Access to the Route of the London Green Belt Way from Railway Stations

 The Marlow Donkey at Spade Oak

The table below gives a list of points where the route of the London Green Belt Way can be accessed from railway stations. It lists the start and the finish points of each stage; has links to interactive stage maps; gives the places and distances in a stage which are easily reached from the relevant station; how far this is from the station and links to maps from the station to the route. This is not a comprehensive guide of all the stations accessible from the route, but it does have most of the stations reachable within a mile and a few slightly further.

Please Note: There is a break between the end of stage 14 and the start of stage 15 because of the Dartford River Crossing, and information on a bus route across the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge is also included.
