Event description
Stroll by picturesque riverside West London villages, malls, fine houses, gardens and rowing clubs. Uncover quirky history and characters.

About this Event

Experience time-warped riverside villages and a series of malls lined with magnificent mansions, old fishermens’ cottages, historic pubs and a deluge of rowing clubs. Visit the birthplace of the English Landscape Garden Movement and pass by the finest example of Neo-Palladian architecture in Britain. Contrast Georgian splendour with lost industries, tales of hauntings and smuggling, radical socialists, courtesans, war heroes, film and tv stars.

This fascinatingly varied walk from Kew Bridge to Hammersmith Bridge starts at the quaint and relatively unchanged village of Strand on the Green. We pass a wooded island and make our way to iconic Chiswick House and Gardens, where we pause for refreshments before rejoining the river at old Chiswick village. The walk continues along the riverside, past a pub with the shortest bar in England and the final stretches of the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race. We finish at handsome Hammersmith Bridge, London’s first suspension bridge.
