River Thames provide a wide variety of festivals throughout the year. From Food & Drink inspired, music and literary festivals to those based on the season.
Summer is when the River Thames comes to life with a spectacular array of festivals. However, there are still festivals going on all year round especially seasonal ones around Christmas such as the Festival of Lanterns and Town Carols at Wallingford.

Henley - Town of Festivals offers a wide range of festivals during the year. The Henley Festival showcases all the ingredients of the best festivals and is one of the biggest in the UK. The Traditional Boat Festival features the largest display of traditional boats in Europe, the fleet of Dunkirk "Little Ships" with MTB 102, Her Majesty's rowbarge "Gloriana", the largest gathering of amphibious vehicles to date, WW1 air display team, and a return visit by Bluebird K3.
