A guest post by Totally Thames Festival Director Adrian Evans

Throughout September, Totally Thames festival celebrates the River Thames with a 30-day programme of river-inspired events, including colourful regattas, river rallies and community festivals. Totally Thames Festival director Adrian Evans shares his top five must-do River Thames experiences:

1. Walk the towpath between the lush riverside villages of Kew and Richmond.

3. Take a ride over the River Thames on the Emirates air line, London’s cable car. During the 10-minute journey, you’ll be treated to eye-popping views of East London as you travel between Greenwich Peninsula and the Royal Docks.
