I walked from Canary Warf to Canada Water. The walk starts alongside the Wharf between glass towers, then a detour, the way is temporarily blocked (I took the orange line on the map photo) but there are alternative ways to get to Canary Wharf Pier to catch the ferry across the river to the Double Tree Hilton. There is then a conical hill which if 60 steps does not put you off has amazing views of the surrounding city....

This is a series of busy streets, walkways and cycle paths joining three parks. A lovely walk with plenty to hold your attention or distract the eye; bustling highstreets, quiet roads, open fields; tarmac paths and lovely green spaces; markets and supermarkets....

Walk this route

After a very unpromising start - busy, major roads and a bus terminus to negotiate, things improved significantly as I walked through quiet back streets and estates, and a series of green spaces, including alongside the Ravensbourne and around Greenland Dock. Plenty of shops and other facilities at either end of the route....

Straight forward route involving foot paths, parks and quiet roads. There is one section that goes past an industrial estate and Millwall football stadium which may not be safe to walk at night because it feels quite isolated. Otherwise, no obvious problems....

Close to Canada Water there are steps up to Surrey Quays Road which can be avoided with a simple detour around the Decathlon building (follow the lake past the Decathlon store entrance, turn left along the service road to rejoin the mapped route on Surrey Quays Road). The only busy main road is a short stretch along Evelyn Street - this can be avoided with a detour through Sayes Court Park (from Grove Street turn left into the park, follow the Thames Path signs ahead and right emerging into Sayes Court Street. Head straight on towards the main road, rejoining the mapped route at Prince Street)....

There is a lot of construction work around Canada Water and the route was blocked by a small diversion shortly after the start, then I found that there is no footpath along the route indicated on Deal Porters Way - the route needs to be changed to follow the other side of the large car park along the edge of Surrey Quays Shopping Centre. There are plenty of public transport options all through the route which passes by Surrey Quays, New Cross, Deptford Bridge and Elverson Road stations....

Walk this route

The only downside of it is the need to use a ferry to cross the Thames for which you will have to pay, and should this be out of service for any reason then the route is impossible. I started from Canary Wharf and the first part of the route is identical to 'Betcan' until you get to the ferry. There are a couple of points where you need to ignore the signposts for Canada Water if you want to follow the Slow Ways route - I had to retrace my steps a couple of times because of this....
