The Thames Sensation

The Thames Sensation is an annual celebration of the River Thames with a creative and diverse programme that inspires, connects and enthrals.

A Thames experience like no other - immerse yourself in the sights, aromas, tastes, textures and sounds of London's bygone eras in this multi-sensory festival designed by the award-winning House of Gastrophonic.

The Northbank BID presents The Thames SENSEation, a multi-sensory festival designed by the award winning House of Gastrophonic giving Londoners and visitors alike the chance to experience a sensory history of the River Thames via touch, sight, aroma, sound and taste.

For centuries many of London's street names have reflected the city's sensory heritage - Bread Street, Corn Hill, Saffron Hill, Camomile Street, Leather Lane, Silk Street – and the River Thames has been the gateway through which countless of these new tastes, aromas and textures have arrived to influence and enrich London's life.
