Thames Walk Geotrail

This trail has been prepared by the South London RIGS group associated with the Ravensbourne Geological Society.

The Thames Path Geotrail is a self led walk of 6 miles from the Thames Barrier to Rotherhithe, and reveals some of the fascinating Earth Science stories hidden below the concrete foundations of London. Traces of past climate change, that totally eclipse current concerns, and tales of human endeavor are made clear by studying the geology of London by walking over it.

The walk follows the Thames Path National Trail from the Thames Barrier to Rotherhithe, with a short deviation along the Green Chain Walk.
