In flood-stricken Wraysbury in the Thames Valley, one man has been using an amphibious car to get around.
The Environment Agency has said the level of the River Thames was expected to rise again on Friday, endangering property in Berkshire and Surrey.
Peter Kavanagh took the BBC's science editor David Shukman for a ride to look at the damage.
