Welcome to the Thames Visitor Moorings Website


Managing Visitor Moorings on the Non Tidal Thames for boaters by boaters

This website is where you can register your arrival and pay mooring fees, if appropriate, at many of the Visitor Moorings on the Thames.

We also provide information not just about the moorings, locks, bridges and faciliities 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 have developed this online system in conjunction with mooring owners (principally the Environment Agency) to make the process simpler.

In the interests of all those who use the river we will be visiting the moorings regularly to ensure this new system runs smoothly and to have friendly face to face contact.

Not all visitor moorings on the Thames are managed by us however we would like to publish information on as many as possible.  As you can imagine, developing such a comprehensive guide will always be a work in progress so please let us know of any moorings or useful information which should be included. 

We also hope more landowners will make use of our service which will create continuity along the whole river.  We believe consistent management will encourage other landowners to make their land available for moorings.
