Although most of the time you will see the tourist cruise boats sailing this tidal river, you may also see some cargo vessels transporting heavy items by river instead of road. The Thames must have been a fascinating place for boat transportation before road deliveries took over.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
