Walk beside the Thames for 15 miles from Teddington to Chelsea and enjoy wonderful scenery, the river path between Wandsworth Bridge and Battersea Bridge now open all the way. TfL website has details of nearest tube and train stations.

A river,like any other river.The difference is made by the city through which it passes,London,a special town.The river is wide,cloudy,crossed by boats in all directions.But just a river.The real interesting part is on its banks,the things built by men.

thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
