Learn more about Thames Valley
The Thames Valley generally implies the region that drains into the River Thames, England (the Thames catchment), from West of Cirencester to London but is used in a more specific term by the government.
In its more specific sense, as used in the name of Thames Valley Police, it refers to the areas of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. This area has had a single police force since 1968, and in 1999 acquired a single magistrates' court committee, as a merger of the previous Buckinghamshire and Berkshire & Oxfordshire committees. 
There is also a Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce that covers this area, a Thames Valley Business Partnership and a Thames Valley University.
The area is covered by a single Britain in Bloom region called Thames and Chilterns; this term is also promoted as a tourist destination.
