stave hillWalking tours usually have roughly a 40% walking, 60% looking & listening to the guide ratio, i.e. on a 2 and a half hour walk you’ll spend about an hour actually walking. But this walk is for keen walkers who want to spend a higher proportion of the tour actually walking. And keen walkers often like to get away from the crowds, get plenty of fresh air and see countryside, views, waterways etc. So this walk takes in a large ecological park, various scenic rivers, canals and basins; two charming quiet old off-the-beaten-track villages, beautiful views, nice old architecture and some quaint old pubs and cafes for a stop if required. And you cross the Thames on Tower Bridge.
