The Totally Thames festival will once again grace the banks of our much-loved waterway next month (September 1-30). At this annual celebration of the River Thames, you can dive into a month-long party full of arts festivals, community events, river races, foreshore archaeology and environmental activities. There are new installations for 2018 and the event line-up is bigger than in previous years, so check out our pick of the highlights below and head down to the river for one of the many London events in September making a splash.

London's best Thames river cruises

There's a reason why pretty much every Bond film has a chase sequence on the Thames. James knows that for the best views of this city you should head for the river - and, if you catch a few international crooks along the way, well that's just an added bonus. Ditch dry land, hop aboard a Thames river cruise and get ready to spot some of London's top attractions along the watery way.
