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.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This is a reasonably direct route that makes the best use of the material it has to work with. With no bridge across the Thames at Twickenham, and no riverside path, there is little option than to walk along the A310 as far as Teddington Lock, with only small diversions. The local footpaths where they exist are not especially pleasant, and on balance I think the road is the best option for now.
The route is accurate enough not to go astray, and the riverside path from Teddington Lock to Kingston is always busy with plenty of distractions - fishermen, cyclists, joggers, dog walkers. On the water you may see canoes, kayaks, sail dinghies, a paddle boat, paddle boards and my favourite the e-foils.
The path is step free all the way, and even the cycle barriers at Teddington Lock are widely spaced (so posing no barrier to bicycles!). The riverside path isn't lit at night.

Very pleasant walk which user-friendly for all users. No steps and good paths. Mainly follows the River Thames. The Kingston end is on the tow path which was busy as a Sunday afternoon. The Twickenham end is mainly on pavements following the road as the houses have river front views. The bridge across the river at Teddington has ramps so is pushchair/wheelchair friendly.
