Help connect Knightsbridge

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 Knightsbridge’s Slow Ways.

Very straight forward easily navigated route; although today (June 23) there was a big event in Hyde Park blocking the route (see pictures) but it was easy enough to walk around back onto the mapped path....

Added a lot of length to the route walking back and forth across the road and down side streets around barriers (June 2023). The pavement under foot made of Yorkshire flagstone, dug out to get at the coal and used a paving, you can see the black coal streaks waving through the stone reminding you of the foundation of where all this wealth came from, the earth....

This is mostly Hyde Park which has good paths....

Lots of poshness on this short urban walk....

If you have no reason to go down Oxford Street, this is absolutely the correct route to take!...

Walk this route

A lovely mostly off-road route through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. A real gem in the capital....

Knightsbridge—Oxford Circus

Derick Rethans added Knioxf three, a new walk from Knightsbridge to Oxford Circus

Walk this route

This route is both terribly inaccurately drawn, and has access issues (like going in between the museums)....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

It's not too much out of what I really walked in Hyde Park, so I am not going to bother with a new route....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

It's a good and direct route. But Oxford Street on a Saturday is too slow, even for slow ways :-). It also makes no sense to walk the route around Marble Arch as this one does, as it's not a walkable part really. Much better would be to cross right next to Marble Arch....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

One is the lovely Hyde Park, and the other half the streets south of Oxford Circus, but a lot less busy (except for the short section on Regent's Street). I prefer this over Knioxf 1 & 2....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

So if you're heading north, just go straight to Speaker's Corner and cross straight to Marble Arch....

The connection from Paddington to Hyde Park is perfectly satisfactory; I'd probably prefer Padkni two, but this route works, too!...

Knightsbridge—Oxford Circus

Lynn Jackson added Knioxf two, a new walk from Knightsbridge to Oxford Circus

Walk this route

Be aware that there are regular Hyde Park events that will prevent you from following this exact route The Park. I won't give a lower rating however because it is a lovely route; just be aware that you'll need to walk around the closed-off areas and that may take a few more minutes....

Lynn Jackson

My walking companion and I were unable to use Knioxf 1 because an event in Hyde Park had fenced a large part of the route off. And because a heatwave had hit over 30 degC, after Oxford Street we were grateful for the trees that lined the path. If you need shade, this is the route to use....

Lynn Jackson

Overall, a great Slow Ways route, and one I'd happily recommend again....

It's a perfect Slow Ways route - direct, accessible, off road, safe, pleasant and beautiful....

The route starts on Kensington High Street and has a lot of traffic and people, but soon it turns off into Kensington Gardens. At around the half way point, where Kensington Gardens turns into Hyde Park, I stopped for refreshments at the Pavilion cafe, which is right by the path....

Jane Taylor

Walk this route

Its a good urban walk through the heart of Belgravia - including Belgrave Square and Eaton Square. Fairly direct, lots of embassies, Bentleys are the car of preference in this area. I've dropped a star because I would have liked less Knightsbridge in my Knightsbridge walk - get onto the back streets sooner....

Good route through Hyde park. Could be slightly more direct....

I did the whole route along the Chelsea High Street but it ended somewhat anticlimactically at the Chelsea node!...

I walked this from Victoria to Knight's Bridge and it follows along pleasant enough streets, and a square full of embassies. I'm giving it 4 stars because sometimes the car traffic is annoyingly in the way and requires the walkers to wait....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

A solid urban slow ways route, with bits of greenery, active shopping areas, and quiet residential streets. A special plus on this route was passing by several embassy buildings! Easily four stars, a perfectly good connection between these two points...

Walk this route

Curiously, Serpentine Walk that is the most direct route to Hyde Park from the station was blocked off at the northern gate, which I've walked through many times before. This meant I had to detour through Edinburgh Gate to the west, which can't be blocked for pedestrians....

Otherwise, I had no navigational troubles and thought it was a perfectly pleasant and lovely route!...
