European Urban London Walks: Thames river walk Putney to Richmond

  • Apr 12, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join members of the London European Club for an urban walk along the Thames River for the section starting at Putney bridge and ending at Richmond.  

The walk is one section of The Thames Path National Trail that stretches westwards to the source of the River Thames in the Cotswolds, the London section covers a magical 40 miles (64 km) of easy, level walking on both sides of the river from Hampton Court Palace, through the heart of London to the East India Dock on the north bank and the River Darent on the south bank.  We will walk or cycle different sections in the next few months.  All walks will be kept to under 10 miles. 


This is a peaceful and scenic walk.  You’ll see every imaginable waterborne activity along the way, beautiful meadows and pretty villages.  We will pass by Barnes, Kew Gardens before arriving at Richmond on this section.

The pace will be easy going.  The terrains is good except for few stretches that can be a bit muddy , if not from rain then from the river high tide.  I recommend you wear hiking gear and be prepared for rain.

Please bring packed lunch and other snacks, and water  There are places along the route to buy food.  We will have few stops to eat and rest .  We will end the walk at a pub at Richmond for drink and food .  Richmond Tube and Rail stations will be close by for the return trip.

NB. London European Club events are organized by dedicated volunteers who are very busy individuals. Please RSVP only if you are certain that you can attend this event or update your RSVP as soon as your circumstances change.  Canceling on the day of the meet up put me in difficult situation because I confirm the numbers for the restaurant the night before. If you don't show up you will be banned from the Club and you won't be able to enjoy our unique events any more.

    Hi Samir. I've seen no sign of the group so I've started walking toward Richmond from the South side of Putney Bridge. Hopefully the group will catch up shortly.

    Hi all thanks for signing up. I see you on Saturday. Please update you RSVP.

    Please remember to dress for the weather. Although terrance is easy, a good pair of shoes is always advisable. We will stop at a restaurant/pub in Richmond at the end of the walk. There are few at the riverside. You may still need some light lunch/snacks for the walk and some water. If you like to buy any hiking equipment or clothing items then let me know because I have 15% discount codes for Cotswold.

    Thank you for signing up for the Urban walk. I look forward to meeting you.

    Please let me know if it is easier for you to arrive at Putney Rail station on the south side of the river rather than the designated Tube station on the north side. We will arrange a meeting point before we start the walk.
