At last, you reach the Thames Barrier. Good luck if you are starting the the 186 mile journey upstream. Well done if you have completed the trail from Thameshead. The Environment Agency has a good information centre at the barrier, and there is a cafe for well-deserved refreshment. Opening hours: 10.30 am to 5pm, Thursdays to Sundays. Should you be tempted to walk further down beside the river, the Thames Path continues to Erith and Gravesend, but it is not currently a part of the official National Trail.
