Sessions restart in April.

Paddling on the Thames

Directions to Chiswick

Chiswick mapOur boathouse is located in the King's House Sports Ground on Riverside Drive, Dukes Meadows in Chiswick (W4 2SH).  The best way to get to our boathouse from central London is by train to Barnes Bridge station (from Waterloo, Vauxhall or Clapham Junction).  From the station (see sketch map):

  • Cross the Thames using the bridge which can be accessed on foot from the platform used for catching London-bound trains.
  • At the bottom of the steps on the far (Middlesex) side of Barnes bridge turn left (not straight on down the river footpath - if you come to the Civil Service Rowing Club boathouse, you've gone the wrong way).
  • After walking about 50 metres parallel to the railway embankment, bear right, cross a road and you will see a large blue sign and a gate at the beginning of a path marking the pedestrian entrance to the King's House Sports Ground.  Enter here and walk about 250 metres along the narrow footpath which passes between thick vegetation and the wall of a private tennis centre.  
  • The building in the Sports Ground where we meet is part of the fenced-off groundsmen's compound, on the right hand side after walking down the footpath previously mentioned.  There's a big white CSCC Canoe Club sign on the exterior wall of our shed.
  • If you need to get changed into your canoeing gear, you can change in the pavilion opposite the groundsman's compound (on the other side of a car park).  

If you're travelling by car, Riverside Drive is a turning off the main A316 road. Coming from the A4 at Hammersmith/Chiswick, it's the second "real" traffic lights.  If you get to Chiswick Bridge you've gone much too far. Coming northwards up the A316 from Richmond, turn right at the second traffic lights after you've crossed Chiswick Bridge.  The King's House Sports Ground is the last entrance on the right before you get to the river Embankment.  There is usually ample parking.  If you need any further directions, contact us.
