This 4½ mile circular walk takes you from Goring along the River Thames, through wildflower meadows and to the top of the North Wessex Downs. There are amazing views of the Chiltern Hills and Thames Valley. You can enjoy the fresh air and fantastic countryside of two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Along the way you may see features of interest and wildlife such as red kites, kingfishers and muntjac deer.

Goring and Streatley are small picturesque villages at the foot of hills separated by the River Thames. There are several pubs serving food, restaurants, cafes, local shops,accommodation and a Youth Hostel. There is a regatta during the summer. Public toilets are located in Goring car park. There are no toilets or refreshments on the walks outside of the villages.

You can combine the North Wessex Downs Walk with The Chilterns walk ( 4 or 5½ miles, allow 1¾ to 2½ hours) to make a long walk.

We hope you'll enjoy this walk. If you do please consider making a small donation to help us continue to care for the Ridgeway National Trail and provide information about it.
