From Mortlake Railway Station, the route heads north across Mortlake Green and down an access road to the Budweiser Brewery, soon reaching the Thames Path on the south side of the river. The Thames Path is then followed westwards for 8km, passing on the way Chiswick Bridge, The Public Record Office, Kew Bridge, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew (the world's largest botanic park) and the Royal Observatory at Richmond, the Meridian Line, Richmond Lock and Twickenham Bridge. The walk then strikes inland, climbing Richmond Hill past the Star and Garter Home. Richmond Park is entered from the west through Richmond Gate and left to the north through Sheen Gate. The walk concludes with a section through a residential area (East Sheen) back to Mortlake Railway Station.
