Sunday Walk: Richmond Park and the Thames Path

Norbiton to Hammersmith
Length: 16.8km (10.4 miles) Toughness: 2/10

10:18Strawberry Hill train from Waterloo (Vauxhall 10:22, Clapham Junction 10:27, Wimbledon 10:34) arriving at Norbiton at 10:43.

For the return journey, there are frequent tube trains and bus services from Hammersmith (TfL zone 2). Norbiton is in TfL zone 5

The morning section of the walk is mainly through Richmond Park, followed, after lunch in Barnes, by an afternoon leg along the Thames Path, with a diversion to visit the grounds of Chiswick House. The house itself is closed for the winter, but nearby Hogarth House (home of the artist William Hogarth) is open until 5pm.

The directions include various options for shortening the walk by dropping out at Barnes or Chiswick, and for extending the walk to Putney.

There are several possible lunch places in Barnes, including the Sun Inn (020 8876 5256) on Barnes Green.

You will need to download a PDF of the walk directions, or print the version you want from the walk's information page, suppressing the sections you don't need.
