Fairly easy to navigate, although it got quite confusing on the paths around the back of Culham Science Centre as signposting/tracks were not too clear (this could easily have been my poor navigation skills though!). The route is not accessible for buggies/wheelchairs due to a stile, steps, and uneven ground. The route crosses a railway line which you just walk straight across but was fine as the crossing point is clearly marked. The section running parallel to the railway line has a very short section of overgrown bramble which makes it slightly tricky. The final part of the route is on a path to the side of a road. There is a nice river stretch with wildlife to see and hear.

Unusually for routes in this area, a significant amount of it is paved. The section between Burcot and Berinsfield is on pavement next to a road, but the section to the north of the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (marked Thame Lane on maps) is also solid. Having said that, the remaining sections are on pasture or farmland, and not recommended for wheels.

Sights - as well as the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (home of the largest temperatures in the solar system - see https://ccfe.ukaea.uk/research/joint-european-torus/ for details), the walk passes the Culham Motocross Park, and the location of the first pound lock on the Thames.
