Step 1: Welcome to the Thames Path! This walk follows the south bank of the iconic Thames Path National Trail from Albert Bridge to Tower Bridge.
Step 2: This section begins at Albert Bridge. The closest train station is Battersea Park or Queenstown Road.
Step 3: Buses 156, 344 and 436 stop at Battersea Park station, if you’re getting public transport to the start of this walk.
Step 4: From Albert Bridge, take a small pedestrian gate into Battersea Park and head towards the river, walking with the Thames on your left.
Step 5: Head along the riverside walkway and follow it straight along the river, with the park to your right.
Step 6: Battersea Park’s 200 acres are well worth exploring. Some consider it to be the most interesting of all the London Parks. The carriage drives, lake and mounding were designed in 1854. The park was opened in 1858 by Queen Victoria.
