An Enchanted Evening's Barnes to Richmond Riverside Walk

How about an early evening stroll watching the river shimmer as the sun descends? We'll start at Barnes Station and walk towards Barnes Bridge on the river from which point we will cover 6 miles of continuous flat riverside pathway, taking in Chiswick and Kew en-route lasting around 2 hours.

Once in Richmond we can stop off at the White Cross Riverside Pub by Richmond Bridge and watch the sun go down.

The return is an easy train ride between Richmond Station and Barnes Station.

For the more hardy, there is the possibility of carrying on to Twickenham, another 25 minutes walk, but we can decide on the night.

Flat walk but Walking boots strongly recommended :-)  Barnes Station can easily be reached from Clapham Junction.

I will email my mobile number Friday morning to those that register.

£2.00 WISy group sub applies.

    oh dear, I'm realizing that the map is showing Barnes Bridge but it looks like the meeting place says BARNES station NOT barnes bridge. Is that right?? Please do confirm as I don't want to be in the wrong place. Thanks so much.

    • Mike

    Did this last September, but it was a bit of a race as the group didn't stop for any rest breaks or to admire the river.

    June 14, 2013

    • Tracey

      Oh.. Hope it won't be a route march.. May have even done it myself in September & don't remember any problem :-)
