This pleasant stroll along London's river takes you from the outer edge of the western part of the city into the beginnings of suburbia, although hugging the edge of the water means you may not notice until you get there. Although nearly seven miles, this is an easy walk, with plenty to see along the way, taking in a section of the Thames Path National Trail. Some of the features along the way include a river lock, Syon House and the site of the original Meridian. Allow a good three hours to complete. It is also a linear walk, although public transport connections are excellent, and follows made up path along its stretch. The walk will appeal to both the born Londoner and the out of towner, as taking the time to amble through the city is often the best way to really appreciate some of what it has to offer.
The easiest way to get to the start point is via the tube, arriving at Hammersmith station on the Piccadilly or District lines. Cross under the Hammersmith Flyover and cross over the bridge via Hammersmith Bridge Road. The walk starts immediately the other side (nearest postcode SW13 9QT). Richmond is also on the tube (District Line only), from where it's seven stops back to Hammersmith.
