Cannon Street Station to Canary Wharf
Distance: 4.5 miles or 7 km for those more metrically minded
Difficulty: 1 out of 10
Meet: The Banker Pub – 200 meters from Cannon St. Tube and Rail Station (on the Thames)
Time: 18:30 – but if you miss our departure, you can certainly catch us up along the way…
I posted this route a few years back as an ad hoc outing and it was well received – so I decided to add it to our official repertoire of short walks for summer evenings…. It hardly requires any instructions, aside from, keep the river on your right – but, I have prepared a few to assist with navigating along a couple of stretches where the Thames Path leaves the river’s edge.
The route basically follows the Thames Path
from Cannon St. Station
to Canary Wharf Pier
, passing through historic Wapping with its atmospherically converted warehouses. We will be making three historic visits – at the Town of Ramsgate
, the Prospect of Whitby
and the Grapes
. At Canary Wharf Pier, you can elect to catch a Thames Clipper
back to central London or meander through the buildings to the DLR Station.

Enjoy the walk!
