of London), a navigable river. The river has had a major influence on
the development of the city. London began on the Thames' north
bank and for a long time the main focus of the city remained on the
north side of the Thames. For many centuries London Bridge was
the only bridge in or close to the city. When more bridges were built
in the 18th century, the city expanded in all directions as the mostly
flat or gently rolling countryside presented no obstacle to growth.

Thames is the river of London!
The River Thames is by far the largest river of the London area, flowing west to east
across the London Basin. It is rather larger than would be expected if it only drained
the basin, since its headwaters cut into the London basin through the Goring Gap and
also drain parts of theCotswolds and Vale of Aylesbury. Similarly tributaries such as
the Mole cut through the North Downs into the basin from the south. Further
downstream the flow of the Thames is boosted by springs which open onto the
riverbed where this is on chalk
