Without the Thames, there would be no London.

The Thames is the city's lifeblood, bringing it prosperity and security... but also deadly disease. The river is much more than a water source. It has also been a highway, a playground, and the setting for some of London's finest buildings.

The walk will begin outside the City Information Centre opposite St. Paul's Cathedral, and take you past some of the famous river buildings nearby, including the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern and Millennium Bridge.

If you like the sound of this river walk, then how about something even better... an actual cruise up the river on a boat. That will take in a lot more sights, from, Big Ben all the way up to Greenwich. The two boat companies that we recommend are City Cruises and TRS (Thames River Services). You can check out Craig's review of each one on his blog: City Cruises review, and TRS review.
