Description

Hounslow to Ealing Broadway via Osterley. A mix of shops, residential, and green walking, including a surprisingly rural landscape at Osterley Park. Quite direct and with reasonable refreshment opportunities. No long flights of steps, but there are some tight paths and gates, and a railway footpath crossing with a couple of wooden steps each side.
You'll have at least one moment on this walk when you forget you are in London!

Surveys

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.

Excellent route, with a good combination of rural and urban walking. Direct, easy to navigate, and plenty of food and drink options at either end of the walk. One slightly dull section of pavement walking along Windmill Lane in the middle, but either side of that a thoroughly enjoyable walk.

Excellent route that passes through some of the best green spaces in west London: Osterley Park and Warren Farm Nature Reserve.
There's some pavement walking of course, mostly through residential streets, with a short stretch through an industrial estate (watch out for HGV drivers); but as well as Osterley Park and Warren Farm, there's Brent River Park, Elthorne Park and Walpole Park to ensure no shortage of greenery.

I set off from Ealing Broadway and walked through a mix of parks and residential streets as far as the River Brent.
I enjoyed a cup of tea at the Magic Cafe, on Trumpers Way, and also took a detour to look at the Long Wood nature reserve, which is tucked up by the M4.
Osterley Park is like a country estate, fields, cows, crops - it doesn't feel like London at all. But then here is the Piccadilly line and before long I'm arriving in Hounslow. I don't think I'd ever get tired of walking this route.

Accessibility
No flights of stairs, but there is a railway crossing that involves a step up to the track and down the other side (see pic), and some narrow gates.
