Start: Syon Park Finish: London Wetlands Centre
Capability Brown’s sophisticated ground-designs at Syon Park provides a breathtaking backdrop to the start of this route. This gallop through the green spaces of West London takes runners to Kew Bridge and the charming London Museum of Water and Steam. Runners will then skirt around the world-famous Kew Gardens with its monumental glasshouses and the Georgian splendour of Kew Palace, a favourite retreat of George III. Dipping down into Richmond and onto the Thames path, the finishing post can be found at the London Wetland Centre in Barnes, one of the capital’s best bird-watching sites.
