Gallions Reach (1927) is a novel by H.M.Tomlinson first published by Heinemann in the UK and by Harper & Brothers in the US. It was republished by Penguin Books in 1952. It is a literary crime novel, initially set in London, in which Tomlinson uses real streets and locations for settings.

The protagonist, Jimmy Colet, commits a serious crime near the start of the novel, and, despite originally intending to give himself up, leaves London by ship soon afterwards.

Tomlinson uses the stream-of-consciousness technique throughout the novel.

Henry Major Tomlinson (21 June 1873 – 5 February 1958) was a British writer and journalist. He was known for anti-war and travel writing, novels and short stories, especially of life at sea. He was born and died in London.
