The walk starts at West Brompton Underground and Overground station, and ends at Ravenscourt Park Underground station. For a shorter route, it can also be started or finished at Hammersmith Underground station between Sections 1 and 2. The full walk is about four miles long. It could also be done as a cycle ride, though there would be some walking involved.
In addition to four cafés at sites included in the walk, there are plenty of eating places along the route, including a number of riverside pubs just beyond Hammersmith Bridge, as well as several toilets. Apart from a few kerbs, it is step-free. All the gardens are open during daylight hours, unless otherwise indicated. Seating is provided in most gardens, and they are accessible to wheelchairs, except where stated.
Please be aware of your personal safety when walking. Walking in pairs or groups is recommended. Use designated road crossings where possible. A detailed map should be used in conjunction with this walk.
This walk explores some of the lesser-known garden squares, parks, churchyards and cemeteries in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and takes in part of the Thames Path.
