About The Book
The Thames is unique, emerging as a small stream in idyllic countryside and growing to the country’s largest river, passing through some of the world’s most iconic urban environments. Linking London to the countryside and the sea, the Thames is the heart of the capital and its waters the lifeblood of England.
This beautiful book celebrates the entire river from source to sea, and with wonderful photography and quirky text follows it on a voyage through Britain’s history, as its path joins landmarks of the past with the urban landscape of today. London has so often been the beginning and the end of the Thames story, and whilst it forms a major part, this book gives an altogether more complete and unexpected view of one of the most famous, remarkable and well-loved rivers in the world. We see the famous views and also learn lesser-known facts, such as Dick Turpin’s secret hideaway (complete with an underground stable for Black Bess), the home of the notorious Chancellor Sir Francis Dashwood (the only Chancellor to have delivered his budget speech drunk) and the scene of the Monty Python fish-slapping dance.
First published in 2007, this gorgeous coffee table book has been updated for its second edition with new text and photography, and continues to be the perfect gift for anyone living near, visiting or enjoying this magnificent river, with its visual variety, hidden secrets and fascinating history.
