  • Overview

    All the mapping you need to complete the 180 mile (288km) Thames Path National Trail, from London's Thames Barrier to the river's source in Gloucestershire.

    An accompanying Cicerone guidebook - The Thames Path - describes the full route with lots of other practical and historical information. NOTE: The accompanying guidebook includes a copy of this map booklet.

    Divided into 20 stages, with each stage ranging from 4 to 16 miles, this gentle riverside walk takes roughly two weeks to complete. 

    This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the National Trail, along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend. Conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or top of a rucksack, it comes in a clear PVC sleeve and provides all the mapping needed to complete the trail.

    Passing through London, Windsor and Oxford as well as rural countryside, this National Trail offers walkers a diverse range of landscapes and scenery. With excellent public transport services at each stage, this trail can also be completed in bite-size pieces – why not relish the route over several weekends throughout the year and discover the many moods of the Thames with the passing seasons?
