In the Wake of the Boat Race Historical Walk
from Putney to Barnes via Chiswick

Starting at Putney Bridge, this is a walk almost entirely free of traffic, our route follows the Thames Path both north and south of the river as we explore a world of boat houses and clubs, riverside pubs and striking architecture.

Schedule, Prices & Booking

Having good communications with London from an early time, this part of the capital became a popular country retreat from the 15th Century onwards and as London continued to grow in the late 19th and early 20th centuries then the population of this area significantly expanded.

Unsurprisingly an area which has consistently attracted the ‘great ‘ and the ‘good’, this area boasts former residents as diverse as Gutsav Holst, William Hogarth and William Morris.

This is a pleasant riverside walk with ample opportunity to stop for refreshments and to watch the world go by.

The route takes us past Fuller’s Brewery at Chiswick. If you would like to combine a walk with a tour of the brewery, let us know in plenty of time and we will book a place for you.
