My new book THE LONDON THAMES PATH is out now. Londonist wrote "David Fathers has a beautiful way with words and pictures."

My first guide to THE REGENT'S CANAL has also received great acclaim: Londonist wrote "this is about as good an introductory guide as we can imagine".

In conjuction with the London Thames Path, I have created a poster of THE LONDON THAMES. Featuring the bridges, architecture and landmarks close to and by the river. It is available to buy directly through this website.
