Morning walk & coffee: Ham House from Richmond, 4.5 miles loop

  • Mar 9, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This circular walk from Richmond to Ham House will lead us from urban bustle of Richmond town centre to rural riverside walk along the Thames. It is about 4.5 miles so it will be a short walk in European Club standards. Our pace will be moderate. There is a 20 minutes climb at the beginning, the rest is quite flat.

Iconic view from Richmond Hill down towards River Thames is the only view in England to be protected by An act of Parliment. That's why celebrities such as Mick Jagger choose to live here.

Our path will go through Richmond Park and Pembroke Gardens. Here we will check out King Henry's mound, one of the highest places in London and it is actually possible to see St Paul Cathedral in the distance from here. After taking an hour of coffee/tea/breakfast break here, we will continue on to Ham House. We will walk along the perimeter of Ham House and from here we will turn into Thames Path. After checking out Richmond Terrace Gardens, a very pretty park, we will make our way to Richmond centre. Planning to arrive back at Richmond around noon time.

    Oh, so sorry, just realized I was supposed to be at this meetup. Failed to put it in my diary. Sorry again. It looks one spot was left so I hope I hadn't prevented anybody who wanted to come. Sorry.

    I am so sorry but I have decided to see my mother in Cambridge for Mothers' Day (had forgotten about it) so can't join you. I hope someone on the waiting list can take my place. Sorry to miss it.

    Thank you all for showing interest in this walk. I am looking forward to it. In order to accommodate more of you I have just increased the attendee limit to 20. I hope this is not going to cause too much problem finding places to sit in the cafe, which is the main reasin why we can't be too many. If your plans have changed, please don't forget to update your RSVP here so people from waiting list can take your place and plan for their weekend ahead of time.
