Getting There

Note: Hammersmith Bridge is currently closed to all traffic and pedestrians due to safety concerns about the bridge (13 August 2020). This pleasant stroll along London's river takes you from the outer edge of the western part of the city into the beginnings of suburbia, although hugging the edge of the water means you may not notice until you get there. This is an easy walk, with plenty to see along the way, taking in a section of the Thames Path National Trail. Some of the features along the way include a river lock, Syon House and the site of the original Meridian. Allow a good three hours to complete. It is also a linear walk, although public transport connections are excellent, and follows made up path along its stretch. The walk will appeal to both the born Londoner and the out of towner, as taking the time to amble through the city is often the best way to really appreciate some of what it has to offer.

The easiest way to get to the start point is via the tube, arriving at Hammersmith station on the Piccadilly or District lines. Cross under the Hammersmith Flyover and cross over the bridge via Hammersmith Bridge Road. The walk starts immediately the other side (nearest postcode SW13 9QT). Richmond is also on the tube (District Line only), from where it's seven stops back to Hammersmith.

WalkingMuddy

This was such a lovely walk. Incredibly muddy at this time of year, but fun all the same. I’m a beginner and this was just the right length for a first go. It took me 3 hours to complete, and there are stunning views along the way.

Did this one the other weekend with my partner and we both really enjoyed the easy walk. The weather was great, she was happy - what else you need? Definitely recommending this walk to anyone at any age.

Stage 3 - Putney to Kingston A nice Sunday walk. A lot of joggers initially. Bikes continuously and very busy toward the end as there was a regatta at the Boaters Inn. Pleasant walk on part old bituminised and part natural graded trail. So far this has been the most rural feeling walk. Very pleasant with a nice lunch stopover in Richmond at the “White Swan”

First to Review

There are several pubs along this walk. Suggest some walkers would benefit from local history study before walking as there is much to see but limited coverage in the script.
