As the First Town on the Thames, Cricklade is the ideal base for exploring the upper reaches of the river.
One of the best ways to observe the wildlife along the River Thames is to follow the Thames Path National Trail. The trail follows the river from its source at Thames Head, through Cricklade, to the Thames Barrier, near Greenwich. The Thames Path National Trail was established in 1989, provides well signposted walking for 184 miles and is looked after by The Thames Path Partnership.
The path runs through Fairview Fields, an area of open space maintained by the Town Council for leisure and recreation purposes which encompasses the Millennium and Jubilee Woods.
Cricklade Heritage Trail will take you on a leisurely walk around the key historic locations in the town via a series of information boards.
