Join us for a walk/hike along the Thames that inspired Turner and other painters, from Kew Gardens to Kingston (trains to Victoria and Clapham Junction, zone 4 with Oyster). The ground is relatively flat, though you need to walk easily at a normal pace. We shall have a short break in the middle of the walk.

Walk length 8 miles/13 km approx. linear. The end time may vary, depending on pace and weather.

At the end of the walk, we'll have optional drinks at the Kings Tun opposite Kingston station. It's a large Wetherspoon pub.

The walk might be cancelled the day before or shortened on the day if bad weather is forecast. BBC weather
Other unforeseen circumstances might also force us to cancel at short notice.
