Kenley Aerodrome

When one of the ladies in my walking group suggested walking around Kenley Aerodrome I was sceptical as the idea of walking around a circular tarmac path wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I imagined going for walks with my son and meeting new people. However, I was pleasantly surprised – the space was very green since the airfield is surrounded by Kenley Common and Coulsdon Common and this walk was completely hassle free requiring no navigation (a big plus for me since I have no sense of direction!) and was different to walks I normally do and I enjoyed watching the gliders taking off and landing.

Walk Length, Duration and Available Routes
I did a very leisurely lap (1.8miles) of the airfield with a group of mum’s using buggies and slings and it took us about an hour.
