The best summer walks

Kew Gardens greenhouse

Picture this, itโ€™s another warm summers day and youโ€™re taking a stroll through an area of London youโ€™ve not yet explored with friends and family. Sounds great, right? โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒป

Instead of searching the internet for the best walks to take, here are some of our favourites to give you some inspiration. Plus, follow us on Instagram and TikTok for more ideas on things to do and places to visit. ๐Ÿ’ก

The Thames Path

Stretching from the lost floodplains of Richmond to the Dickensian stretches of the eastern marshes, the Thames Path offers walkers lots to see and do. 

Top sights to see along the route: 

๐ŸŒณ Battersea Park 
๐ŸŒ‰ Tower Bridge 
๐Ÿšข The Royal Docks 
๐ŸŒธ Kew Gardens 
๐Ÿ™ Canary Wharf 

Hampstead Heath

Thereโ€™s nothing better than a slow weekend wander in Hampstead Heath. โ™ฅ๏ธ

This wild park of woodland and meadows, tucked inside North Londonโ€™s zone two, sprawls over 800 acres and has some of the best views of the city! 

The Royal Parks

Youโ€™re spoilt for choice when it comes to The Royal Parks as there are eight to visit, and theyโ€™re free! ๐Ÿคฉ  

From self-guided walks to top quality entertainment, thereโ€™s so much to discover and enjoy at each of the parks.  

The Jubilee Greenway

The Jubilee Greenway is the most recent addition to the Walk London routes. The 60km route was completed in 2012 to mark the Queenโ€™s Diamond Jubilee and the London 2012 Games, linking together all the major Games sites. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง 

Some of our favourite sites on this route include: 

๐Ÿฐ Kensington Palace 
๐ŸŽธ O2 Arena 
๐Ÿšข HMS Belfast 
๐ŸŽญ Shakespeareโ€™s Globe Theatre  
๐Ÿ› Camden Market

The Line

If youโ€™re looking for a walk with something a little different to look at, then walk The Line, Londonโ€™s first dedicated art walk. ๐ŸŽจ 

The route runs between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Stratford and The O2, following waterways and the line of the Greenwich Meridian. You can get to The Line by underground, overground, bus, and even by boat or cable car! โ›ด ๐Ÿš
