Marlow Weir


The Thames is at its loveliest as it flows through this pleasant Georgian market town, spanned by an elegant suspension bridge built in 1832.

Visitors enjoy the view from the green spaces of waterside Higginson Park, or the historic Compleat Angler Hotel. The river here is the venue for the annual ceremony of 'Swan Upping' when the new crop of cygnets are identified and tagged by the Queen's Swan Marker, and for the Marlow Town Regatta, held in June. With its prosperous shops, restaurants and bistros, every month in Marlow has a holiday feel.
