A circular walk from the charming village of Sonning in Berkshire. Sonning was described by Jerome K Jerome in his book, Three Men in a Boat, as the most fairy-like little nook on the whole river. This simple walking route takes you on a permissive track between quiet fields before joining the riverside path following the Thames for the return leg. The route is almost entirely flat, with little gradient to speak of. Whilst half of the route follows surfaced paths, the stretch of path alongside the river is narrow and can be muddy at times. There are no stiles on route but you will need to negotiate a couple of kissing gates and there are a couple of road crossings that need care. All the paths are fenced away from the fields so you will not be sharing any of the paths with livestock. Allow 1.5 hours.

Very good. Took 2.5 hours with a 5 and 2 year old but they loved it. Not a huge amount of shade on the first half but second half better

Lovely walk through Sonning giving you chance to look at all the amazing houses. Down a gravel farm track makes easy walking with fresh views and finishes off along the river bank. Would be ideal to stop off at the coppa club for a drink afterwards.
