From source to Wallingford.Beautiful countryside along the way.Passing the locks the keepers are so friendly and have met some lovely walkers along the way. I am using the official trail guide by David Sharp and Tony Gowers £12.99 .Worth the money, I take pages out I need for my stages to... More

Fabulous walk. Ambled about eight miles at a relaxed pace for about four hours. Saw a clean London. Excellent paths and sometimes diverted on to short stretches of road. Very well marked so you never get lost. Lewisham stretch was a little manky. Superb views across the river to Isle of Dogs, and the City. Attractions en route include Greenwich... More

We have walked stretches of the Thames path before and decided this time to walk from the O2 at North Greenwich to London Bridge. During the early parts there isn't much to see and you are redirected around housing estates and businesses which is very off putting. It's not until you get to the Cutty Sark that the interest is...

We walked from Imperial Wharf to Battersea, crossed the river and along to Albert Bridge, then back via Battersea to Wandsworth Bridge, across and back to Imperial Wharf. There are some lovely little parks and gardens along the route, as well as some very expensive looking apartments. Some of the path isn't along the river but it's well sign posted... More

I know you are not supposed to but I have ridden this trail on my mountain bike from Oxford to Windsor. It is a lovely way to see English countryside and appreciate England away from the crowds. The path varies from well kept paths areas around towns to open fields and forested areas. It is well sign posted and quite... More

Just completed the Thames Path from The Barrier to the source. Day walks as far as Swinford,(just past Oxford) then 3 nights using 1 man tent as getting backwards and forwards to Paddington becomes too difficult . If you are walking solo B&B is expensive. If you don't live in London then, yes, arriving in the capital is very impressive.... More

We walked the stretch between Eynsham and Oxford. You can make this into a round trip by cutting back along the side of Wytham woods. There are loos at either end of this stretch (we started from the Wolvercote car park) and there are also pubs within easy walking distance of either end. The river and surrounding countryside are very... More

We live on a farm. We work in cities. We climb in the mountains. We love long walks. The Thames Path called when twice-a-year work at Heathrow found us. At first it seemed convenient and right to start at the Barrier Dam east of London and march to the source in The Cotswolds. After the first several sections, we decided... More

I walked the upper 100+ miles from the source near Cirencester to Henley-on-Thames, camping overnight along the way. The route is well way-marked and straightforward. As with many national trails it does occasionally dump you on a busy road or round a detour, but these are infrequent. Camping options are regular on the route as are B and B's, although... More
