Discover ‘liquid history’ from source to sea

As it winds its way a little over 200 miles from rural source to open sea, the royal River Thames passes through spectacular scenery, ancient towns and villages and, of course, the UK’s majestic capital city, where iconic monuments are reflected in its waters. This collection of walks along the Thames Path trail, ranging from 3 to 8 miles in length, reveals literary and artistic inspiration, quintessential English landscapes and historical tales galore.

Tour highlights:

  • Discover the landscapes and riverscapes which inspired Wind in the Willows, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Three Men in Boat, and works of art by JMW Turner, William Morris and Stanley Spencer
  • Appreciate grand cities including Oxford, Windsor and London from a riverside perspective
  • Absorb the enthralling history of the river, from Roman settlements to the last line of wartime defence
