The Thames Path towpath route officially opened as a National Trail in 1996, and has been improved by the addition of footbridges and the creation of 20 miles of riverside path. More than 90% of the Thames Path is either public footpath or bridleway.

The river Thames, once an important water highway, links a string of historic sites. In the capital there is Greenwich, the Houses of Parliament and Lambeth Palace. Hampton Court Palace lies just outside London, and before reaching Windsor there is riverside Runneymede where King John agreed to the Magna Carta.

An easy riverside trail, the Thames Path uses roads, tracks and paths, climbing very gently from sea to source, with only occasional slopes.
