If London is the country’s heart, the Thames is its big ol’ aorta, pumping life into the city, bringing joy and cheer (and shopping trolleys) to its millions of residents and visitors. Although its source lies out west in the Cotswolds, it’s the section running through the capital that’s most famous (thanks, ‘EastEnders’) and has been a crucial part of Londoners’ lives for millennia.
To celebrate the iconic river’s role in the life of the capital, Totally Thames festival 2019 is back for the whole of September (September 1 - 30). The annual festival has a brilliant line-up of events that truly gush about the waterway’s importance.
