Evening Walk - Chelsea and Battersea Park

Length: 6.0 km (if finishing at Victoria)
Net Walking Time: 1 ½ hours (if finishing at Victoria)

Meet: outside Sloane Square Tube Station (District and Circle Line, Zone 1), by the Newspaper Kiosk, at 18.30 hours.
Finish as per the route map is at London Victoria; should punters have a drink or meal in one of the establishments under the railway arches by Chelsea Bridge, then a bus finish from Chelsea Bridge makes more sense.

King’s Road, Chelsea Back Streets, Albert and Chelsea Bridges, Battersea Park.
At the end, punters could explore a route past the Nine Elms Thames-side development to Vauxhall Tube and Main Line stations…

Anyway, very interesting to see it all, and - despite the diversion - a walk I'd do again, quite happily. At Vauxhall Bridge and station for 21.15...
