Thames Path Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of the Thames Path accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details. Please refer to the Thames Path Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for places visited along the route. By clicking on any location, the Ordnance Survey map for that location can be opened and dragged (and re-sized) to follow the route of the Path.
The Thames Path is a 184 mile long-distance footpath which follows the river from its source in Gloucestershire to the Thames Barrier in Charlton, South-East London. From Teddington Lock in Middlesex to Greenwich there is the option of walking either the north or south bank of the river.
As might be expected, it is an undemanding route in terms of hills (none, really), and there is a wealth of Thames Path accommodation, pubs and restaurants.

Notes on Thames Path Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Thames Path Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info.
NOTE: We have only listed Thames Path accommodation and other services from the source of the Thames Path to Teddington Lock (151¾ miles). After Teddington Lock there is an overwhelming selection of services and options. But also, the path after the Lock is not our idea of countryside walking. We will add Thames Path accommodation and other services from Teddington Lock to Charlton by recommendation.
We display a wide range of Thames Path accommodation type, e.g. B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Thames Path accommodation recommendations.
Thames Path Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the , whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
