The Capital Ring is a very liberating walk. London is so well served with public transport that little planning is required; there's no need to decide in advance how far to walk since the route is never very far from a bus route or railway.

deer.pngToday though, we did plan. I made a list of suitable railway stations to stop at with Hanwell being the most likely candidate, giving us a reasonable walk across Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park then down the River Thames and up the River Brent.

Here's today's lesson then: even though London's transport network is the best in the country, there are still some railway stations which don't have a Sunday service. At least an alternative bus was only a couple of hundred metres away.
