The city views are nice in the first hour but the best part is after the traffic noise from the m50 subsides. I was actually shocked how audible it was and for how far. I would also add a word of caution for the very last stretch is on a main road with no foot path. I found that very stressful especially with a dog in tow. When you’re in the middle though it is spectacular. I would do it again, maybe figure out a different way of getting back.
I did it in five hours including two stops for a cuppa! one of which was in a lovely cafe just before the precarious bit of road.
