A completely new Trail Guide dedicated to the London section of the Thames Path from Hampton Court to the Thames Barrier. Until now, Aurum’s popular one-volume Thames Path guide has had all too little room to cover the endlessly rich array of sights and history along its London section †“ something to look at literally every yard of the way. Now, Aurum publishes a completely new walker’s guide just to the London Thames, laid out to its new full-colour Trail Guide design, and including the extension to Crayford . Here is all the history along the river from the Mesolithic Period timber piles near Vauxhall Bridge to the new Shard skyscraper shooting skywards at London Bridge. It covers all the folklore from the famous frost fairs to the much-lamented beach near Tower Bridge, not forgetting the poignant recent visit of a large whale to the centre of London. The Thames winds all the way through London’s history and culture, from Henry VIII’s Hampton Court to the chequered fate of the Dome/O2: the London resident as much as the visiting tourist will find in this guide something new every step of the way.

David Fathers presents a unique and richly illustrated guide to the London section of the Thames Path, which runs along both banks of the river from Putney Bridge to the Thames Barrier. Together, the two paths make up a panoramic 40-mile walk through 2000 years of London's history. From the old docks and wharves that primed the Industrial Revolution, through the heart of British Government, Monarchy and Church to the City of London that took its very existence from the river. From the site of the Putney Debates at St Mary's Church to Wren's mighty baroque cathedral of St Paul's. From the great Victorian engineering works of Sir Joseph Bazalgette and his attempts to clean up a polluted London and the river to the Thames Barrier seeking to protect huge parts of London from rising sea levels. From London Bridge, site of the oldest crossing point, to the Millennium Bridge, the Thames' newest crossing. This book explains the panorama we see today, what came before and how the changes came about. Each double page shows the distance covered so you can plan your own tour of the river.
