About this event

A linear walk generally following the towpath of the River Thames. The route is generally flat, although there will be an uphill climb at the start to take in the glorious views of the river from the top of Richmond Hill. The walk can be cut short at Teddington or Kingston for those unable to complete the planned 8 miles.

The interesting town of Richmond is the start point, where the Thames takes on a more rural feel. From Richmond you pass through Petersham Meadow, past Marble Hill House and Ham House, through quite rural settings to Teddington Lock and Weir which is the point at which the Thames is no longer tidal. From Teddington you continue into the town of Kingston-upon-Thames which has an attractive market place. Finally along the edge of Hampton Court Park to the historic Palace.

Find out deatils of the walk.

Lunch will be taken at the Boaters Inn, Canbury Gardens, Kingston.
