Information about yacht clubs, rowing clubs, marinas, moorings and other facilities for leisure boaters on the tidal Thames.
Whatever part of the river you visit, it’s important to remember that the Thames should be respected.
If you go on the foreshore:
- Keep an eye on the tides — the river rises and falls seven metres. Download our app for live tidal information.
- Tell someone where you are going and what time you expect to be back. We suggest What Three Words for accurate location information.
- Wear sturdy shoes and be aware that the foreshore can be muddy and expose you to sewage and water-borne illness. There’s more important safety information on our foreshore permits page.
- If you see an emergency on the river, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard. Never go into the water yourself.
