Thames Path anniversary weekend

The Thames Path 20th Anniversary Relay Walk has reached London.

This Saturday 23 July 2016 the relay will set out from St George Wharf in Vauxhall at 10.30am to cover the twelve miles to the Thames Barrier.

The party will be passing the great landmarks including Lambeth Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe, St Paul’s Cathedral and Southwark Cathedral.

From the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, the walkers will be replicating the first walk on the opening day in 1996.

The actual anniversary is Sunday 24 July when long distance path author Colin Saunders will lead the sixteenth and final walk downstream from the Thames Barrier to Crayford Marshes.

This is the unofficial but now viable extension as included in Cicerone’s new Thames Path guide published this year.

The guide is available direct from Cicerone at 25% discount and post free until 31 July.
