Connect Eton with Slow Ways

We’re creating a network of walking routes that connect all of Britain’s towns, cities and national parks

more walks and reviews are needed to fully connect Eton to the verified network. Can you give a hike and help?

Slow Ways linking Eton and Horton (Windsor and Maidenhead), Maidenhead, Slough, Windsor

England / Berkshire / Eton

Eton’s four Slow Ways are 69% checked

Help connect Eton

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Eton’s Slow Ways.

This would be quite hard work with a wheelchair but there are lovely views along the river from the top. The route then follows the path along the river, which is a lovely stretch of the walk....

Going through Braywick Park, you share part of the route with the Maidenhead ParkRun, and it can get muddy in parts after some rains. This is a beautiful part of the route where you pass Bray Marina, Oakley Court and Windsor Marina (all on your right), while Dorney Lake is on your left. Some of us have used this path for cycling before and it can get very muddy after some rainfall, and otherwise as well not suitable for wheelchairs, as it is a rugged path. Many people use this for walking this dogs, running & cycling, so it can get busy at times.! 1) Take a toilet break at the Braywick Leisure Centre (get off the track for a bit from Braywick Park) as there are no other real places you could use toilets along the way after this. As most of the route is busy, finding a spot in the bushes will not be easy!...

I enjoyed this Slow Way; you might look at the route and think ‘what is that bulge for, why not just go straight along the road?’, but the bulgy bit along the Jubilee River and across the famous ‘playing fields of Eton’ is lovely and tranquil....

I really enjoyed walking this route between Maidenhead and Eton. The dog leg coming out of Braywick Park onto Hibbert Road is to avoid walking a blind corner, coming from Eton direction it may seem uneccesary. A bit further on the the route turns onto fields and heads directly to Eton....

The first part of the route between Horton and Datchet is the same as Winhor Two. After Datchet the route turns off the road and goes alongside a golf course, crosses the Jubilee River, and approaches Eton through the college playing fields, alongside the renowned Eton Wall. If I had to choose between Etohor Two and Winhor Two I would pick this one because I found the section between Datchet and Eton more interesting than the section between Datchet and Windsor...

I walked along Eton High Street, enjoyed a well-kept pint of the local beer at the excellent George Inn, then across the Thames on a footbridge, and up the (fairly steep) hill past the Theatre Royal (Cherry Orchard) to finish opposite Windsor Castle, outside the Central Station (service to Slough). 4 stars, not the route's fault, too many cars in Windsor for perfection, but close!...

By the time I got to the bridge I was already reaching for my inhaler, and there's more to come before getting to the Jubilee River and the start of off-road walking. Compared with walking along the Thames path I found the Jubilee a little dull....
