Rowing down the Thames has been rated as one of the world’s great experiences by the Lonely Planet travel guides.

It joins a list which includes climbing Everest,  rafting down the Amazon,  tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda and diving with sharks in South Africa.

The Lonely Planet Great Adventures guide describes rowing the Thames as ‘like sitting on a conveyor belt watching living history pass you by on both banks.’

It continues: ‘It’s a gallery of architectural evolution, meandering majestically through rural and city life, allowing you time to reflect on the meaning of all the bustling hustle onshore.’

The book described itself as a "showcase of the world’s most thrilling adventures [which] takes you by boot, pedal or paddle to awe-inspiring natural spectacles and on adrenalin-charged feats of endeavour.“
