Kensal Green in London

Please forgive my ignorance, but I'm pretty unfamiliar with Greater London. Is Acton Town at all near Kensal Green (walking distance; I'm a good walker)? I'd like to visit Chiswick Auction house and Kensal Green cemetery in the same afternoon. I have been completely unable to find a map that covers these areas - the tube map shows them light years from each other, but of course the tube map in no way replicates the real City. Thanks for any help.

You need http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk

They estimate about an hour and half to walk, 50 minutes by public transport with several changes.

For a map, try www.streetmap.co.uk

Chiswick and Acton are a bloody long way to Kensall Green, with no easy route.

If you want to see an old victorian cemetary combined with Chiswick/Acton try Brompton Cemetary. It's at West Brompton tube and is easily reached from Chiswick and Acton.

Thank you both very much - for the map and suggestion of Brompton. I'd completely forgotten about Brompton Cemetery. I'll put on my cemetery list right under Abney Park.
