Walk London is a Transport for London funded project. We organise three free walking weekends each year which showcase some of the best walks in London and are open to everyone. All walks are designed to be away from traffic and connect some of London’s best attractions, parks, woodland, rivers, canals and open spaces..
The next walking weekend takes place on the 12 and 13 May.
To keep up to date with TfL’s walking plans, visit tfl.gov.uk/walking and sign up to our email alerts at https://tfl.gov.uk/travel-information/social-media-and-email-updates/email-updates

Yes, you need to book a place on all of the walks.
Choose the walk you’d like to take part in and you will find the short booking form on the walk description page, below the summary of the walk.
You will be asked to enter your name, email address and the number of places you’d like book. We will only use these details to contact you regarding the walk. You will be sent a confirmation email. If you do not receive the email please check in your email spam folder.
The overwhelming success of the Walk London weekends has resulted in some walks attracting very high numbers of people. To improve the experience of walkers and to keep everyone safe we’ve introduced a booking system.
Sorry but bookings can only be made on the Walk London website.
We would be grateful if you could email email@example.com so that we can free up places for other people. Please note that due to the number of cancellation emails we receive we will not be able to reply to your email.
You will not be allowed to join the walk.
Nothing! All the walks are free to join.
As many as you like – there’s no limit to the number of walks you can do over the weekend.
Our walks will run whatever the weather but please remember to dress appropriately. If it looks like rain please bring waterproofs or an umbrella. After wet weather many paths can be muddy so please ensure you have suitable footwear.
Please ensure you’re wearing comfortable footwear and appropriate clothing, particularly on the longer and more rural walks. Being cold or having wet feet will spoil your walk.
We recommend that you bring a drink and any snacks that you might want as there may not always be opportunities to purchase refreshments. Please check the walk details to find out whether you should bring a packed lunch.
Many of our walks are accessible although on occasion short detours may be required to avoid steps. Please check the walk descriptions for further information. To check accessibility at stations or on public transport please visit the Transport for London website.
If you have any questions about accessibility please email or phone us on 020 3151 1151 stating which walk you are interested in.
Sometimes confirmation emails will be sent straight to your junk folder so check there. Sometimes they are rejected by email servers ( particularly in the case of hot mail accounts). If you are sure you have booked your place but you are missing your confirmation email don’t worry, turn up at the walk you have booked as we will have your name listed.
Please use the Transport for London journey planner to find out the best way to reach the meeting point of your chosen walk.
Our walk leaders will be wearing high-vis Walk London jackets or armbands and will be looking out for walkers so you won’t have any trouble finding the group.
Unfortunately we do not produce maps of our led walks as walk leaders may decide to vary a walk route at the last minute depending on conditions.
You can find out more about London’s top walking routes and download maps and leaflets from Transport for London’s website.
We don’t have waiting lists for the walks. Keep checking the website. When we get cancellations we will re-release the places on the walk
Children are very welcome on all walks so long as they are able to keep up with the adults. Look out for our family focussed walks especially designed for families with younger children.
Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome to join our walks. Please note that some walks visit properties that may not allow dogs in their grounds.
**Spring into Summer 2018
The Walthamstow Wetlands walk does not allow dogs on the walk as it passes through a nature reserve.
Yes, you must book a place for everyone attending the walk.
