The River Thames (pronounced Tems) is England’s 2nd largest, but most well-known river. It flows from Kemble to the North Sea (on the east side of England) through Oxford and the center of London. In fact it flows right by Big Ben, Westminster Abby and the House of Parliament; and if the London Bridge were to fall, it would fall into the Thames. The Thames is host annually to The Boat Race (est. 1829) between Oxford University Boat Club (headquarters located on the River Thames in Oxford) and the Cambridge University Boat Club.
In Oxford the River Thames flows along the west side of the city through Port Meadow. The Trout Inn and Head of the River Pub are both located directly on the river and there is a path that follows the river from one end of the city to the other. Actually, I think that you can walk along almost the entire length of the river.
The Thames is part of our daily life. We are lucky enough to cross over the Thames everyday on our way to work. This picture does not do the sunset or the river justice. The white bridge in the picture is the Osney Lock (originally built in 1790), it is used daily to raise and lower boats from one section of the river the next.
