The London Walker's Tube Map...


Got a free weekend coming up? Why not plan a stroll around London with the excellent Londonist tube-style map of some of the key walking routes. Many excellent guidebooks and leaflets exist to help you explore the capital on foot.

Here's a short summary:

London LOOP: A 150-mile walk around outermost London.

Capital Ring: A 78 mile orbital trek around Zones 3 and 4.

Thames Path: The full route runs from source to sea, but some 40 miles can be enjoyed in the capital.

Green Chain Walk: A spaghetti plate of linked walks through the parks and woodlands of south east London.

Lea Valley Walk: Trek along the River Lea from Hertfordshire to the Thames.

New River Walk: Follow this 28 mile watercourse, a 17th century man-made river, from Hertfordshire to Islington.

Canal Towpaths: The Regent's Canal, Grand Union Canal and their branches offer many miles of pleasant walking in London. Watch our series of videos for more inspiration.

Waterlink Way: An eight mile route through parks, following the River Ravensbourne and its tributaries.

Hillingdon Trail: 20 miles of parks and rivers in this outer London borough.
