LBC Studio


I know it has frozen in the past, but how cold does it have to be for the Thames to freeze over?

Simon, Oxford Street



Name: Nick, Beckenham 

Qualification: None, just heard it somewhere. 

Answer: It wouldn’t freeze over now. The reason why it used to freeze over in Victorian times is because the bridges before they were all rebuilt had narrow arches that caused the river to freeze over, so much so that they would have parties and fires on the Thames.
