Can you swim in the Thames in London?
Swimming in the Thames in this central section isprohibited so a series of pools is the best option. It wouldbe dangerous to swim in such a busy stretch of theriver where tides and currents are strong. Access to theriver in places like this, in London, and further outwest is pretty good.
