Pubs on Riverside walks in London
The Thames Path
The Thames Path is a National Trail following the River Thames from its source near Kemble in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier at Charlton, south east London. It is about 184 miles long. A path was first proposed in 1948 but it only opened in 1996.
Since the path is so long, it’s best to do this walk by splitting it up into small chunks. One great stretch is from Chiswick to Fulham Reach.
The Anglers, Teddington Lock and Ham House Walk
The walk is a 3.5-mile loop trail located near Richmond upon Thames, London, England that features a lake and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running.
