Green London Way
161 km / 100 miles
The Green London Way is a long distance footpath for London, and one of the earliest urban promoted walking routes, dating to 1991. It is a circular route of about 100 miles, not around London but through it. It brought the idea of the long distance way right into the country's largest city. At the same time it is a route which divides into 18 separate and easily manageable walks, each with its own distinctive character. The Green London Way links river and canal, towpath and abandoned railway line, urban footpath and little-known alley, park and common, woodland and heath. It is an introduction to the best and most beautiful of London's open spaces. The 18 separate walks vary in length from 3 1/2 miles to 10 1/2 miles, beginning and ending at points well served by public transport. The website gives updates to route sections where diversions are needed, as in the Olympic Park area (in 2012).
