[STC00726] Although most people connect the River Thames with London, it actually flows through a far larger area than just that city. After the River Severn, the Thames is the second-longest river in the United Kingdom. Its source is in the Cotswolds, and it travels eastward for 205 miles before emptying into the North Sea through the Thames Estuary. Along the route, it travels through the famous university town of Oxford, where it is given a different name and is referred to as the Isis. The river was once known by its old name, which was “Tamesis.” This is where the alternative name comes from. Oxford University’s famous rowing regattas occur on the Isis, including the famous ‘Eights Week,’ in which leading eights attempt to ‘row over’ without being bumped. Freshwater fish, such as crayfish and trout, can often be caught along this stretch of the river, making it a popular spot for anglers to fish.
