- This exceptional walk begins near the very end of the Thames Path in London's rural 'Green Belt'. No, the path doesn't finish at the Thames Barrier!
- Such a distance demands the ability to consistently maintain average walking pace. In return you will receive the almost magical experience of seeing the great river flow from salt water estuary to the heart of urbanity. The contrast really is exceptional for we'll begin by Dartford Creek, famed for its birdlife and with barely a building in sight. Then the pre-esturine river, fringed by salt-loving flora and onto the post-industrial landscape of Woolwich and Charlton. Very gradually the office blocks of central London come into view with an ever improving sunset behind them. We finish besides one of the most famed examples of the built environment on the planet, Wren's magnificent work at Greenwich.
- The start is timed to allow for a walk without rush but there may not be time for a fixed lunch break so, please bring food to eat on the way. The walk leader has a lifetime's experience of walking besides London's river and will be delighted to share his most extensive knowledge. Feel free to contact him, Ian Bull, for further information.

- This walk is suitable for wheelchair users but note that due to loose, sharp, stone surfacing robust and reliable tyres are a necessity.
