A Good London Walk

Jump to last reply

I would appreciate a reality check on the draft walk proposal found below.

My intent was to have a long walk that provides good views of impressive buildings on a path minimally impacted by traffic. I'm guessing it is about three miles long and will take about two hours, not counting extra time to stop and visit places.

Other options would be to continue along the Thames and end the walk by crossing at Waterloo Bridge or at Blackfriars Bridge and skip Trafalgar Square.

Welcome suggestions on similar walks or modification to this draft walk. Any good pubs or other attractions along the way?

Westminster - Thames - Trafalgar Walk

Start: Westminster

Exit tube and view Big Ben (Clock Tower)and Parliament Buildings

Walk to Parliament Square and start down St. Margaret's Street

Pass (on your left) or take a quick peek inside St. Margaret's Church

Turn left beyond the corner of the Jewel Tower into Black Rod's Garden

Exit garden and cross Lambeth Bridge

Turn left when across the Thames

Pass or visit Lambeth Palace and the nearby Museum of Gardening History

Join the Thames Path National Trail and continue along Albert Embankment

Walk past St. Thomas Hospital and pass under Westminster Bridge

Continue along Queens Walk pass the London Aquarium, London Eye and Jubilee Gardens

Cross Thames at Hungerford Bridge

Walk up Norththumberland Avenue towards Nelson's Column

Enter Trafalgar Square
