Led by experts from the Thames Landscape Strategy, this unique walk sets out to demonstrate the highs and lows of the River Thames. Not for the faint hearted, the walk starts at Kew during low tide and finishes at the Ham flood meadows. During the walk, we will be able to learn how the river is controlled in its upper tidal reaches and experience its changing character as the water levels increase. At low tide, we can mess about on the foreshore, at Richmond we can see the tidal lock and weir in operation, and at Ham can watch the power of the high tide as it sweeps across the floodplain.
