The Thames also branches out into many more waterways and canals and has been one of the most significant and fascinating waterways with its historic, social and environmental importance.

Facts
Beginning as a trickle in a Gloucestershire meadow, the River Thames flows for more than 217km (135 miles) though the Cotswolds, Oxford, Henley and Windsor before it reaches London. It is the longest river in England and with a distance of 296km ( 184 miles ) from its source, The Thames Path makes the longest riverside walk in Europe. Home to over 119 species of fish and important wildlife habitats, The Thames River boasts many areas of outstanding natural beauty and is the only river in Europe to have a national trail follows its entire length.
