Book Description

9 May 2013
The River Thames is an often undiscovered haven of stunning scenery, wonderful wildlife and brilliant natural beauty. As well as the famous stretches passing through our biggest cities and towns, there is a hidden side to the river - wild and natural, but surprisingly accessible. This guidebook, compiled by the two major Thames charities, contains a wealth of information on over 150 of the best places to explore the real Thames wilderness, along with 10 circular walks taking in the most attractive and interesting parts of the river.

Organised geographically, the book provides information on the history and character of each stretch of the river and the featured sites within it. Illustrated with maps and photos, the text highlights which plants and wildlife to watch out for, activities you can do, how to get there and nearby moorings, cycle paths and car parks. Each section features a circular walk, tying together several of the sites and accompanied by an attractive hand-drawn map.

An essential source of ideas for days out and handy for on the go, Exploring the Thames Wilderness opens up the beauty of the Thames to everyone.

This book has been carefully researched and provides the reader with a wealth of information about the natural world that borders the river Thames.
We are so lucky to have this beautiful river with its riverside paths and nature reserves. For the first time we have all the information on travel, opening times, cafes, etc. in one place. The descriptions of the sites are clear and informative and the guided walks are excellent.
For anyone who wants to explore our wonderful river this this a must have book! See also [...].
