Good morning! Sun is shining, London is waiting! If you don’t have any plans today, why not go on a walk?
The capital ring is great to see parts of the city you’ve never been before. I had rumbled on sections of the Capital Ring in North / East London before (e.g. along the Parkland walk, see here or along the river Lea, see here) but after I made the decision to tackle the complete Ring, this was the first “proper” section I walked in its entirety. The section is 8.5km long and you can find the official map and small description of the route by TfL here.
I think, this section gives a good flavour on what to expect along the ring in general
– quiet residential areas in Zone 2/3 (wow, those type of “normal family homes” seem to exist in London!)
– unexpected patches of greenery and nature (was i not walking along 5 train tracks a second ago?!)
– sometimes quite boring sections just walking along / next to busy roads (yes, we are still in London)
– unexpected gems and discoveries along the way (yay, found another “official walking path” to tackle on day and hats off to TfL another amazing architectural gem along the way!)
