Banking on the Thames Path



Banking on the Thames Path

Actually the longest riverside walk in Europe. Go explore!

Location: Woolwich, SE18 5NJ

Description: Now the Thames Path is a National Trail footpath running for 180 miles along the banks of the river Thames.

Starting at the Thames Flood Barrier at Woolwich in South East London it runs along the banks of the Thames to Kemble in Gloucestershire. As it follows the banks of the river, the path is flat, making for easy walking and with much of the river being a busy waterway, there is usually plenty of activity to watch.

And here's another thing...it's actually the longest riverside walk in Europe. Go explore!

my friend and I tried some of the Thames Path, we went from Vauxhall Bridge along Grosvenor Road, if it hadnt been for the most wonderful sunset as we were walking west, it would have been very boring indeed, we were nearly trampled to death by runners and bicycles, but I have now discovered the true Thames Path yippee, it will keep us 70 year olds fit in our dottage.!!
