Thames Tow Path and the Boat Race Walk
Anyone who visits London will know that the Thames is the liquid heart of the captial. It runs all the way through the city, and makes for the most agreeable mode of transport. There's very little congestion, road rage is almost unheard of here and apart from the dog-walkers and rowing eights you pretty much have the place for yourself.
In this first instalment I'll show you one of my favourite walks that takes you along the route of the famous Oxbridge Boat Race. We start close by William Hogarth's old house in Chiswick, and take the tow path down to Barnes Bridge where we cross to the Surrey shore and walk up to Hammersmith Bridge to cross back to the Middlesex shore taking in a few historical pubs for an al fresco snifter as the river runs by.
Do please come and join my dog, Maxi, and me as we take one of our favourite walks:
