About this walk
Bushy park is next to Hampton court palace and one of the royal parks. There are deer in the park so watch out! Dogs are meant to be on lead by the main pond.
From the carpark walk towards the pond - rhe right hand side. You can walk along side it but it can be busy so I veer off to the right and walk along the grass paths between the bracken. Once you reach the cricket pavilion /millennium wood turn left. Walk towards the little bridge with stream. Cross this and keep going straight. You can follow the path on the far right or just cut across the grass. Once give followed the path round the edge of the park you'll reach a road. Cross the road to the other side of the park. Turn left to follow the path. At the section where you can turn right next to a little road do so.Once you reach the carpark turn left to cross the road and head in that direction. You'll be walking across green grass/mole hills etc.Shortly you'll reach a fenced area on your right and left. These are woodland gardens. Lovely but no dogs allowed. Head through between the fences and you'll reach a stream. Cross over and turn left to follow the stream. Start to walk diagonally to the right to walk up the tree lined wide grass path. Ahead you'll see Diana fountain in the middle off a circular bit of road. Cross the road, walk past Diana and over the road on the other side to return to the carpark.
If you want a longer walk you can easily just follow the path the entire way round the park.

7 years agoPretty enjoyable walk. Walking the whole park takes about 2 hours. Pity about the woodland gardens being off limits. Parking is a bit difficult on a sunny day. Fun day out!
6 years agoI live very close to the park, I love it. There are lots of entrances all around the park where parking is free. The Rutting season can be a bit hairy as it sounds like Durasic park instead of Bushy park. You need to keep your dogs away from the large stags especially. There are some lovely spots for dogs to swim or paddle. Most dog owners are very friendly, and will point you in the right direction for parking or restaurant if lost. Can be busy on nice days or school holidays.
