Slow Ways linking Tolworth and Esher, Ewell, Kingston, Motspur Park

Help connect Tolworth

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 Tolworth’s Slow Ways.

As others said the narrow lane no path section is hair raising - too much so for me - so carried on the signposted London Loop taking Royal Avenue rather than Barrow Road and rejoined at the Toby Jug. Added about an extra 0.5 km. I'm going to walk it in reverse from Tolworth and see what happens...

Easy walking through parks and the banks of the river, part of the London loop. Good access and wide enough to share with cyclists. A lot of “alternative” paths so keep an eye out for the way-markers, but the river is the main guide...

A bigger problem was not being able to find a footpath alongside the Hogsmill River between Barrow Hill and the Toby Jug pub.which meant walking on a main road, Church Road B284, with no footpath or grass verges to safely walk. The Hogsmill River Trail website offers an alternative route between St John’s Church and the Toby Jug pub https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/98547/ES-Hogsmill-River-Trail-Part-One.pdf....

You follow the Hogsmill river for most of it, crossing it a couple of times, so it’s very easy to follow. Bourne Hall Park also seems to close 30mins before sunset, so that part of the route will be inaccessible at times...
