The Great Trees of London (West). A picturesque and interesting walk taking in six of the Great Trees (with brief commentary), plus Richmond, Richmond Park, both banks of the River Thames, and a famous riverside pub for lunch. Mostly flat and off road, but good surfaces. The Great Trees are variously famous for stature, beauty, age, rarity, quirkiness or history.
