Every city walker deserves not only a nice walk but also walking gear that will make them comfortable and make them to enjoy the walking even more. I’ve made a list of things that I take with me for a walk as well as added suggestions of items and brands to look out for. (It’s NOT a sponsored post except for one item).
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.
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.
