River Thames flows through southern England. Known as River Thames in greater London, it is also known as “Isis” as it flows through Oxford. Has 40 plus locks along its length. In London many historic sites sit on its banks or close by.

I did a speed boat tour on the Thames River and it definitely was a must. The music, the guide telling me about the history was definitely a must. Definitely will do once I am back in London.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
