The Thames Path Map Booklet

1:25,000 OS Route Map Booklet

By Leigh Hatts

Map of the 180 mile (288km) Thames Path National Trail, from London's Thames Barrier to the river's source near Cirencester in Gloucestershire. This booklet is included with the Cicerone guidebook to the trail, and shows the full route on OS 1:25,000 maps. The easy riverside route takes around two weeks to walk.

Seasons

The River Thames is a constantly changing green corridor. While care must be taken during occasional winter flooding this is an all season walk always offering new rewards and views.

Centres

Greenwich, Southwark opposite St Paul's Cathedral in central London, Richmond-upon-Thames, Windsor, Henley, Reading, Abingdon, Oxford, Lechlade and Cricklade.

Difficulty

The route is described in 20 sections between 4 and 16 miles in length. This is a mainly flat walk with only one steep hill. East of Oxford, and especially in London, the paths are good and usually near public transport. The more challenging sections needing a little planning are upstream of Oxford.

Must See

Takes the walker from the Thames Barrier in London to the source of the river in rural Gloucestershire; passes historic sites such as Greenwich, Kew Gardens, Hampton Court, Runnymede, Windsor Castle and Oxford.
