Description

Reworking of Kinkin One. The route has been improved to follow the Tamsin Trail rather than the motor road through Richmond Park. It has also been more accurately drawn so that road crossing points are clearer.
The basic routing choices stay the same - Richmond Park and residential roads through Kingston.
Note that Richmond Park is (usually) open but unlit at night. It has night closures during the deer cull periods (generally around November and February)

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.

This is a route I made in response to Kinkin One, as an option that follows footpaths rather than the road through Richmond Park.
I really enjoyed walking this route, especially being close to the trees and birds. There were several benches to rest on and generally this was an excellent walk.
At Kingston the route passes through quiet residential streets with a couple of pubs and a fish and chip shop.
In the park the route follows the Tamsin Trail, which is shared with bicycles. The upside is that the path surface is pretty decent and well drained, apart from some of the steep sections where the recent heavy rain makes channels in the surface.
There are toilets in the park at Kingston Gate and Robin Hood Gate.
At Kingston Vale the route does a dog-leg to the final meeting point. If you are carry on walking you can skip this and cross straight over the A3 to Wimbledon Common.
However if you want refreshment at Kingston Vale then go to the end of the route and there is a small row of shops where I enjoyed coffee and ice-cream at an Italian restaurant - highly recommended. A new cake shop appears to be about to open too!.
