Route Description

The Tamsin Trail provides a circuit of Richmond Park in south west London, connecting park entrances at Roehampton Gate, Robin Hood Gate, Kingston Gate, Ham Gate, Richmond Gate and East Sheen Gate. It is almost entirely car free, a perfect route for families and less confident cyclists. A very attractive route in any season, the route takes you away from the hustle and bustle of south London.

The route gives you the opportunity to explore all corners of the park and the many attractions within, such as the Isabella Plantation and Pembroke lodge. National Route 4 crosses the middle of the park and can be combined with the Tamsin Trail to create shorter circuits of the park if required. This also provides cycle links outside the park: to the River Thames and Kingston to the west and to Barnes and Putney to the east.
