Best Answer

The Thames froze over many times in the 15th - 19th centuries due to the little ice age. It is likely that during that period the Thames froze over most years to a certain degree, especially outside of London and further North. Some years, such as 1683/4, the ice was up to 18'' thick.

When the ice was thick enough, frost fairs took place. Years when the ice was thick enough for this to occur were: 1408, 1435, 1506, 1514, 1537, 1565, 1595, 1608, 1621, 1635, 1649, 1655, 1663, 1666, 1677, 1684, 1695, 1709, 1716, 1740, (1768), 1776, (1785), 1788, 1795, and 1814, which was the last frost fair.

Although the Thames may have frozen slightly since then, with rising global temperatures, the demolishion of London Bridge and the emabankment of the river, it is unlikely it ever happened to any great degree and certainly not in the 20/21st centuries.

When was the last time the river thames froze?

As best as I can tell the last time the Thames froze over was in 1814. The construction of a new London Bridge in 1825 may have helped stop it from freezing as the new one had fewer pillers than the old, allowing the river to flow more freely.
