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

 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 and buses. 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 and bus stop; how far this is from the station / bus stop and links to maps between the station / bus stop and the route of the walk. There are also links to the bus time-tables at these stops. This is not a comprehensive guide of all the stations and bus stops accessible from the route, but it does have most of the stations and bus stops reachable within a mile and a few slightly further. Please plan well and keep safe.

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 service across the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge, from the end of stage 14 to the start of stage 15, is also included. There is also a free service over the bridge for those cycling - see LINK
