I've walked up a hill to get to Flamsteed House. Most of the rest of it is flat, but the observatory sits up higher.

Here is a cool video I just found:

Yes the observatory is about 500 ft higher up. It's not a mountain!

It would take half an hour or so to walk it; a bit quicker by bus from Southampton Row. The bus route map here will help you place attractions in relation to each other and public transport:

BTW, it's a very invigorating walk and you will pass a lot of interesting things. If you have the time, I'd walk it. I usually do...

Sabrina21: You need to 1) get a map of London - every book shop w/ a travel section has them; and 2) start a new thread instead of tacking on to a 3 year old one since not everyone will notice your post at the bottom

It is walkable - but it is a long (and likely damp/cold) way.
