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.

I walked from Brixton to London Bridge.
Proper Slow Way, Direct and interesting. Okay there were some monotonous road parts but there was also so many things to see. People and places to stop and view.
Buildings and history, old and new. And it gets you there, easy to navigate.
Wheel friendly, flat with the usual street furniture obstacles.

Very poor route on all main roads. Functional for getting a to b, but not a proper slow ways route.

I walked this route from London Bridge to Kennington, and I actually ended up really enjoying it.

There's some notable London landmarks on the route, including Borough Market, Elephant & Castle, Mercato Metropolitano, etc. There's a couple lovely parks, including Kennington Park. The route offers a really interesting opportunity to watch the city develop as you pass through extremely diverse neighbourhoods undergoing rapid change all at once.

The route is direct, accessible, safe, and it follows wide pavements. It kept my interest the whole way, and I was very pleased, in the end.

I walked this from London Bridge to Kennington. I really didn't enjoy this walk very much. It does the job of getting from A to B, it is flat and easy to follow, but the route is entirely along main roads. Towards the end I nipped into Kennington Park and took a path that runs parallel with the road - a definite improvement! The other thing to note if you are not familiar with this part of London, is that the Kennington end of the route is at Oval tube station NOT Kennington tube station which is part of the way along the route.

This direct route takes you via many nice Kennington pubs, through the Elephant and Castle, and up Borough High Street towards Borough Market. You get to see the brilliant diversity of architecture found in South London, with plane-tree bordered high streets leading up to the busy gateway of Zone 1, and finishing at the impressive Shard and London Bridge station.

The route is flat, well-serviced (many cafes, bars and shops) and safe - with the exception of there being heavy traffic around the Elephant and Castle roundabout.

Pavements are flat and there is little elevation, so this route should be accessible to wheelchair users. There are multiple busses leading along this route.
