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.

2. Soak up the view of the Thames Barrier, which spans 520 metres across the Thames at Woolwich Reach. Then take a stroll around the picture-pretty Thames Barrier Park.
