About this deal

Tower Bridge Road, London, SE1 3LU [email protected] +44 (0) 20 7357 6655 The GOsC is a charity registered in England and Wales (1172749) Just wanted to say that the distances you have for the first leg are not correct. I suspect Somerford Keynes and Ashton Keynes have got mixed up. Several entries on google relating to the short walk you mentioned. Try this link: https://babyroutes.co.uk/walking-routes/oxfordshire-chiltern-baby-walks/sonning-shiplake-thames-path-stroll/ What I did was that I walked from Thames Barrier till River Darent. From river Darent I walked half an hour and then took a side walk to River Cray and ultimately reached Main road somewhere close to Queen Elizabeth Bridge 2. From there I had two options, either to Walk to Crayford or Slade Green. Both were approximately same distance, so I chose Slade Green. The (far shorter) Thames Path Extension (from the Thames Barrier to Crayford Ness) is shown in this second map Planning an itinerary 180 miles from here to the source of the Thames

Thanks for a really useful article. We are considering biking from Teddington to Waterloo along the Thames Path and then returning to Teddington by train. We work with the public and the osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct. As well as the Thames Path Extension, the Thames Path intersects with a large number of walking trails on its journey. There are too many to list here, but notable trails include the Ridgeway and the London LOOP. At the western end, near the source, the Wysis Way runs for 55 miles/88km and connects with the Offa’s Dyke National Trail at Monmouth, and the Cotswold Way National Trail. The area from Kew Bridge till Hampton Court is so beautiful and scenic. The central area has its own charm. By-the-way, just as well that we started at the source, because the other way around we would probably never finish our walk.

The Thames Path passes many railway stations along its route, meaning its extremely easy to split the route up into several trips. Indeed, if you live in London, or near the Thames, it’s an absolute doddle to walk most of the Thames Path in day hikes. The options are endless. Hi, planning on starting the Thames path with my son, who’s not always the most willing of hikers…… Although the eastern end of the Thames Path National Trail is at the Thames Barrier, you don’t need to end there as the Thames Path Extension carries on another ten miles to Crayford Ness. This is fully waymarked and generally referred to as the Thames Path on signposts, but uses a picture of a Thames Sailing Barge as a logo instead of the National Trail acorn. It is shown on the map above in green. I walk about 10-20km a day, and have done a 35km walk — all in London with lots of people “in the way”, so I’m pretty sure I can do 44km in the country side, starting early and relaxed.

Due to the nature of the trail, wild camping is not generally advised or possible. Under English law you are not legally allowed to wild camp without permission of the landowner. Getting to/from the Thames Path A train sits at Tilehurst station, just metres away from the Thames Path. I’m planning a charity walk taking in around 100 miles of the Thames Path, ideally ending at the Thames Barrier. Once you hit Greater London, the ways of breaking up the Thames Path increase enormously. There are also plenty of tourist-related diversions that you may want to enjoy whilst breaking your walk. Because of this, we have provided distances between locations where there is a nearby railway or London Underground stations, although the whole London section is rarely far from a bus service as well. For added complexity, for most of the London section there are two alternatives – you can walk on the North Bank or the South Bank. In our experience, you’ll have a better time on the South Bank. It stays closer to the river, and has better views. However where the section can be walked on the North Bank, we have included that distance too.These seven routes form the Walk London Network, one of the largest walking networks of any city in the world. These routes are specifically designed to be easily accessible by public transport and you can walk as little or as far as you want by walking them in sections.

Signage was excellent all the way, but beware of some possible tampering at Shillingford between the A4074 and the river. Hello all, I’m walking the path, stage by stage in weekly instalments this year, setting out from my home in Bedfordshire each time. I’m going from east to west and am using the Cicerone guide by Leigh Hatts. I have broken the habit of a lifetime and bought absolutely no maps for these trips because the Cicerone guide includes a separate book of the entire route taken from the OS’s Explorer (1:25,000) maps and so far I’ve had no problems at all with routefinding. I’ve also broken another habit of a lifetime and left my walking boots at home – the ground underfoot has so far really not necessitated robust footwear and I ‘ve been doing it in trainers.It’s difficult to chose a perfect three day stretch, but perhaps the sections between Tilehurst/Reading and Oxford would meet your criteria. It’s quite varied, with lots of interesting scenery and some lovely villages and towns. Would you be able to tell me 1) is this part of the path doable by bike 2) can we take bikes on the train from Waterloo to Teddington? But I think readers should be aware that you can walk the other way! If you know the Thames in London you will want to find the source and have the fun of finding the river becoming more and more narrow.
