As a keen walker I found this new guide to be superbly written, with clear maps and beautiful photographs. It is full of fascinating facts and history and it evokes the atmosphere of undiscovered corners of this 50 mile stretch from Hampton Court to Crayford Ness. It is well designed and portable with the walker in mind; the north bank is described on the left page and the south bank on the right, so that the walker can take in the whole view. This is a welcome addition to the guides to London and a timely new guide for visitors to the Olympic Games.

My husband and I referred to this book whilst walking the Thames Path from Hampton Court to the Thames Barrier.
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.

I had walked the Thames path from stem to stern before but Phoebe Clapham's excellent book reveals a host of treasures that I had missed in previous walks. It's practical - the maps are clear and the illustrations are excellent - and the book is handy to carry with you. You really feel that Ms Clapham is walking beside you, guiding the walk and pointing out all the places of interest along the way. The introduction - the history and the arts as well as practical points about cycling, transport links and refreshment - complete an excellent package.

Packed with usefull information, I've had some great walks along the Thames embankment with the book giving interesting information on points of interest. The book is nicely arranged by riverside sections, making it easy to pick a spot from which to start off.

I read some good reviews of this book but (big but) the maps are on a single page in portrait mode so it is rather difficult to follow the route from one page to the next. I prefer landscape maps to avoid constant turning of pages. You might not mind. Hence have a glance first!!

So pleased to have found this book and purchase it as used as we were not sure if we would enjoy the walk. We have now started our Thames path walk it and can't wait each time to go on the next one.
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.

Have only walked Teddington to Putney Bridge on the South Bank so far and you certainly don't need a map as the route is very obvious but where this book is useful is all the facts along the route for both sides of the river - it really added to the route/walk. Had great fun with a nice stop in Barnes for lunch. Felt like walking in the country right up until Putney Bridge. Looking forward to the next leg of our route.
