Thames Path

There are several national trail walks which lie on the banks of the River Thames, one of which is the Barnes Bridge to Embankment route.

Following the Thames east of Barnes Bridge, this walk takes in the sights of the Tate Britain, Houses of Parliament, and the London Eye.

Time of walk - 2 and a half hours.

Hampstead Heath

With so many breathtaking views to discover, a walk through Hampstead Heath from top to bottom is well worth your time.
