What you'll do

This is a 10 kilometre (6.2 miles) guided hike through heaths, commons, woods and parks of SW London. The trail is 80% off-road, following paths and tracks that are rarely visited by non-locals and visitors to London. The trail is special in that you are guided through natural unspoiled habitats that make you feel like you are in the countryside and a hundred miles from the city. There is a high chance of spotting wild Red Deer and Fallow Deer along the way. The walk starts at Putney railway station (15 minute train journey from Waterloo) and terminates at Richmond Station (District Tube Line and Overground). Within 10 minutes we are off-road and in woodland, and we continue through spectacular ancient woods and conserved parkland. We pass by ponds, rivers and monuments, taking in the trees and wildlife along the way. Coffee and snacks are available at a half-way cafe.
