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

We have previously walked the north bank Greenwich to Westminster which is a cracking walk along the river. This visit we did Putney Bridge to Westminster on the South Bank, We also invested (well worth it) in the National Trail Guide - Thames Path cost £12.99 before our visit. This is of great value as it has detailed maps on... More

we walked the section from Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf and it was super. Lots to see, and very good if you have done a little history 'homework' beforehand.

The Thames is fascinating in its early stages, bearing in mind how large it is by the time it reaches London. The trail in Oxfordshire is however tricky to follow at times, and sometimes has to leave the river bank for quite some way.Also transport between starting and finishing points can be quite awkward. having said that, it is still...
