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.

It is what it is. There is a more scenic route available as this is pretty much a straight stroll down Kensington High street and Hammersmith Road.

Not unpleasant but not particularly exiting.

Walked Hammersmith to Kensington on a quiet Bank Holiday Monday.

Very direct and accessible route with wide pavements and safe crossing points. Several good food options, and I enjoyed browsing in the charity shops. Passes by Olympia exhibition centre, which is having work done but I think still operating. And I was surprised to see date palms growing happily, must be a special Kensington micro climate! (Photo)

Yes, it is a busy artery. Some (including myself), might prefer a quieter back streets approach; having had a look around I’d say there would be some payoff with accessibility (steps, park opening hours), and directness.

4 stars from me.
