September is a month full of festivals and excitement in the city of London! The weather is perfect, families are still on holiday and the mood is just right.
The River Thames has always been an iconic part of London and the UK and that is why the people of London decide to cherish and celebrate it once in a year. They organize a month-long festival called Totally Thames and it's held along the 42 - mile river stretch throughout the city.
Not only will you find the entire city enjoying the festival, but also get opportunities to experience unique art installations, free exhibitions, and live performances!
