Welcome to the Thames Visitor Moorings Website


This website is where you can find moorings and other useful information about boating on the Thames.

We provide information not just about the moorings, locks, bridges and facilities essential for boating but also about more general aspects of being on the river.  Our aim is to make your Thames experience relaxing and enjoyable, whether you are new to the river or know it well. Please look at our interactive map and use the filters to find out more.

Finding a Visitor Mooring on the Thames can at times be a challenge.  We would remind you to read the signage on site very carefully to avoid incurring excessive penalties.
