Aldwych to Clapham Junction
I am planning on varying my running a bit by running from work (somewhere in Aldwych) to Clapham Junction before catching the train the rest of the way home. Just looking for a bit of advice on the route really.
I'm OK up to about Vauxhall as you can more or less just follow the river, but after that I don't know the area so well. Is it best to go up Wandsworth Road and the Lavender Hill, or am I better off heading up Nine Elms Lane/Battersea Park Road/Falcoln Road?? Any other obvious suggestions I have missed, bearing in mind that I'm looking to make this about 5 miles and I get lost easily???
Personally if you get lost easily I'd cross over at Waterloo bridge, run along to Vauxhall on Thames path past the London eye then at Vauxhall go down Wandsworth road and then just stay on that until you reach Lavendar Hill and the junction.
Its not very scenic though, so a diversion for more scenic is to skirt around nine elms and rejoin the Thames path (it gets a big off and on here), along the final bit of nine elms road then cut into battersea park along south carriage drive and then down the final bit of albert bridge road and onot battersea park road and finally turn left onto Falcoln road.
Loads of different routes to explore that way anyway
Thank you. I'll see if I can go the Battersea Park way for a bit of scenery. I may in future wish to make the run longer so getting to know the park might be no bad thing!
