Enjoy spectacular views of London on one of Transport for London’s Spring into Summer free guided walks next weekend, May 21 and 22.
There are 45 free guided walks across the capital, organised by Walk London and TfL, which explore London’s hidden gems, famous landmarks, parks and canals. There is something to suit all ages and walking abilities, whether you fancy a short stroll or a challenging trek.
Many of the walks are family-friendly, with “Animal I-Spy in the City”, a gentle stroll searching for dragons, lions and unicorns and “Goodnight Mister Tom”, which looks at life in the City during the Blitz, inspired by Michelle Magorian’s much-loved book, are particularly popular with children.
There’s also a design-themed walk following the Bakerloo line above ground – featuring Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and the Marlboro Man. This is a special walk to celebrate TfL’s ‘Transported by Design’ programme.
The walks, which have been running since 2007, have grown significantly in popularity as Londoners have embraced walking. To cope with the increased demand there is a new online booking system for the Spring into Summer walks. It is quick and simple to book a free place by simply visiting the Walk London website, www.walklondon.org.uk
The walks are led by experienced Walk London guides who provide fascinating facts that highlight London’s curiosities, history and culture. The walks are free and all you need to do is book your place and come along.
All walks start and finish within easy reach of public transport.
