Book Description

30 Mar 2008
The Thames is an extraordinary river: linking London to the countryside and the sea, the Thames is the heart of the capital and its waters the lifeblood of England. Following the river is a voyage through Britain's history, as its varied path joins landmarks of the past with the urban landscape of the modern world. This stunning photographic journey offers a unique and comprehensive showcase of the Thames we know ...and the Thames we don't...Derek Pratt's photography gives readers a unique insight into the river's many facets, comparing the rural idylls with the urban landscapes, the industrial buildings with the famous views, the royal landmarks with the river used by people all along its course for daily recreation and famous events. London has so often been the beginning and the end of the Thames story, and whilst it forms a major part, this book gives an altogether more complete and unexpected view of one of the most famous, remarkable and well-loved rivers in the world. With a stylish design, beautiful photography and interesting insights, this gorgeous coffee table book will appeal to a wide range of readers. It will be the perfect gift for anyone living near, visiting or enjoying this magnificent river, with its visual variety, hidden secrets and fascinating history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but confusing 17 Aug 2009
I bought this book for my man who recently kayaked from Cricklade to Tower Bridge as a fundraising event for the RNLI. I travelled by road to and from each start and finish point, so I am became familiar with a lot of the places mentioned. The book is beautifully photographed and put together, with just enough written detail for each location, but I am COMPLETELY confused as to why it finished at Gravesend. All the research we undertook suggests that the official end of the Thames is Southend, so WHY does it end at Gravesend??? Only a minor gripe, but annoying. All the information seems to be factually correct, if not chronologically, and I would not deter a purchase on those grounds alone.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Thames - Book Review 14 Feb 2011
Apart from the corner of the book cover being slightly worn, (a brand new book), the book itself has some lovely images, tracing the River Thames' journey from source to sea. I bought it as a present and the recipient was very happy with it.
