The River Thames is the best known river in England due to the fact that it flows through central London. At 215 miles, the Thames is the longest river in England, rising at Thames Head near the village of Kemble in Gloucestershire and then winding slowly eastwards to enter the North Sea at Thames Estuary. The river has been a focus for human activity and habitation for thousands of years and many important towns and cities lie along it's length, including Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Marlow, Maidenhead, Windsor and Eton, Kingston upon Thames, Richmond, London, Dartford and Gravesend. East of Teddington Lock, located near Ham and Richmond, the river is tidal.

Almost all the towns along the Thames have turned the river into a recreational resource and tourist attraction by offering boating trips, cruises and rowing activities. In London, the famous annual University Boat Race takes place between Oxford University and Cambridge University at the end of March, starting at Putney Bridge and ending upriver at Chiswick Bridge. Many local rowing clubs will also hold competitions throughout the year. In early July Henley-on-Thames hosts the Henley Royal Regatta rowing competitions.
