Such an iconic and impressive scenic backdrop for your holiday photos/instagrams/selfies. The River Thames and its surrounding buildings are the quintessential London snapshots, so I would definitely recommend heading to this area on a walkabout.

The wind pouring across the river nearly chilled us to our breaking points. But there's a majesty to the Thames, as it seems to hearken back to centuries ago. Incredibly romantic!

Like the Seine, everything in London is somehow marked by the Thames. In my opinion, not quite as elegant as the Seine, but Paris is always the exception. You can take boat trips between significant locations - worth the trip.

The River Thames is not just a river that rivers through London, it holds much significance in commerce, transport, and tourism in the past, present, and no doubt the future for London.

One of my favorite parts of the downtown area. Great places to get some peace from the hustle and bustle of the city. Definitely take one of the river taxis! The boats are very nice, with mini bar/cafe on board, and the ride is beautiful! You don't have to just take one of the tour rides, they now have options where you can get on and get off at different locations instead of taking a loop. Great way to see the sites from a different perspective!

Like most ancient cities, Londinium was a Roman fort built along a river. The Thames Estuary connects London to the English Channel. William the Conqueror built the Tower of London to defend the mouth of the river. Today the Thames waterfront is one of the nicest places to walk in the city and the bridges give some of the best views in town.

The Thames River is one of the defining characteristics of London and is equivalent to the Seine River in Paris. It cuts across the London, so there are many bridges. Thus, you'll have plenty of opportunities to cross the Thames River, including the famous London Bridge, Tower Bridge, and Millennium Bridge.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

The River Thames cuts through the city of London, separating the city of Westminster from Central London. It is lined by many of London's famous landmarks, including the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, and crossed by some of London's infamous bridges, such as The Tower Bridge, London Bridge, and Waterloo Bridge.Recommended for:Local Culture

The River Thames is great to walk along and take pictures of all the amazing sites of old and new buildings that run up and down it. Just note that the big bridge is Tower Bridge...London Bridge is actually very small
