Your walk. Your way

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 also accessible for all with tarmac paths.

Don’t forget your wellies and walking boots! Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.

All 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. Take a moment to reflect on who you are walking for by leaving 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 nearest to the Cemetery Road entrance, a few minutes’ walk from The Cafe at the Hawthorns. You can also 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. Plan your journey here.

To keep Southampton environmentally friendly please choose the most sustainable method of transport and car share where possible.

Registration will close Thursday 5th September 2019 and you will not be able to register at the event. So sign up now and get your team members to do so too!
