Thames Path Central - Oxford to Windsor (11 Days & 10 Nights)

  • Follow the Thames Path from Oxford to Windsor, home to the royal palace
  • Pass through the eye-catching and typically English village of Sonning
  • Reach Marlow, the town where Mary Shelley penned Frankenstein
  • Wander through the university city of Oxford, admiring its fine architecture
  • Walk through the Chiltern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Follow riverside trails on England’s Thames Path, a National Trail, from the university city of Oxford to Windsor. 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 the serene countryside and to areas of great historic significance, including the city of Oxford and the royal palace of Windsor, the official residence of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Wander through idyllic English villages, such as Sonning, Bourne End and Goring. Pause in the local pub for a local brew and perhaps a Ploughman’s Lunch with hearty bread, cheeses, pickled onions, and cold meats.
