You can find rivers all around the UK. The Thames for example is a major river that runs through London. Rivers exist because they drain rainwater, eventually back to the sea. Each river will drain a drainage basin. A drainage basin is defined as an area of land drained by a river and its tributaries. As the UK has relatively high rainfall, there are many rivers in the country.
