We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This route is perfectly fine, easy to navigate and simple. The road is a bit noisy, so I can’t say it was my favorite route, but it was an overall good way to get between Kennington and Brixton.

This route follows the obvious and direct route between Brixton and Oval stations, but that comes at the cost of following the busy main road. There are definitely worse main roads to walk along - you pass a number of areas of grass and trees just off the road - but it is always busy during the day. Choose this option if you are in a hurry; if not, choose Briken 1 instead.

The best way to describe this route is direct. It follows a busy main road the whole way and whilst there are lots of places to get food and drink it is uninspiring otherwise. BRIKEN one is a much more enjoyable route between the two locations.

Rather than sticking to a traffic-laden main road this route takes you through the backstreets and byways of this little stretch of Lambeth, complete with a nice green space with a small hill. This walk takes you through several housing estates - some old and some new - and on the way there are a number of shops and offices reflecting the multi-cultural population. This is a better option than Briken one.

I have inadvertently used incorrect information for this review and can’t delete it. I have reported this but will now give a report on this route. I must confess to not having walked this route as I have walked along this road many times in the past. While there are some interesting features, bars, cafes and venues along this route the reality is that this is a not a pleasant walk as this road is a main thoroughfare with lots of traffic. Briken one offers a much better option.
