On our doorstep
Whether you’ve got a spare hour or the whole day, there’s loads to do right outside the hotel. We’d recommend leaving the car keys indoors and heading out on foot.
The Thames Path is a 184 miles walking trail that follows our neighbour, the River. It meanders from its source in the Cotswolds through several rural counties and on into the heart of London. The path passes peaceful water meadows rich in wildlife, historic towns and cities and many lovely villages, finishing at the Thames Barrier in Woolwich just a few miles from the sea. We don’t expect you to go the whole way. But we would recommend enjoying the fresh air.
