By Leigh Hatts
Map of the 182 mile (290km) Thames Path National Trail, from the Woolwich Foot Tunnel in London 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.
SeasonsThe 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.
CentresGreenwich, Southwark opposite St Paul's Cathedral in central London, Richmond-upon-Thames, Windsor, Henley, Reading, Abingdon, Oxford, Lechlade and Cricklade.
DifficultyThe 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 SeeTakes the walker from the Woolwich Foot Tunnel 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.
