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.

I walked this route from Kensington to Knightsbridge. It's a great route for sure. It's almost entirely in Hyde Park, which is extremely lovely. For the last stretch before Knightsbridge, I ended up walking along the south side of South Carriage Drive, which meant I didn't really feel like I was in the park. Looking at the route on here, though, I can see that I could have followed any of the parallel paths that are slightly more in the park, which would have given me a much more enjoyable experience.

I've only dinged a star for the bit along Kensington High Road. It's safe, accessible, and direct; it's just far more traffic-clogged than pleasant!

Overall, a great Slow Ways route, and one I'd happily recommend again. Always take the chance to walk through Hyde Park when you get it.

Direct and mostly off road, very good route, 5 stars.

Walked from Kensington to Knightsbridge. The route starts on Kensington High Street and has a lot of traffic and people, but soon it turns off into Kensington Gardens. I often walk this way in summer because there is a lot of shade from the chestnut trees. It's a very pleasant park with dog walkers, picnickers and families out relaxing.
The path passes by the Albert Memorial, with statues commemorating the global British empire; and nearby is the Royal Albert Hall.

At around the half way point, where Kensington Gardens turns into Hyde Park, I stopped for refreshments at the Pavilion cafe, which is right by the path. Then I carried on, past the Household Cavalry barracks, until I left the park down a little alleyway, and then onto the congested roads at Knightsbridge. There are a few roads to cross here. And a rhinoceros.

I enjoyed this walk and recommend.

This is a good, direct and mostly off-road route that makes good use of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens.
