People spend a lot of time talking about getting out of London for some fresh air and countryside walking. It’s true that the capital was never going to be a top contender for Britain’s wildest walking but it is underrated when it comes to taking a pleasant stroll. With the Thames Path National Trail long distance path running through the heart of London, canal tow paths and plenty of large parks to explore, London has plenty of outdoor green space to enjoy. We have been increasingly exploring London with Roo (see the London Walks section of Baby Routes) and we love the sleepy backwaters of the canal route from Kings Cross to Regents Park, taking in bustling Camden Market along the way – a perfect pushchair walk. Primrose Hill and Greenwich Park both offer fantastic London views whilst Richmond deer park or Wimbledon Common will have you feel a million miles from the city hustle and bustle.
With summer around the corner, Walk London are celebrating with a weekend of over 30 free guided walks around the capital. If you’re at a loose end this weekend and in need of a bit of inspiration on where to walk in London then why not pop over to their website and check out the details of the walks on offer – from a historic wander, a Thames Path stroll to spooky ghost walks at dusk!
