This autumn, Transport for London (TfL) is encouraging people to explore the Capital with 40 free guided walks. Autumn Ambles, on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September, covers a variety of fun themes, with walks varying in length from one to 10 miles and stretching across London from Wimbledon to Cockfosters.
The Pimlico to Westminster walk covers MI5 Millbank, MI6 & Lambeth Palace in Vauxhall.
New walks for 2017 include a specially designed dementia-friendly stroll around the flora and fauna of Southwark Park and a rock ’n’ roll themed tour of the famous sights of Camden. The walks are very popular, so people are advised to reserve their free place via walklondon.org.uk.
The walks are taking place one month after Public Health England released statistics showing how millions of people across the UK still don’t walk the recommended amount each month. GLA analysis also shows that if every Londoner walked or cycled for 20 minutes a day, it would save the NHS £1.7bn in treatment costs over the next 25 years.
These walks offer a great opportunity with something to suit all ages and abilities, with levels ranging from challenging treks to short strolls. Each walk is led by an experienced Walk London guide.
Event date: 24/09/2017
Open from 14:00 to 16:30
