Practical Trailblazer British Walking Guide to the Thames Path National Trail running for 184 miles from the river's source at Thames Head near Kemble, Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier in London.

The path leads from the start of the river in a meadow in the Cotswolds through Oxford, and further historic towns, churches, abbeys and castles including Lechlade, Abingdon, Wallingford, Henley, past Runnymede, the site of the signing of Magna Carta, and Windsor Castle.

Passing by so many ancient sites, this is as much a walk through history as an easy ramble along a river bank. The route through London - particularly along the south bank - remains relatively countrified, at least as far as Putney, from which the approaching sights of Westminster and Tower Bridge offer vistas as impressive as any others along the river's green and scenic upper reaches. Leaving central London, the regenerated dockland areas of East London lure you to your journey's end at the Thames Barrier and the conclusion of a most enjoyable and easy ramble.

Includes

  • 90 large-scale walking maps and 10 town plans.
  • Public transport information showing all access points on the path.
  • Accommodation and places to eat with reviews.
  • 30 colour photos including 4pp colour flower guide.
  • Extra colour mapping - stage maps (one page per stage) and profiles.
  • New guide in the classic Trailblazer style

In many walking guides the reader has to read a route description then try to relate it to the map. Our guides are easier to use because walking directions, tricky junctions, places to stay and eat, points of interest and walking times are all written onto the maps themselves in the places to which they apply.

With their uncluttered clarity, these are not general-purpose maps but fully-edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. Downloadable GPS waypoints also included. The largest scale walking maps available - At just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 31/8 inches to 1 mile) our maps are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops.
