Staines-upon-Thames is an urban, modern town today but until manmade structures were built to impede the river's flow downstream it was the upper limit of the tidal reach. Just beyond is Penton Hook, the most impressive loop along the river, where it's well worth making a trip across the lock to explore the tranquil wooded island.

Teddington to Putney The south bank route is The Thames Path offers a choice of walking routes either side of the river from Teddington footbridge as far as Island Gardens on the Isle of Dogs opposite Greenwich.
This allows you to design walks that stick to just one side of the river, using the excellent public transport system in London to get back to your start, or circular walks that cross from one bank to the other using the many bridges. Along this stretch there are 8 bridges where you can cross the river.
Maps and route directions can be downloaded from Transport for London's website. If you stay on the south bank you're bound be surprised at how rural it feels, and the north bank too has several lengthy green stretches. Whichever route you take, if you have the time, there's an enormous amount to see and visit. On the south bank your walk takes you past an amazing succession of parks, fields and gardens including the nature reserve of Hamlands, cattle-grazed Petersham Meadows just below Richmond, Richmond's famous Old Deer Park and Kew's even more famous Royal Botanic Gardens.
To pick just a few of the other things to enjoy, why not explore the spectacular 17th century Ham House, the lovely town of Richmond, pretty Barnes, or the Wetlands Centre just beyond, 40 hectares of wetlands so amazingly close to the centre of a major city. And, of course, you'll have great views of all the greenery on the opposite side of the river!
The room filled up with light. What separates a happy person from an unhappy person is an open heart; and the heart, delicate and quite beautiful, is also like a flower that needs a seed, roots and a means of receiving nourishment.

Putney to Tower Bridge The south bank route is Along this section there are an unequalled 16 bridges giving numerous opportunities to design short or long walks that explore some of the fascinating locations, attractions and history found along the river in the centre of London.
On the south bank the walk starts in Wandsworth where there have been huge changes to the riverfront in the last 10 years. Much development has taken place providing wide, modern promenades for walkers alongside the river. Further developments have started, or are planned, but until they are complete the Thames Path in places has to divert away from the river.
Battersea Park provides a welcome green space before the Path passes behind the old Power Station and on to the real heart of the city between Vauxhall and Tower bridges.
There's far too much along this stretch to list here, but some of the treats include: wonderful views of the Houses of Parliament, a chance to see the whole of the city from the London Eye, and a leisurely stroll along the 'South Bank' with all its theatres and galleries to enjoy. On the north bank, after a short detour away from the river and through Hurlingham Park, you soon come to elegant Chelsea, home previously to many famous literary and artistic people.

Places particularly to savour are Rotherhithe, from where the Pilgrim Fathers departed to America in , the substantial inland area of water left at Greenland Docks and lovely Greenwich itself. From Greenwich to the O2 Centre there are still working wharves lining the riverside giving an industrial flavour to the area, and decaying piers or warehouses as a reminder that London once was the busiest port in the world.
Around the O2 Centre a wide walkway next to the river takes you much of the remaining distance to the finish of the Thames Path at the iconic steel hoods of the Thames Barrier that protect London from flooding. The last 10 years have seen great improvements to the route of the Thames Path along the North bank with many developments providing wide, pleasant promenades along the riverside.
The start is lovely with the Path skirting fascinating St Katharine Docks, where frequently tall ships are moored, ahead of Wapping with its several historic pubs, cobbled streets and pleasantly converted warehouses. Before the tall modern buildings at Canary Wharf there's the inland water basins at Shadwell and Limehouse to enjoy and the pleasant green interlude of King Edward Gardens. Your final stretch to Island Gardens is mostly along broad promenades beside modern apartments and once you arrive take time to enjoy the view of the Old Royal Naval College across the wide river.
