Thames path circular from Embankment tube

This is a 4.5 mile circular walk from Embankment tube walking along the Thames Bankside, passing 8 bridges and viewing the stalls along the Southbank. I'm estimating the walk should be finished about 3.30pm as twilight arrives and we can see the Christmas lights along the banks.

Westminter bridge and parts of Southbank maybe crowded. If you lose the group, cross Westminster bridge to Southbank, we regroup at Royal Festival Hall cafe for 15mins for toilet/cafe/pit stop. after that we keep going straight till we get to London Bridge (7 bridges down), cross over to north bank and walk till Embankment tube.

Start of the walk is outside Embankment tube, Villiers Street entrance at 1pm. Charing Cross tube and rail are at the top of Villiers street, as is Trafalgar square and various bus stops, so there should be plenty of transport options for this walk whatever disruptions TfL are planning over the holidays!

    A bit mad on Westminster Bridge due to the crowds but an enjoyable walk for this first-timer

    Sorry i didn't make it. I got lost in Hyde park ( how lame is that) and pulled a muscle rushing to make the time. Hope you all enjoyed it and see you another time.

    Hi Tania,
    I missed you by minutes and tried to follow to find the group but unfortunately did not track you down. I still had a nice walk and by the sound of it so did you :)

      Hi Ulli, we regrouped at Royal Festival Hall cafe as per description. So sorry you missed us.

  • Andy F.

    Also missed you by a few minutes. Decided to carry on solo. Up to Tower Bridge and back along the South Bank to Westminster Bridge. Tania, any chance you could change you prompt departure policy as I was unavoidably delayed and there are always a few late comers that miss the walk?
    Anyway, it sounds like you had a great walk. Regards, Andy

      Hi Andy, we had a re-group point at Royal Festival Hall cafe at 1.30pm. Picked up latecomers there. Sorry you missed the walk. We went quite slowly because of the crazy level of crowds on the Southbank yesterday. So sorry you missed it.

    There are several steps on this walk where we cross two bridges and a couple of slopes. Other than that it's a flat 2hr walk. Please make sure you can manage that. My number is 07973570043. See you tomorrow!

      For latecomers, we should be at Royal Festival Hall 1.20- 1.30pm at the cafe. Just cross the Hungerford bridge at Embankment tube. Royal Festival Hall is across the river from Embankment tube.
