Travel along the length of Britain's longest and most famous river, more than 200 miles from the Cotswolds to the North Sea

Over the years, authors, artists, and amblers aplenty have felt the pull of the Thames, and now travel writer Tom Chesshyre is following in their footsteps. He's walking the length of the river from the Cotswolds to the North Sea—a winding journey of more than 200 miles. Join him for an illuminating stroll past meadows, churches, palaces, country (and council) estates, factories, and dockyards. Seeing some familiar sights through new eyes, and meeting a host of interesting characters along the way, Tom explores the living present and remarkable past of England's longest and most iconic river.
