Apartment Living on the River Thames


Winding its way through peaceful countryside landscape to the city's urban settings, the River Thames perfectly reflects the diversity of the capital and its neighborhoods. The Thames branches out into many more waterways and canals and has been one of the most significant and fascinating waterways with its historic, social and environmental importance. Offering the peacefulness of the water and beautiful views over major London attractions, London serviced apartments near the River Thames are highly sought after.

Facts

Beginning as a trickle in a Gloucestershire meadow, the River Thames flows for more than 217km (135 miles) though the Cotswolds, Oxford, Henley and Windsor before it reaches London. It is the longest river in England and with a distance of 296km ( 184 miles ) from its source, The Thames Path makes the longest riverside walk in Europe.

Home to over 119 species of fish and important wildlife habitats, the Thames River boasts many areas of outstanding natural beauty and is the only river in Europe to have a national trail follows its entire length.

Attractions

Whether you would prefer a scenic river cruise with the family, a day out fishing with the lads or a visit to some of England’s historical landmarks, you'll find everything you need on the banks of the River Thames. From world heritage sites to the latest unmissable attractions, the Thames has it all with sights like the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Kew Gardens and the Maritime Museum sitting along the river banks.

Cruises

Dine in style by hopping on board a dinner cruise where you can enjoy stunning views as you feast. Set to a backdrop of the capital’s most iconic landmarks, you'll experience an entertaining journey from Westminster Pier to the Thames Barrier and back with live entertainment on board guaranteed to have you dancing the night away.
