Totally ThamesTaking place for the first time throughout September, Totally Thames is an exciting new, month-long arts and cultural celebration of London's river, featuring over 100 river-related events along its entire 42 mile course through the capital. The festival will take place at various venues between Hampton Court Bridge in the west and the Dartford Crossing in the east. One event, the River Relay, will go even further, covering the whole 215 mile course of the Thames from its source to the sea. The festival - much of which is free - celebrates the main waterway which winds its way through the heart of the city, through a diverse mix of art, music, and educational events both on the water and along its banks and bridges at various riverside locations from Westminster Bridge to Tower Bridge and beyond. See our feature on Totally Thames for further details.

Once a bustling trade route bringing foreign trade to the city, it's now more commonly used for recreational purposes and the non-conformist commmuter. More about River Thames
