Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Three Horseshoes in Laleham, Surrey. The Three Horseshoes is a friendly independent pub that's casual enough to be comfortable, whilst smart enough to feel special. The walking route takes in the village highlights, the peaceful Penton Hook Island, a long stretch of the Thames Path and Laleham Park. There is plenty of historical interest, lots of wildlife and boatlife to enjoy on the Thames and even a chance for a paddle. The walking route is almost entirely flat. Whilst half the paths are surfaced, the other half are across grass and dirt paths which can be muddy in the winter months and after periods of rain. There are no stiles or kissing gates on route, just one single gate (which is quite generous) and several fairly wide footbridges to negotiate. (Only one of the bridges, across the lock gates, has a single step up to it so the route would be suitable for a rugged pushchair). Dogs are welcome on the permissive paths on Penton Hook Island and a dog waste bin is provided here. Approximate time 2 hours.

Laleham village is located in the Spelthorne borough of Surrey, beside the River Thames immediately downstream from Staines. The walk starts and finishes at the Three Horseshoes pub which is on the main road through the village, the B376, just south of the church. The pub has its own large car park. Approximate post code TW18 1SE.

Overall was a nice sunny stroll by the riverside, the start of the trail is quite undesirable but once you turn off the main road it’s much nicer, you cross the river onto a little island with lots of tress we stopped off here and found a quite place to sit by the river, then you loop back on yourself and follow the river until you turn off near a camping club and through a giant field with a few trees scattered about, and back to the road where you start at the pub. Nice walk if you like to be near water. Take a pack lunch could make a day of it.

Lovely stretch along Thames path. The final leg is across fields so you need boots in wet weather!

Nice walk. Beautiful houses. Quite a lot of roads. No car park at horseshoes pub. Public car park I’d follow road around and go straight over island on right

Really nice walk - especially around Penton Hook Lock / Island with lots of interesting riverside properties, houseboats etc. Three Horseshoes pub was lovely albeit a bit pricey and unexpectedly busy so we were lucky to get a table.

First to Review

Pub looked lovely. We got there at about 4.30pm on a Sunday and it was full so think of booking beforehand!
