About Us

Thames Travel was established in the winter of 1982 when founders John and Constance Green using their years of travel experience opened a high street independent travel agency that still stands in the same place today.

Creating a bespoke travel service for the local Richmond and Twickenham area, Thames Travel soon gained a loyal following, many of who plus their children and grandchildren remain avid clients to this day! In the early days John and Constance had three small children who quickly learned to love the world of travel and the opportunity to visit new and exciting destinations. 

Fast forward 15 years, their middle son Christian joined the family business after achieving a travel degree from Brighton University, followed by a year back-packing around the world. 

Christian is now the Managing Director and runs the business along with his wife Claire who he met at university also studying a degree in travel. Together with a team of exceptional travel advisors, Thames Travel was recently refurbished, has won many prestigious awards and is going from strength to strength.
