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.

Pretty much agree with everything in the first review by Rach in May 2021.

I'd add that on most of the 3-mile section along the river you have a choice of a high tarmac path and a lower gravel/mud path next to the river. The lower path has almost no-one cycling on it, but can get muddy.

A good walk getting off road where possible and making use of less busy roads where not. Coming off Esher High Street you walk through a private estate, which is off limits to cars but fully accessible to pedestrians. There's a quiet section on footpath across Littleworth Common (could get quite muddy when wet) and then you are on roads (with occasional scenic moments) until you get to the river at Hampton Court, where there is a good footpath. The walk is very flat and there are pavements along all of the roads used. There are plenty of cafes at Hampton Court (before you cross the Thames) if you want to have a drink at the halfway point. Once you get onto Barge Walk (the riverside path from Hampton Court to Kingston Bridge) there are no facilities at all until you reach Kingston itself (except benches), but that does mean parts of this path are often pleasantly quiet. If needed or desired, you can shorten this walk by taking the route to Hampton Court and then walking through Bushy Park to Kingston instead of taking the riverside path. There are toilets in Bushy Park (marked on google maps). This saves at least 1.5 miles and is still off road and scenic. You can also get into Home Park from the riverside path, and head across it and along the Long Water to cut the corner, so to speak, to Kingston. Another nice option to vary the terrain if you feel like it.
