Description

A completely new Trail Guide dedicated to the London section of the Thames Path from Hampton Court to the Thames Barrier, this is the perfect companion for walking the banks of the River Thames.

More than just a map of the area, this complete guide presents all the history along the river, from the Mesolithic Period timber piles near Vauxhall Bridge to the new skyscrapers shooting up in the City. Covering all the folklore from the famous frost fairs to the much-lamented beach near Tower Bridge, not forgetting the poignant visit of a large whale to the centre of London, and winding all the way through London’s history and culture, from Henry VIII’s Hampton Court to the chequered fate of the Millennium Dome, this unique guide will get you fully up to speed with the area as you explore the river path. Whether you are a London resident or visiting tourist, you will discover something new every step of the way.
