A view across the river from the Thames Path

Thames Path Top Hike of the World

24th October 2013

The Thames Path through London has been named as one of the top city hikes in the world in the Lonely Planet Guide:
The section of Thames Path from Kingston eastwards to Greenwich is described in the book as "a London highlights reel, passing Kew Gardens, Battersea Park and power station, Westminster and Big Ben, the Millennium Eye, Shakespeare's Globe and so on".  And adds "Expect surprising contrasts: the leafy emptiness of the riverbank through Richmond and Kew against the chaos of the South bank, where the entire world seems to come to meet," it adds.  We only lost out to the top spot to the Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil..
On your way to our top hike you can also enjoy the London Underground, one of the world's Freakiest Foot Races, according to the same Guide.
