Help connect Plaistow
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 Plaistow’s Slow Ways.

I walked starting at North Woolwich and almost did a detour soon after starting, assuming I could not go through the gate in the photo - however it is open to those using the capital ring path and opens for you when you press the button, it just looks uninviting....
Agree with other reviewers, it's a good route, mostly along the greenway so well away from cars. I've cycled it many times for work and it is well used by locals....
The Greenway is a large sewage pipe which has been greened for use as a n elevated walking and cycling route....
Slightly indirect but worth it because a lot is off road, following the Capital Ring, which is well signposted....
It is enjoyable to walk on good paths beginning at the River Thames River Path and proceeding via local paths and road....

Feels safe and accessible and a perfect place to watch the changing seasons in the heart of the city...
