Part of the River Thames freezes over for first time in 60 years

The UK had the coldest temperatures on record for February and a big section of the Thames froze over at Teddington in South West London.

River Thames Frozen London

The frozen section is in the mouth of Teddington Lock where the water flows slower than the rest of the adjoining Thames.

Last time the River Thames have been frozen was during the Britain’s Big Freeze in 1963.

This time this is the result of the bitter chill from the Baltic, with a huge section of the Thames that has frozen over at Teddington, in South West London, during the coldest February night for a quarter of a century, only a couple of days ago.
