Thames Path West - The Cotswolds (8 Days & 7 Nights)

  • Walk the Thames Path West through the Cotswolds into the city of Oxford
  • Tranquil landscapes of meadows, fields, woodlands and river banks
  • Follow the Thames as it turns from a stream to a wide river
  • Finish your walk in Oxford, one of the world’s most famous university cities
  • Walk through the Cotswolds an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Walk England’s Thames Path West through the Cotswolds, where it originates, into one of the world’s most historic university cities, Oxford. On this stretch of the Thames Path, a National Trail, you will experience classically British rural landscapes; meadows, woodland and unspoilt villages, some of which display the honey-coloured stone atypical of the Cotswolds. As John Elliott Burns (1858-1943) said, “The Thames is liquid history”. It has inspired authors, poets and painters alike and you can contemplate life and relax whilst walking through serene countryside enjoying lunches in cosy pubs.
