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.

A direct, safe and accessible route from Kensington to Chelsea, through some very handsome residential streets. There's a cafe along the way in case you want some refreshments, but agree with the reviewer below, options are limited. All in all a good route that gets you from A to B.

A safe and reasonably direct route making the most of quieter residential streets. Easy to follow and with no steps. Backs on to Gloucester Road Tube Station. A few shops along its short way. Plenty of shops at either end.

A quiet walk around mostly residential streets. Not as much to see along the way, but it is fairly free from busy traffic and direct. If I were rating based on interest, character, or beauty, I would probably score this a 3, but for quiet and direct, it is a 5, so I'm giving it a 4 as a compromise.

Efficient route between Chelsea (Kings Road) and Kensington (High Street) which sticks to the quieter streets. I didn’t find it especially inspiring, and found myself wondering if there might be some quirkier, more interesting, twists and turns to make it more memorable.
A good Slow Way nevertheless and worth its snail!.

I really enjoyed this route. It does its best to wind its way down quiet residential streets, and the walk as a result is very pleasant. You won't necessarily catch me raving about the route, but I have absolutely no complaints and I'm certain it's one of the best possible ways to get between Kensington and Chelsea.

Flat walking no steps and through lots of roads of beautiful and expensive houses. Limited refreshment opportunities as mostly restaurants. Fully accessible and safe.
