About Us

Thames Travel was established in 1983 when founders John and Constance Green using their years of travel experience opened a high street independent travel agency in the heart of East Twickenham.

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!

Fast forward to now, their middle son Christian & his wife Claire proudly run the family business, having met at University studying a degree in Travel, which was followed by a year backpacking around the world. 

With a team of exceptional travel advisors, Thames Travel continues to grow through fantastic client referrals and recommendations and regularly wins prestigious industry awards and accolades.

Get in touch and let us help you plan your next adventure!
