So far, I've only done a third. From Thames Head to Oxford. 90km in three days. It starts out *very* rural, and the closer you get to London, the more urban it becomes. The bit between Thames Head and Cricklade, as well as between Newbridge...More

Although flat and navigationally generally undemanding this walk does have its challenges. The parts through the cities and large towns on the route are obviously interesting and full of opportunities to visit places like Hampton Court, The Stanley Spencer Museum in Cookham, the Rowing Museum...More

Clean, tidy. Good service. Reasonable. Food rather bland. Had Pad Thai without chills. Would visit again but try other dishes.

I can’t recommend the Thames Path Walk from the source to the Thames Barrier highly enough. It is a brilliant walking adventure on mainly flat terrain. You definitely need a map. The Adventures series “A-Z Thames Path for walkers” is excellent. The official guide books...More

We completed the 184 miles over several holidays, staying in our touring caravan at Burford, Henley & Denham, and hotels at Staines & Witney. Staines was great for transport links to central London and covering all that area of the river. It was great as...More

A group of us walked a section of the Thames Path west of the Maybush Inn last week. The weather was dry, and the path was in reasonable condition. We met very few other walkers, and this section of the Thames is quite remote and...More
