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.

This is not a particularly fun route to walk. It's good in terms of being direct and passing many shops, however it follows a very busy main road the whole way. It's on redeeming factor is towards the Brixton end at Brixton Hill. There is a small green space that runs alongside the road which you can walk through. However it is not particularly exciting and you are still metres from the road.

Route follows busy main road with one green space. Lots of shops, cafes along the route. Air pollution high enroute in Streatham.

This is the obvious and direct and definitely quickest walking route between Brixton and Streatham. However, it is along the busy A23 the whole way. I'm sure you could find more pleasant backstreet routes instead along much of it, but it would definitely be longer and you would be looking at the map the whole time. An alternative would be to follow the Brixton to Balham and Balham to Streatham routes whcih would be much more pleasant.

The route is safe, direct and well drawn, but I would only walk it again if I was in a hurry but wanted to walk. Buses follow the same route.

I have walked this route many times but not all in one go or for pleasure. Although there are some splendid trees along the way the whole route is essentially a main traffic thoroughfare. Therefore, any walker on the pavement will be accompanied by cars, van, lorries, buses, coaches, motorbikes, cyclists and the occasional police car and ambulance complete with blue lights flashing. It’s not unusual for some cyclists to venture onto the pavement while the odd electric scooter zips in between both pedestrians and the traffic. Most, if not all, of the pavements can accommodate mobility vehicles.
For part of the way there is some middle of the road greenery but this doesn’t detract from the impact of the volume of traffic on walkers. There is no shortage of shops, coffee shops and bars along the way but this is not an attractive walk by any measure. This type of route can be avoided by using quiet backstreets and green spaces although this will increase the distance and time for completing the walk.
