Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

Edited: 27th January 2022

M3 Junction 1 dog walks on the heath, Greater London


The heath was once a place where travellers needed their dogs for protection against ruthless highwaymen like Dick Turpin. Now it's a great place to walk the dog if you're approaching or leaving West London.


Free car park 0800-dusk. WCs including disabled, Information centre.


Length of walk: 30-60 minutes

From the car park, go towards the information board to join the broad concrete track onto the heath. It's possible that this track might remain from the 1st World War when the heath was the base for aerial protection of London. Today it makes the heath accessible for wheelchair users.

The track leads through a field to a Public Footpath sign, where the main trails through the heath start and you can get to the facilities at the visitor centre.
