Walk yourself proud around the Circle line for Sport Relief.

TfL have teamed up with Sport Relief to get London moving!

Were you inspired by Jo Brand’s walk? Are you training for The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games? This walk with TfL could be the perfect warm up!

Join our led walk on Sunday 13 March and get moving for Sport Relief. This will give you a fascinating perspective of where the Circle line runs beneath ground.

Everyone is welcome on this free 14.5 mile walk. You can choose to walk for all or part of the distance.


The walk will start at 10am at four locations, you can choose to start at any of the following locations or join in later on along the way:

•    Fitzroy Square Gardens
•    St Botolph-without-Bishopgate Gardens
•    Christchurch Gardens
•    Kensington Gardens

View the route and start locations via the Google map here.

If you would like to join in along the route, the estimated arrival times at each location are:

Completing the walk at approximately 6.30pm

There will be a 20-minute stop for lunch at 2pm

To complete the walk in good time, we will take approximately 30 minutes to walk one mile.  This is a reasonably brisk pace but not a vigorous march.

The distance we have to cover in one-day means this is a led walk and there will be little time for stopping to hear about the history of the places, but we have an exciting podcast you can download and listen to as you walk, which will hopefully inspire you to find out more.

The walk will journey clockwise taking in along the way:

Kensington, Sloane Square, Westminster, the Embankment, Monument and Tower Hill. We will skirt Whitechapel and pass Liverpool Street and the Barbican. We pass through Farringdon, past Kings Cross, Regent’s Park and Paddington.

You will walk through the heart of London, passing by fabulous sights and sounds along the way.



There are toilets close to each of the start points.

Please wear footwear suitable for the distance you intend to walk, and clothing appropriate for the weather (which in March can often change).

Advice Note:

Please bring water and any refreshments you may want to consume along the way.
There will be opportunities for toilet breaks along the route.
