The lower Thames from Henley to central London and Greenwich embraces many landscapes from rural meadows with kissing gates to royal palaces and castles, from tiny hamlets to the historic towns and cities of Windsor and London and from backwaters and weirs to old dockyards. With our knowledge of the Thames we have created an itinerary designed to give you time to enjoy all the delights this great river has to offer.
Threading its course through history and royalty, the Thames provides such a great way to discover the sights and smells of quintessential England . Take in Windsor Castle and the palaces at Hampton Court and Kew, the unsung but very English details that line the river banks, the charming towns of Henley and Marlow and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. Walk through the heart of London and sleepy rural villages, enjoy the wildlife and discover an England most tourists rarely see.
- Additional nights in Windsor and London
- Follow the entire river from its source by adding our Walk the Upper Thames tour. 13 nights in total, costing £2,445 per person
