About the London Summer Walk

Starting alongside the Woolwich Royal Artillery Barracks, this 25k looped route heads through Charlton, along the Thames Path and around the Greenwich Peninsula.

You'll go past the O2, the Old Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark. Then it’s through the Greenwich foot tunnel and into Docklands – past the Thames Barrier Park and back to Woolwich via another foot tunnel.

A route steeped in history with iconic sights, and capped with a BBQ and bar at the finish – this will make for a wonderful end of summer celebration.

All levels of experience are welcome. Join as an individual, team or as a family.

This event is walking only. No jogging or running is allowed.

Walking and wild camping to manage my mental health
