What is the London Green Belt Way?
This is a new Long Distance Path around the Green Belt of London. It is 222.5 miles long, starts at the front door of Hampton Court Palace and finishes in the middle of Hampton Court Maze.
It is broken down into 22 stages which vary in distance from 6.15 to 13.4 miles.

It includes a "Route" section where you can see "Stage Distance", "Interactive Maps of Each Stage and of the Whole Route", a detailed write up of "What You'll See", a "Summary of the Route" and "Photos by Stage". There is also useful information and tips about "Planning a Walk"; "Access Points to the path from Public Transport"; a section on "Where to Stay Around the Route", "OS Grid References & Post Codes" of the start point of each stage: a list of "Links & Useful Info" and a Accessibility around the Route.

How did this Long Distance Path come about?
The path has been developed over the last 16 years and in conjunction with a long distance charity run called the Green Belt Relay organised by Stragglers Running Club from Kingston-upon-Thames.
