OS Wallpaper: October 2019

The Thames from Hungerford Bridge by Gareth James

To celebrate the launch of the new OS Urban 'Walk London' map, we've chosen this autumnal sunset over the Thames, taken by Gareth James

The Thames Path is a long distance walking trail which following England's best known river for 184 miles (294 Km) from its source in the Cotswolds right through the heart of London. Even in the city, you can find hidden spots of peaceful tranquillity, along with some of the best-known views in the world and centuries of history just waiting to be discovered.

The new Walk London map (now available in the OS Shop and from high street retailers) is designed to help visitors and locals discover the Thames path and the Royal Parks, with a range of suggested routes and loads of information on key features you will see on the way.
