Start time: 11:15
Easy 5.5 miles / 8.9 km
Along Barge Walk to Kingston Bridge then through Home Park to Hampton Court. Possible drop off at Kingston Bridge. Meet at Hampton Court at 11.15. Train from Wimbledon 10.43 (check train times) arrives 11.03 or bus from Kingston Station to arrive before 11.15. Coffee stop at Kingston Bridge and Tiltyard Café/picnic at end of walk.
I have just learned that there are no trains from Sutton to Wimbledon all weekend. There is a train from Wimbledon to Hampton Court arriving at 11.12 am as per programme. People living in Sutton will probably find it easier to catch a bus to Kingston then change for a bus to Hampton Court.
I will be waiting at Hampton Court Station for arrivals by train and John will wait at the gates of Hampton Court Palace near Barge Walk for arrivals by bus.
There are 2 trains an hour from Hampton Court to Wimbledon for the return journey at 54 and 24 past the hour but then it will be a bus to Sutton.
