WALK LONDON London borough walks (on London borough websites)
One of the cheapest ways to spend a summer day in the city is to go for a walk. And London has hundreds of walks to choose from. You'll find details of the capital's six major strategic walks at the Walk London website. But what about other walks, lesser walks, suburban walks, walks on your doorstep? How about one of those for an interesting day out?
So I thought I'd scour the websites of the 33 London boroughs to see what walks they have to recommend. And blimey, there are quite a few really interesting trails to follow, leaflets to download, pdfs to print, all for free. But only in certain boroughs, because a significant number of councils appear to have made little effort to encourage walkers to explore their leafy acres.
Here's my borough by borough London guide to free downloadable walks. Who'll spur you outdoors for a bit of healthy leisure and heritage, and whose website teams need a bit of a kick?
