Thames Path through Royal Greenwich

View the Thames Path route

Please note: The Thames Path will be closed in Greenwich, between Banning Street and Tunnel Avenue, until September 2018 to allow for work by Bellway and Barratt Homes. This includes the alignment of the new river wall and the final construction of the path.

The Thames Path provides a high-quality, traffic-free walking and cycling route for most of the length of the Thames throughout Royal Greenwich.

Completing the path

There are some sections of the Thames Path where it diverts onto main roads. Work is underway to make the path a continuous traffic-free route along its whole length through the borough.

River crossings

Some bridges along the Thames Path may open for river vessels to pass through, for example, the Deptford Creek Swingbridge and Ha'Penny Hatch. Bridge openings stop pedestrian traffic for five to ten minutes.

There are also foot tunnels in Woolwich and Greenwich. These are usually open all day, but lifts or stairs may sometimes be closed for maintenance or cleaning.
