I’m doing the A to Z Challenge in April, using the theme of the UK & Ireland. As I mentioned in my post on the Hungerford Bridge, I love being in a city with a prominent river. In London, that’s the Thames, beginning with the letter ‘T’.
The best way to experience a river, of course, is by boat. We took that opportunity on the day that we visited Greenwich.
Walking along the Thames is a treat, too. Both sides of the river, in the area of London that tourists visit, have been developed to invite walking. I think I could enjoy a trip to London even if I never did anything but walk along the Thames with a camera.
My favorite books that feature the Thames:
- London by Edward Rutherfurd
- A Dark and Twisted Tide, the fourth book in the Lacey Flint series by Sharon Bolton. In that book, policewoman Lacey Flint spends her time in and around the Thames, solving a mystery with international implications.
Are there other books that prominently feature the Thames?
