With articles such as these, I always think it’s good to throw in a wildcard. In this instance, my wildcard is going to be running along the Thames. Despite being on the very edge of southwest London, I definitely think it’s worth the mention. I usually start nearby to Putney Bridge station. Heading along the North bank of the Thames, you will pass the leafy suburbs of Fulham and Putney and head out to Hammersmith via a traffic-free route. There are a variety of routes and options that you can take, which is the greatest thing about this particular area of London. Make sure to utilise either Kew Bridge or Chiswick Bridge to cap off a great run.
So the message to you folks is that there are loads of great places to run in southwest London. Bushy Park and Wimbledon Common are other notable mentions amongst a whole host of fantastic places to run.
