Overview

Walking at a brisk pace through Charlton Park, Maryon Wilson Park and Maryon Park on parts of the Green Chain walk. We then walk alongside the Thames from the Thames Barrier to Greenwich where we will circumnavigate Greenwich Park.

A walk of downsides and up sides. The downside is mileage, it’s only 7 miles. The upside; no mud, steeped in history, a couple of steep hills, time to spend relaxing in Greenwich where there are pubs, cafes, a market and the Maritime museum. You could even finish the walk taking a boat back to central London. 

There are no toilets at Charlton station
