this walk isn’t really the ‘Thames’ Path at all – through Oxford until Iffley Lock, the river is known as the Isis.
HOW TO GET THERE
Oxford station is just off the A420. Parking at the station is for rail users only; there are other car parks in the city but they are expensive. Oxford station is served by trains from Didcot Parkway, Reading and the north. The Oxford Bus Company's X3 service runs regularly from Stratton Road in Abingdon to Oxford station.
In summer, you can walk one way then get a steamer back along the river.
