Thames Baths proposes the reintroduction of swimming in the River Thames. The proposals look to re-establish an intimate and playful link between Londoners and this historic lifeblood of the city. 
Our vision is to inspire people in cities around the world to reclaim their rivers for swimming and increased public use.
We aim to launch a series of natural swimming baths which can be replicated and licensed in cities across the UK and worldwide, enabling people to enjoy swimming safely in their own rivers.
