Type: Walking Tour
The Thames Path National Trail is a wonderful way to explore the River Thames. This long distance walking route starts at the source of the river in a field in the Cotswolds and follows the banks of the Thames for 184 miles (294km) through several rural counties before entering the City of London and finishing at the Thames Barrier in Greenwich.
On its way the Trail passes through peaceful water meadows rich in wildlife, historic towns and cities such as Oxford, Henley and Windsor, many lovely villages and some of the best known landmarks of London.
Most of the Trail is easily reached by public transport and can be enjoyed in many ways such as for an afternoon's stroll, a weekend's break or a full scale, but relatively gentle, trek of its whole length.
