Gallions Reach is a stretch of the River Thames between Woolwich and Thamesmead. There are various locations on both sides of the river named after Gallions Reach. The area is named for the Galyons, a 14th-century family who owned property along this stretch of the river.
South of the Thames in the London Borough of Greenwich, Gallions Hill is an area between the river and Western Way, close to Thamesmead town centre.
There is a proposal for a river crossing at Gallions Reach.
