Thames map

Taking a cruise on the world's most famous river is like taking a tour through the nation's past. Hardly a mile drifts by without another majestic historic sight coming slowly into view – Hampton Court, Runnymede, Windsor, Eton, Cookham, Marlow, Henley, Abingdon, Oxford... a stately procession of Norman castles, Mediaeval manors, Tudor palaces and Georgian towns. And when you've moored and explored to your heart's content, the chances are that you'll never be far from a delightful riverside pub steeped in tradition, or an excellent restaurant in a splendid setting. Ideal opportunities to make new friends and learn about even more new places to visit.

You will come across locks on the Thames, but they should hold no fears for you. Most are operated for you by the resident lock-keeper. He will guide you in and keep a watchful eye to ensure the passage through is both safe and exhilerating. In the majority of cases, you will be expected to do no more than stand ashore with your mooring lines whilst the water level rises or falls. You will soon find that the "lock experience" is a great way of meeting fellow boaters. Being confined in a lock chamber for ten or so minutes with other boat owners or hirers allows ample opportunity to swap stories or perhaps pass on recommended moorings or watering holes.
