What to expect on the day
Take the shorter 3.5km walk for a gentle stroll around the common, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 7km walk is two loops of the short route, and is also accessible for all with tarmac paths. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
Both routes will start and finish at “The Flats” by Cemetery Lake, where there will be a hive of activity to get everyone ready for Memory Walk. Please note the event site is on grass. Amongst the excitement take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for and leave a message on the Memory Tree and watch it blossom through the day.
How to get there
Memory Walk will start and finish at “The Flats” by Cemetery Lake, which is located in the centre of the common, a few minutes’ walk from the Douro Memorial. You can access on foot from The Avenue and Hill Lane.
There is no dedicated event parking, please use city centre parking and public transport. Southampton Common is 1.5km walk from Southampton Central Station, and located on frequent bus routes. Visit Southampton Journey Planner to plan your route.
