About Thames Barrier
The Thames Barrier is one of the largest movable flood barriers in the word, ran and maintained by The Environment Agency. It spans 520 metres across the River Thames near Woolwich and protects 125 square kilometres of central London from flooding. It has 10 steel gates that can be raised into position across the River Thames. Once a year they test the barrier at high spring tide which is not a sight to be missed.
