About this deal

Walking on the Thames Path will take you on a journey. Whichever end of the trail you start from, you’ll walk and watch the river change.

I actually live in Southwest London, so alongside the Thames Path, also interestingly enough close to where the London Loop dissects the Thames. However, whilst I love hiking my question is deviating off a little bit, as it is about cycling. In 2012, however, he was deeply inspired by a letter a young but soon-to-be-killed officer called Alexander Douglas Gillespie had sent his parents from the western front. This described his dream of creating a commemorative path after the war, along no man’s land all the way from Switzerland to the Channel. After that, he wrote, he hoped to “send every man and child in Western Europe on pilgrimage along that Via Sacra, so that they might think and learn what war means from the silent witnesses on either side”.

Nadiya Hussain, Elif Shafak, Caleb Azumah Nelson, Lady Hale and more on the best reads of their year. The country section doesn’t have that many sections well worth spending a whole day in, although there are several towns like Abingdon and Henley where an hour or two spent exploring, would be a hugely re-warding experience. I read The Path in one sitting and have been talking about it to everyone. It’s brilliant, mesmerizing, profound—and deeply contrarian. It stands conventional wisdom on its head and points the way to a life of genuine fulfillment and meaning.”

Until recently there was a YHA in Oxford, but this permanently closed in 2021 after being used to house homeless people during the Covid-19 pandemic. Camping Geraldine – there’s no Thames Path signs at Kemble station as the trail doesn’t go there, but if you get a guidebook or map, you’ll find the route easy to follow once you’re there. The book does get a little technical or in-the-weeds at times, but it still articulates things in a way such that even someone who isn’t a financial planner can understand and follow along.

My husband and I have just completed the whole Path in stages during the last 2 months. We took 19 days in all and it’s been one of the most enjoyable and satisfying things we’ve done in a long while.
