About New London Connecticut

New London is a seaport city and a port of entry on the northeast coast of the United States. It is located at the mouth of the Thames River (pronounced as to rhyme with 'James', unlike the river of the same name in London, the capital of England, which is pronounced to rhyme with 'hems') in New London County, southeastern Connecticut.

The city is home to Connecticut College, Mitchell College, the United States Coast Guard Academy, and The Williams School. New London Harbor is home port to the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Chinook and the Coast Guard's tall ship Eagle.

Founded in 1646 the city has celebrated over 350 years of history and proudly looks forward to its future. We invite you to visit our unique shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions, relax on the beach or simply soak up the maritime atmosphere as you take a self-guided walking tour along our historic streets lined with 18th and 19th century buildings.
