Description

The official guide to the riverside path from its Gloucestershire source all the way to the outskirts of London.

With the London Thames now covered by Aurum' s separate new guide, a companion volume can concentrate on the appeal of the full 150 miles of the country Thames, which winds all the way from its Gloucestershire source near Cirencester to Hampton Court on the edge of the London conurbation.

This new edition has a wealth of new information about the many sights and places of interest along the way, from Wittenham Clumps that Paul Nash used to paint to Heston Blumenthal' s Fat Duck restaurant at Bray, as well as full walking tours of historic Oxford and Windsor & Eton. There are sections on Stanley Spencer at Cookham, and Cliveden and the Cliveden Set, as well as on handsome and interesting towns like Henley and Abingdon. There is also a new section on the wildlife and natural history of the Thames, and plenty of extra information on transport links to and from individual sections.
