The River Thames flows through southern England for some 215 miles, from its source near Kemble until it reaches the North Sea near Southend. It runs through tranquil farmland and countryside, the rolling Cotswold Hills, passes through historic towns and cities such as Oxford and Windsor and on to London, the thriving city it helped to create. The last century has seen commercial traffic replaced by leisure craft with numerous marinas dotted along its length, as well as rowing and sailing clubs. The Thames Path National Trail follows the river from its source to the Thames Barrier offering pleasant riverside walks.
