“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”
“No city should be so large that someone can’t walk out of it in a morning.”
Pick up a copy of the Evening Standard magazine today and read Will Self’s article about walking in and out of London. Then wrap up warm this weekend, leave your home and walk for as long as you can. Because like Self, ‘I truly feel that if all Londoners walked out of the city once a year, it would do more for our sense of civic pride than any number of mayoral or local governmental initiatives’.
So, where to walk to? Head out of London through Wanstead and Snaresbrook en route to Epping. Or walk alone into London and gain some perspective at the memorial to heroic self-sacrifice at Postman’s Park.
Walking in London (and out of it) is always worth it, I promise.
