The Thames Path route covers both the north and south banks of the River Thames and offers walkers lots of things to see and do. The full length of the Thames Path is 79.5 miles (128km) but you can tackle it in chunks if you don’t fancy walking it all in one go. Follow the Thames Path National Trail symbols and the Thames Barge Symbol way-markers and take in royal palaces, historic landmarks, open spaces and plenty of places to eat and drink.

This walk is three miles (as the crow flies) but the winding walk will take around three hours to complete, but probably longer as you’ll want to stop and enjoy the wonderful views and artworks.
