River Thames

The Thames has been England's main commercial artery from the Roman invasion to the 1950's.  The river has many famous buildings and landmarks on its banks, including Parliament, the reconstructed Elizabethan Globe Theater, royal palaces, multi-storied bridges, and decommissioned power stations.  The Thames is now London's major leisure-time activity with the banks being home to numerous pubs, parks, commuters, and tourists sailing the river.  Passenger boat services cover about 30 miles of the Thames, from Hampton Court to the Thames Barrier.  The most popular section runs through the midsection of the city from Westminster Bridge (near Parliament) to the Tower Bridge.
