Event Details

Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information


GOC London's circuit of the Capital Ring has been up to now entirely south of the Thames in the old counties of London (formerly Kent) and Surrey. This leg takes us for the first time north of the river into the old country of Middlesex.

This is one of the easiest sections of the Capital Ring, with few gradients as it mainly follows a number of waterways. The walk first follows close to the Thames through the riverine communities of St Margarets,  Isleworth and Brentford. It then joins the River Brent / Grand Union Canal through Hanwell to Greenford. It is also a very green section passing through Syon Park and a number of other parks and open spaces.

The walk will be about 9 miles in length. As with other sections of the Capital Ring there will be opportunies to leave the walk early, should people find this convenient.

Terrain / Difficulty

Easy, level walking, mainly on firm towpaths and tracks and some grass paths which are likley to be muddy. There are steps at Richmond Lock footbridge and some short slopes.

Approximate Distance

9 miles
