If you live in London, the chances are you take all its wonderful offerings for granted, and as a result rarely get out and about to enjoy them. On the other hand, there's so much to keep you busy in the capital that it's more than likely you're only aware of a fraction of what's actually going on.
So at the end of May, why not take advantage of a special Walk London event and get to know a little more about this fantastic city? Thirty-six walks, which are all absolutely free to join, are being laid on by the organisers on the 25th and 26th of May.
Distances go from the 'I'm feeling a bit lily-livered' 1.5 miles all the way to the 'I've got legs and lungs made of steel' 17 miles.
From the two-hour Somewhere Else London walk ("a wonderful walk that gets you into back streets that you'd never find off your own bat") to the six-hour Glorious London Loop ("highlights include High Elms Country Park, the Wilberforce Memorial with its wonderful view and the Keston Lakes"), there really is something for walkers of all ages and abilities.
No bookings are required, so all you need to do is drag yourself out of bed, slip on some walking shoes (and some clothes would be a good idea, too), and make your way to the starting point. What could be easier?
The walks are a splendid way for you to learn more about London, get some gentle exercise and hopefully make a new friend or two. Check out the event's website to choose a walk, and go along and enjoy!
