Been to the museums? Browsed through every department of Harrods but still feel like you haven’t gotten to know South Kensington well enough. Do you have some energy left? Enjoy a slow contemplative stroll away from the hustle and bustle near the tube station and get to know some fascinating places. Here’s your guide.
Tate Modern and its chimney, Millennium Bridge with some of the most beautiful views of London, Thames beaches, St. Paul’s Cathedral and narrow streets of the City – this are the highlights of Clare Wadd’s daily walk to work. She’s Ramblers Inner London chair and the author of this guest post. She shares the highlights of the route and talks about the difference that morning walk makes in her day.
Find out where in Brixton, you can relax on hammocks, stroke the ponies and see typical South London landscape in this interview with my colleague Abs. She lives in Waterloo, works in Brixton and loves walking in London. In the interview she shares about gems of Brixton to be found on foot, her favourite places in the City and tells you why it’s worth signing up with a dentist in Guy’s and St. Thomas’ hospital 😉
This walk along rail arches leading from Vauxhall to Waterloo station is less intense than most of my walks, yet it provides a good insight into industrial history and contemporary culture of the area.
This post isn’t about galleries, cafés and streets, or at least not directly. It’s about something far more important. It’s about more ancient history than London can remember and a walk which doesn’t last 30 minutes or 2 hrs but it’s life-long. It’s about my everyday walk of faith. A walk with Jesus Christ. Even if it sounds scary, religious or weird to you, I thought it was important to publish it here, because without that walk there wouldn’t be no other.
Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia walk is a great chance to get to know a different side of Central London. Explore both for great architecture, good food, history and some other curiosities, like Pollock’s Toy Museum.
