Enjoy spectacular views of London in bloom on one of Transport for London's (TfL's) 'Spring into Summer' free guided walks, on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May.
There are 45 free guided walks across the Capital, organised by Walk London and TfL, which explore London's hidden gems, famous landmarks, parks and canals. There is something to suit all ages and walking abilities, whether you fancy a short stroll or a challenging trek. Many of the walks are family friendly with Animal I-Spy in the City, a gentle stroll searching for dragons, lions and unicorns and Goodnight Mister Tom, inspired by the much loved book, particularly popular with children.
There's also a new design themed walk following the Bakerloo line above ground - featuring Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle and the Marlboro Man. This is a special walk to celebrate TfL's 'Transported by Design' programme.
The walks, which have been running since 2007, have grown significantly in popularity as Londoners have embraced walking. To cope with the increased demand there is a new online booking system for the 'Spring into Summer' walks. It is quick and simple to book a free place by simply visiting the Walk London website,www.walklondon.org.uk
The 'Spring into Summer' weekend will include walks such as:
Saturday 21 May
Sunday 22 May
Ben Plowden, Director of Surface Strategy and Planning at TfL, said: `May is National Walking Month and we hope that our 45 free guided walks will inspire people to walk more around our beautiful and vibrant city. Walking is not only good for your health and wellbeing, but it is also the perfect way to explore new places and we are committed to making London the most walkable city in the world.'
The walks are led by experienced Walk London guides who provide fascinating facts that highlight London's curiosities, history and culture. The walks are free and all you need to do is book your place and come along.
