London Parks Way
100 km / 62 miles
The London Parks Way has been designed as an attempt to produce a comprehensive walking route through many of London's parks, beginning at Kingston station and finishing at the Cutty Sark at Greenwich. This London Parks Way passes through the Royal Parks of Bushy Park, Richmond Park, Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Regents Park, St James Park, and Greenwich Park as well as Hampton Court Park, Holland Park, Victoria Park and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. If you walk the London Parks Way you will also see some of the prettiest sections of the River Thames, walk along the Regents Canal, see the regeneration of London Docklands, visit a traditional London street market, and pass through a city farm. Most of the sites used in the hugely successful 2012 Olympic Games will be seen on this walk.
The approximate distance is 62 miles and it is split into 6 sections each of which is a self-contained walk that can be reached by train. The route website linked below has full details of the route with mapping, track files, history notes, photo galleries and walk descriptions, free to download. With the Olympic Park opening, the full route is now available.
