Thames & Chilterns Walk

Walks from Henley-on-Thames along the Thames Path National Trail with options to visit Hambleden village and then return to Henley via Aston. Great views of the Chiltern Hills and Thames Valley. Look out for wildlife such as red kites, buzzards and deer. Historic features abound along the walk routes including Fawley Court, Hambleden Mill and Lock, Temple Island in the Thames and the picturesque village of Hambleden which has featured in many TV programmes and films. There are also fantastic pubs at Hambleden and Aston. From Easter to October you can take a boat with Hobbs & Sons part of the way and walk back.

A children's quiz has been developed for the Hambleden part of this walk. There are fun questions for children to answer as they go round the route, about what they can see.
