Stories of the colorful characters and remarkable events that took place along the Thames River exemplify the rich and fascinating history of our region.

We’re pleased to be offering FREE guided tours of Downtown New London. Hop aboard the Thames River Heritage Park Water Taxi to ride between tours. You may purchase your tickets on the boat or ahead of time here:

The tours leave from the water taxi docks, City Pier and Fort Trumbull’s Pier, and are led by New London resident Gail B. MacDonald. Gail is a journalism faculty member at the UConn with a depth of local history knowledge. She is a veteran journalist, the author of “Morton F. Plant and the Connecticut Shoreline,” and a second book, “Hidden History of Mystic and Stonington,” which is scheduled for release in spring of 2020.
