It can be easy to get into a routine when it comes to your commute but have you considered mixing it up and walking the final leg of your journey? It’s the perfect way to add some more exercise into your day and will help set you up for the day ahead or decompress after a hectic day in the office. If you have to commute to Stockley Park then this alternative is a pretty scenic choice.

We’ve teamed up with easitNETWORK, who work with business parks and communities to encourage greener commutes. As you may already know, Stockley Park is a pretty green business park, and if you’re getting on or off at Hayes & Harlington or West Drayton train stations you can make the most of the Grand Union Canal nearby and it’s only a 35 minute walking route.

Helpful Tip: Some parts of the path by the canal can be quite muddy after rain, so wear some shoes you don’t mind getting dirty!

  1. Hayes & Harlington to Stockley Park

Exiting on station approach, turn right onto station road and cross over the bridge. On your right you’ll find a staircase leading you to the canal side. Keep walking along the canal, passing two bridges until you meet an exit on your right, pictured above, which sign posts to Stockley Park.

Head up it, following the path until you meet Furzeground Way. You’ll start to see a glimpse of the business park ahead. Crossover and you’re in Stockley Park!

  1. West Drayton to Stockley Park

Exit the station, walking along station approach and turning right down High Street, crossing over the bride. On your right you’ll find a slope down the canal side, head down it, turning left to walk along the canal. Passing by the bridge pictured above in step 7, look out for the stairs immediately after it. Follow them up as they lead you onto Stockley Road. Soon you’ll find the entrance to Stockley Park on your right.
