Highlights and product description overview
- Escape from London and experience for a few days walking on this four centre inn-to-inn, self-guided walking tour through the gentle countryside alongside the river Thames.
- This 4 night walking tour allows you to indulge your passions of an english university town, the famed real ales of Inspector Morse, the magical story by Lewis Carroll and a walk through the countryside. You follow the well-marked Thames path as it meanders towards the capital city of London. We arrange your rail travel to the start and from the end of the walk and transport your luggage between your pre-booked overnight accommodations. We will provide the trail guide, a trail map and notes on how to find the accommodation. You stop for four nights in inns, farmhouses and guesthouses, where accommodation is available in twin, double or single rooms all with en-suite facilities. Evening meals are available at nearby pubs or inns (not included). Lunch along the trail can usually be found in a convenient riverside pub or from a village shop. We can arrange extra nights in Oxford if you wish to explore this more.
- The national Thames Path follows the river throughout its length. It begins at the Thames River source near Cirencester in Gloucestershire, England. Along its way it passes through water meadows, historic towns and villages and finishes at the heart of London by the Thames Barrier. The Countryside Commissions acorn signposts lead the walker through tranquil water meadows, past the dreaming spires of Oxford, quaint thatched roof villages and the pageantry of the Henley Regatta, Windsor and Hampton Court, through the heart of the capital past Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and Tower Bridge to London’s docklands and beyond to Greenwich village.
