This walk takes in some of South-East London's most lovely green spaces and hints of its Victorian past - and is now signposted as part of the Green Chain route, so you can probably leave that heavy A-Z at home.
Here are some of my highlights:
In Crystal Palace Park, take a detour before finding your way back onto the Green Chain walk. Check out the dinosaurs, the lakes and the site where the original Crystal Palace was rebuilt in 1854.
Sydenham Hill wood is a pretty little spot of ancient woodland, nestling between Forest Hill and Dulwich. The Green Chain takes you along the old railway track, which is fairly level, but there is plenty of opportunity for scrambling around and tree climbing nearby.
After this, one option takes you to nearby Dulwich Park, with its decent, newly licensed, cafe, from where it is a 10 minute walk to Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed by Sir John Soane.
The main route takes you through the first of two Victorian cemeteries, up the ineptly named One Tree Hill, and onto South London's answer to Highgate: the truly glorious Nunhead cemetery, now also a nature reserve. The Friends of Nunhead Cemetery organise regular open days and a public tour every Sunday at 2.15.
