Join us for 20 mile day walks with a pub lunch in the country a train ride from London

 

WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE LONDON GROUP, LDWA

Our members enjoy an active group offering Social Walks and Challenge Events.


SOCIAL WALKS

Our social walks are typically conducted at a fairly brisk pace, of around 20 miles with a lunch stop.
They utilise the extensive network of footpaths and bridle ways mostly in London, Surrey, Sussex, Kent & Essex.
You will not need a car to join us as all our social walks start and finish at a public transport facility normally a railway station.
The average numbers of walkers you can expect to meet on any one walk is less than 20.
