I walked from Richmond to Chiswick (Turnham Green Tube) Like the other reviewers I enjoyed the walk. A good mix of architecture, Parks, roads and rivers. If I'd had the time I'd have liked to spend more time walking round Chiswick Park. Several access issues. Steps over railways, and by Chiswick bridge; steep bridge in Chiswick park (30%), but there are alternate paths; and the cemeteries, the Thames Path down by Chiswick bridge and Chiswick Park all close at dusk; a level crossing. But an interesting walk even on a damp November day....

I walked from Putney to Chiswick (Turnham Green tube). There is a riverside terraced walk, a walk through Chiswick Park and onto Chiswick Common to Turnham Green tube....

The route takes you across the grass on Ealing Common, but there are paths around the edge if this is a problem for wheels (it can get very soft when in winter)....

- Of course the grounds of the Chiswick House are lovely. I also (somewhat hypocritically, perhaps!) wish the route took you down the Chiswick High Street, which is extremely lovely, instead of behind it through Chiswick Common...

Steps at Barnes Bridge, and mud on Putney Common, otherwise good paths and pavements throughout. After a short walk along the riverbank, view of Fulham football ground (photo), the route turns inland to follow the Beverley Brook, and then crosses Putney Common (mud, photo), and Barnes Common (photo)....

Only dinged a star because there’s a long middle stretch along a somewhat large and somewhat industrial road that was just slightly less than pleasant to walk along....

Not the most pleasant slow ways route I’ve ever walked, but it definitely does the job of connecting these two points with a safe, direct, and accessible link!...

It's a decent route that makes the most of local green spaces and doesn't have any narrow places or awkward road crossings. I would certainly recommend it (although note from a previous reviewer that it goes through parks that aren't open at night)...

First proper metropolitan route for this mainly rural flāneur, and blimey you like 'em flat and short...Does the business though with a couple of parks and long streets of identical small mansions. I think it could be wheeled all the way....

This route crosses Putney Bridge and takes the north side of the Thames to Hammersmith, so it's a bit longer than the alternative Chiput One. Comparing the two I would say I preferred Chiput One (the other one), as it's slightly shorter and greener, there's less time in the polluted Putney Bridge/High Street area, and it crosses the river on the magnificent, and currently traffic free, Hammersmith Bridge. The path turns away from the river at Fullers brewery and crosses the Great West Road (underpass), then heads direct to Chiswick meeting point at Turnham Green station....

The route line goes straight across the North Circular from Crossland Avenue to the common - you will be exceptionally lucky if you can do this. The route finishes with a walk through Acton Green Common, and then goes under a railway bridge to Chiswick Common....

There are some good parts of the route - I especially liked the passageway behind Chiswick High Road, and also the relatively quiet residential approach to Ealing Broadway. - Chiswick High Road (twice): in Chiswick, and especially at Kew Bridge. I'm not sure that, for me, this route quite captures the spirit of Slow Ways, being so indirect, and in addition I felt provoked to a bit of a grump when I had to backtrack to the safe road crossing, which I'd already passed by, at Kew Bridge - so for these reasons I've given only two stars....

Cross the railway at North Sheen station (level crossing) and head past the old Mortlake Brewery towards Chiswick Bridge. Chiswick Bridge has a wide pavement, and it's a pretty good river crossing for pedestrians, great views of the Thames - this is the best place to watch the Boat Race finish. On the Chiswick side of the bridge the pavement narrows: it's only a short section, c 100m, but it's shared with cyclists, and they can go pretty fast as they come downhill off the bridge....

This is a route with plenty of riverside paths (parts of which may flood at high tide), refreshment opportunities, and points of interest. There's no flights of stairs and overall the route is fairly flat and on good paths, even along the river....

Richmond to Chiswick crossing the Thames at Chiswick Bridge. On the Chiswick side of the bridge the route goes down steps to the river and briefly joins the Thames path. Eventually the route crosses the railway at Chiswick Station (stairs) and heads into Chiswick House gardens (closed at dusk)....

Nice route that avoids main roads, and is definitely more scenic that ealchi1, although slightly more difficult to navigate. A couple of things to watch out for. Firstly, the route goes right past Brentford fc's stadium, so might be worth avoiding on match days....

Good amenities either end of the route, but you don't pass too many in the middle of the journey. When going through Gunnersbury Park via the north entrance, crossing straight over the field isn't possible due to temporary works, I suggest taking the path on the west side of the park down....

Hammersmith bridge is closed at the moment so you’ve got to continue to Putney Bridge to cross the Thames. It appears unlikely that Hammersmith bridge will be open any time soon. Other than that it’s quite a nice flat route....
