London's River - the City's ebb and flow

The Thames is London’s lifeblood. It has brought prosperity and security, but also deadly disease. A highway, water source and playground, its banks are lined with innovative structures (Millennium Bridge, Globe Theatre, Tate Modern), which tell the story of the City’s past and present.

Nearly all the regular walks and tours offered on this website are just turn up and pay. For these walks no advanced booking is possible. There are only two tours that need to be booked in advance (Smithfield Market walks and Guildhall tours) because of restricted numbers.
