Walked from Dulwich to Brixton. An easy, enjoyable and fairly direct route. We modified our route slightly to accommodate MikeIn Brixton's suggested improvements, and Mary has uploaded the route we walked as Bridul 2. I will put a more detailed review with pictures on the new route.

A nice and short walk connecting Dulwich Village and Brixton - unfortunately a lot is on pavements which is somewhat unavoidable.

Nonetheless, a practical route that offers plenty of opportunities for further exploration both in Brockwell Park and Brixton itself.

This is a perfectly good urban Slow Way - I'd 100% walk it again. A great slice of London life, including Brockwell Park

I joined the route after walking from Catford to Dulwich and enjoyed the combination.

I can see some other reviewers have suggestions for other/better ways to go. It would be great the best alternative(s) uploaded onto the site.

This is a perfectly satisfactory route between Brixton and Dulwich. Apart from the section through Brockwell Park it is on roadside pavements, but there are no practical alternatives which avoid roads. It is largely flat and the route is paved the whole way, with the only obstacles being curbs at road crossings. It only gets 3 stars from me because it is not very interesting or scenic, but no alternatives would be any different.

A nice route between the two points once you reach Brockwell Park. Following that it is quiet residential roads to Dulwich.

It would be better to start out from Brixton by walking through St Matthews Church Yard and then go down Rush Common and turn left into Brixton Water Lane and pick up the route - much preferable to walking down Effra Road.
