Oxford to Reading practicalities
(as of August 2010)


This is a beautiful riverside walk, easily accomplished from London in three days total, including travel. The flat waterside makes for easy walking; however when we were booking, convenient places to stay were tricky to find - our second day was long because of stopping at North Stoke.
