London Summer Walk 2024

  • Date and Time info: 24/08/2024
  • Location: London
  • Face-to-face

Explore the ‘gateway to London’ along the River Thames eastern section! Starting by Woolwich Royal Artillery Barracks, the 25km looped route heads along the Thames Path around Greenwich Peninsula – past the O2 Arena, Old Royal Naval College, Cutty Sark – through the Greenwich tunnel to Docklands and Thames Barrier Park. Then it's back to Woolwich via the 2nd foot tunnel. This is a route steeped in history and capped off with a BBQ and bar at the finish, making it a great summer bank holiday weekend adventure!
