Such a path is the Thames Path, a National Trail of 180 miles, 288 km long. The path starts at the Thames Barrier, which will hopefully protect London against the rising seas. The first day's walk to the west, along the meandering River Thames, will bring you into the very heart of London. And eleven days later, at least if you go move on, your walk will end at the source of the Thames, in the pretty Cotswolds, near Thames Head. In the 19th century there was a towpath all along the River. These paths, on which the horses walked pulling boats, had fallen into disuse in the course of time.

I did this at the New Inn in Lechlade, staying two nights - the then landlord kindly organised a drop off/pick up for me, which worked really well.
