Walk Description:

Our walk starts from Taplow Station and follows an 8 mile route mile via the Thames Path, Dorney Lake and the Jubilee River.  It is an ideal walk for winter as we are on firm surfaces for most of the way and  get the best view of the rivers through the bare branches of the trees.

We will stop for lunch at The Pineapple pub in Dorney which is towards the end of the walk - they have an excellent sandwich menu!

The walk will finish at Taplow Station where we can catch the train back into London.


Key sights

Thames Path through Maidenhead Dorney Lake Jubilee River

Our longer Explorer WALX are open to all, exploring beautiful areas in and around London. Routes are planned with breaks and the opportunity for refreshments but this isn't just a ramble; we'll encourage the good posture and motivation to push yourself as we do in all our WALX.

If you'd like to benefit from using Nordic walking poles, we advise you attend a Learn to Nordic WALX workshop. Walkers without poles or with trekking poles are very welcome.

Monthly Payment clients £10; Pre-paid Credit clients £16 - price adjusted at payment.
