The Thames flows through Central London and provides a stunning backdrop to many of the city's top tourist attractions. The 2,000-year-old river harbours much of London's history, as well as providing a host of sporting and leisure activities you can do on and around London's waterways.

The Thames in London offers river tours and cruises that feature sightseeing and commentary and Oyster and Travelcard holders can get discounts on many routes and hop-on, hop-off tickets may be available.

There are many famous places along the River Thames in London: Hampton Court Palace, Ham House, Syon House, Kew Gardens, and Battersea Power Station and in central London, there’s Lambeth Palace, Palace of Westminster, London Eye and the Tower of London.

The Thames Path National Trail’s London section covers 40 miles (64 km) of easy, level walking on both sides of the river from Hampton Court Palace, through the heart of London to the East India Dock on the north bank and the River Darent on the south bank.

The route is well marked by the National Trail symbol from west of London to the end of the National Trail at the Thames Barrier in the London Borough of Greenwich (on the south side) and at Island Gardens (on the north side).
