The River Thames is the life blood of London, flowing through the heart of the city like veins run through our own bodies. It seems only fitting that we should celebrate its existence, and that's why is an annual event. Usually the festival only a lasts a weekend, but this year it has been extended to a whopping ten days. So head into London between the 6th-15th September for river walks, river talks, river races, river cruises, river everything.
