The book is presented in colour and includes instructions to complete the walk, large scale OS maps, historical information and information on places of interest, pub stops, some brief info on transport, and other useful information. The instructions are broken down in to 8 manageable sections and follow the route west to east. Walking the route east to west is also fine because the way-marking is fairly good - but there are a couple of tricky diversions. Regular walkers will easily manage to complete a couple of the sections of the route in one day.
On certain parts of the walk there is a choice of walking on the north or south side of the river (the north side is longer) - the instructions and OS maps are very clear and easy to follow at all times. There is no need to carry extra maps, mainly because it is signposted fairly well (there's the odd twisted sign) and the OS maps that are included are sufficient - BUT it is safer to have one to hand. it's also handy to be able to see the wider area on the full size maps.
For this route, we found the Thames Path AZ Adventure OS map ( Explorer size) to be a good back-up map - it's in book format and easier than the usual OS maps to deal with.
Hints and Tips - We based ourselves at a hotel near Vauxhall Bridge for the entire walk (rather than stopping at different B&B's along the way), and we found that the Vauxhall Bridge area, especially on the south side of the river, was a convenient place to be. Accommodation is not cheap, although I didn't look that hard for budget digs, but the area is convenient area for a number of reasons. Vauxhall Bridge is a good place for starting and ending a days walk.Read more ›
The book is full of very useful information and explains the routes very clearly. Lots of history to read as well.
We received the book on time and it was packaged well and at a good price too. would definitely recommend it to a friend.
