Thames Lock is the western junction between the Grand Union Canal and the tidal River Thames at Brentford.
There is a lot to see and do at Thames Lock. The picturesque riverside walks are a must, and there are lots of other places to visit including Brentford Marina, the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew and the Kew Bridge Steam Museum.

Just a few steps from the gates of Kew Gardens, The Botanist lives up to its nature-loving name with easy access to scenic walks and local events.
One of the closest pubs to Kew’s Royal Botanical Gardens, The Tap is the ideal place to round off your day of outdoor exploration, with a café-style terrace at the front of the pub that proves a blissful sun-trap in the summer.
Licensed as The Bell & Crown back in 1787, this historic London pub likely dates back much further still. We are proud of our heritage and continue to deliver good old fashioned service.
