Good morning! The weekend is almost here and the lovely folk from Walk London (the organisers of the great free walk weekends a few times a year!) have contacted me to share their next walking event with you. Its a walk along the Circle Line (or for non-Londoners, the yellow tube line) and its taking place This Sunday, 13th March, from 10:00 am.
I think you can’t just walk around London enough and this is a perfect opportunity to start (no time this weekend, here are some other tips to start walking in London!). The walk suits all abilities, as there are 4 starting points on the route (see map below in red), so you can choose the section nearest to your house or your favourite section and since its a circular walk, you can either go for the full 14.5 miles or just drop out at any point in time. And, the route is a “highlights of London” walk- it will pass through many of London’s historical landmarks such as Westminster, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge as well as many hidden gems, beautiful parks and charming neighbourhoods.
You can find an interactive version of the map here (as soon as its public access, I’ll embed it into this post but for now we need to do with the static version :))
The starting times for the four sections are 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm in: Fitzroy Square Gardens, St Botolph-without-Bishopgate Gardens, Christchurch Gardens and Kensington Gardens.
The Walk is for free, but you need to register – click here!
At the same time, the walk is a charity event for Sport Relief, so if you feel like supporting to this worthwhile cause, feel free to raise funds or donate. Any donation will help a young person, living with a disability in the UK to take part in sporting activities – so the money you fundraise can make a significant difference to someone’s life.
