Walking the Thames Path from Pangbourne to Goring
Antoinette Earl, 39, tells us about a beautiful walk she took with her partner along the River Thames from Pangbourne to Goring.
Please tell us what you did on your trip?
Walked the Thames Path from Pangbourne to Goring, stopping for lunch and a cup of tea on the way.
Where and when did you do your trip?
On this occasion late September, but we do this walk regularly.
What did you like best about your trip?
The beautiful scenery at Goring Gap by Gatehampton bridge. The view of the mansion house, and then Lardon chase (Streatley Hill) as you round the river bend just downstream from Goring Lock, is fantastic, especially when there is a good sunset.
Goring lock is good for a sit down, a cup of tea, and watching the river boats going through the lock.
Also, you can do a one-way trip and come back by the local train if you want, and for a day out it costs very little money! There are train stations close to the River at both Goring and Pangbourne, making the trip easily accessible for all.
How much did your trip cost?
About £10 for lunch, ice creams and teas.
If you used any business or visited any attractions during your trip please let us know what you thought of them?
We bought some packed lunch from a small supermarket in Pangbourne, very cheap and good service. We also purchased ice creams and a cup of tea at the lock keeper's kiosk at Goring Lock, again good prices and service.
