Great walk by the shore of the river, plenty of green spaces to rest and restaurantes from different types of cuisines. It's one of the nicest places to visit, specially during summer. Really enjoyable.

This town is absolutely worth visiting. Take your time to explore it. Beautiful housing, city center, and outstanding architecture. Strongly recommended. Also, if commuting by car, its is near ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS, HAMPTON COURT PALACE - not free- and some other unforgettable gems!

Had a lovely walk down here in the sunshine. The path was busy with prams and joggers. Enjoyable stroll by the Thames, watching the world go by.
