Encyclopedia > Rivers of the United Kingdom

This is a list of rivers of Great Britain. Rivers of England, Scotland and Wales, organised geographically, taken anti-clockwise, from Land's End are included. For Northern Irish rivers see the Rivers of Ireland article. Tributaries are listed down the page in an upstream direction.


For simplicity, they are divided here by the nation in which the mouth of the river can be found, and sea into which it flows.
